Developed for New Zealand organisations

NZ Navigator is a free online self-assessment tool that has been developed for New Zealand community organisations by Platform Trust, Association of Non-Governmental Organisations of Aotearoa (ANGOA), Social Development Partners, Bishop's Action Foundation and is supported by the Department of Internal Affairs.

The focus of NZ Navigator

NZ Navigator is focussed on building strong and effective organisations and communities, enabling users to assess the performance of their organisation by rating all the important areas of the organisation’s operation – direction, governance, leadership, people, administration, finances, communication, evaluation, and relationships.

What are the benefits for my organisation?

Once you complete an assessment, you will have immediate access to a report with charts, scores, feedback and resources (including an action plan) to assist you to further develop your organisation. Although not linked to any funding requirements, you can use the results of the tool when you talk with your funders, to demonstrate the work that you are doing and to highlight those areas where some organisational development activity can be supported.

Because the tool is self-administered, it presents an opportunity for groups to be open and honest about key aspects of their organisation. It also provides a benchmark for future evaluation and you can compare any two assessments to see the progress you have made.
