    Challenge is the pathway

    to engagement and progress in our lives.

    But not all challenges are created equal.

    Some challenges make us feel alive,

    engaged, connected, and fulfilled.

    Others simply overwhelm us.

    Knowing the difference

    as you set bigger and bolder challenges for yourself

    is critical to

    your sanity, success, and satisfaction.

    level: State/City Educational

    Policy, Chancellor’s

    Regulations.

    Capacity at the school

    level: capacity of the staff,

    parents, leadership,

    logistics.

    Building Capacity

    Observe & identify

    needs &

    opportunities for

    change

    Review the

    organization's

    mission & vision

    statements

    Identify capacity

    needs and plan for

    capacity building

    Discuss and agree

    on the support that

    can be provided

    Implement and

    manage the

    change process

    Monitor and re-

    evaluate the

    developments

    Begin by monitoring

    and studying the

    external

    environment in order

    to identify positive

    and negative

    aspects of the

    organization and

    opportunities for

    growth and or

    change.

    Review the

    mandates, missions,

    future plans and

    strategies; needs

    can be identified or

    clarified

    Understanding the

    external

    environment and the

    organizational

    mission & vision

    statements makes it

    easier to identify

    needs, wants and

    obstacles; clarify

    assumptions

    Identify what support

    systems and or

    interventions are

    needed, to create

    sustainable positive

    change.

    Support of the

    decision makers in

    the organizations is

    essential at this

    stage. As capacity

    building processes

    call for

    organizational

    changes, effective

    management and

    environment

    conducive to

    changes are needed

    Since not only the

    outcomes, but the

    process of capacity

    building is important,

    monitoring the

    process is essential.

    Based on the results

    of monitoring and

    periodic evaluations,

    you need to discuss

    and negotiate the

    strategy being

    implemented with

    the organization.
