The feedback from this process forms the starting point for a new cycle of assessment and improvement. It relies on the participation of those who work in an agency as the “consultants” who collect the information and assess the current state of the organization. Assessment enables participants at all levels to look at the organization and ask if the pieces are in place to create the type of organization it aspires to be. The involvement of employees also provides leaders with an opportunity to build an internal case for change to meet the increasing and evolving demands of their constituencies.

It depends on the core processes and the demands on a particular agency and must balance the need for assessment against the available resources. There are certain times during the annual cycle when the work of the agency makes it predictable that the needed level of attention would not be available.
