Diagnostic Analysis

diag_anal_whA Process for Strengthening Organizational Functioning

The purpose of the Center’s Diagnostic Analysis Process is to provide decision-makers with valid and reliable information about how their church is currently working.

Diagnostic analysis is a dynamic process of organizational learning. The scope of evaluation is the effectiveness of the functioning of the whole system and each of its parts.  A clearly-articulated Systems Model of the Church serves as a diagnostic tool to guide this process. This offers a framework for “what to look at” when evaluating church organizational effectiveness.

How does it work? 

Diagnostic analysis blends interviews, questionnaires, group interaction and document review to learn about all the components of a church organization. A dynamic feedback process allows for mutual testing and exploration that enables mutual learning.
