Co-ops Got Talent (and Vision)

UCUR 2014Self-Assessment for Steering Committees & Boards

Building four strong cornerstones is key to co-op development. A successful group needs to be regularly monitoring all four. It is easy to see when you have Systems and Capital in place, but Talent and Vision can be harder to define. This assessment of the Talent and Vision cornerstones is intended to help your co-op’s growth through inquiry around development best practices. Evaluate process, communication, commitment, and more with this collaborative tool.

Board or steering committee members should each fill out the form separately, then come together to discuss the assessment. Are there areas that everyone agrees need work? Are there areas of disagreement that need further discussion?

Submit a consolidated assessment through our online tool if you would like help from Food Co-op Initiative addressing areas in need of growth.
