Landscape Partnership capacity and performance assessment

As LPs develop, it can be useful to assess the individual and collective competencies (values, knowledge, and skills) held by LP stakeholders for conducting ILM. Commonly useful competencies include facilitation, conflict resolution, business development, knowledge of specific ILM tools, effective training methods, financial literacy, resource mobilization, partnership development, and facility with information technology. Capacity analysis can identify gaps that might require either training (of individuals or the group) or reaching out to recruit additional partners with those competencies. LPs may also want to periodically assess their own performance. This would consider both the processes used by the partnership and progress in advancing collaborative action, and identify priorities for partnership strengthening (1.4).
