There are numerous benefits to self-assessments. Such processes can lead to the development of a strategic organizational plan with clearly defined short-term and long-term goals, measurable objectives, identified fiscal and personnel resources, and enhanced consumer and community partnerships.
Self-assessments can also provide a vehicle to measure outcomes for personnel, organizations, population groups and the community at large.
The NCCC views self-assessments as an ongoing process, not a one-time occurrence. The process offers organizations and their personnel the opportunity to assess individual and collective progress over time.
