NZ Navigator

Organisational self-assessment

A free tool that is available to all community groups in New Zealand.

The NZ Navigator tool helps to build 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.

NZ Navigator was established by a community partnership and is now administered by the NZ Navigator Trust. Phillipa project-managed the development of the tool. Barbara was a project team member, wrote the user guides and other content, and continues her involvement with NZ Navigator as the tool's technical administrator. Barbara is also a foundation Trustee, and currently contracted as the Hub Coordinator, for the NZ Navigator Trust.
