Institutional Strengthening Guide 

The Institutional Strengthening Guide is intended to serve as a reference for organizations wishing to develop or improve existing institutional strengthening systems and processes. The Guide presents principles, minimum standards and best practices, business processes, references and tools deemed important for effective, efficient, and sustainable organizations. The Guide consists of ten chapters that cover the key functional areas of most organizations. Each chapter (and indeed each step and process within each chapter) can be used as a stand-alone document. CRS offers the Guide as an adaptable tool which may be used to develop new, or strengthen existing, policies, processes and practices.

Download the full package (14 MB; best with Adobe Reader 9 or later)

The guide is also available in Arabic, French, Portuguese and Spanish.
