Synopsis:
The Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management

The National Space Society board of directors held its retreat and it was an amazing success. The Self-Assessment Tool was an excellent tool to guide us through the process.
--Richard E. Biehl, National Space Society

We have found the Self-Assessment Tool to be particularly helpful in assisting organizations to clarify their missions and reconceptualize strategy and tactics. The concepts presented and the carefully formulated questions are relevant to both established groups and those just starting out.
--Aliza Mazor, resource development coordinator, Shatil, a support project for voluntary organizations in Israel
