Every organization must have a model, foundation or some sort of basis of evaluation. We use a model developed by James Regal. It posits four primary areas of business administration that must be managed by every business, five if you count Communication as a separate area.
Every business must have and manage the money it needs to hire and manage the people to produce its products/services in order to market and sell or deliver them, and make a profit.
Non-profits have similar needs if they are to remain viable.
Evaluations based on this model quickly reveal the areas of need. Struggling organizations will inevitably have one or more of these areas that are underdeveloped or under managed.
