Policy and Strategy Development

A policy development process is undertaken before program implementation. AWF Pvt Ltd underpins policy formulation as it enables the clients to evaluate possible options and then select those that are best suited for a particular program. For clients, it is also important to develop policies that allow enough flexibility for future changes that may be needed. AWF Pvt Ltd considers policy development is key to clarify the expectations, safeguarding the interests and bringing a consistency and credibility with possibilities of scalability and replication.  Whether the objective is to develop a short-term action plan or a long-term strategic plan to turn policies into actions, AWF Pvt Ltd will partner to customize the best approach.  By understanding key components of the work environment (i.e., strategic intent, resources, processes, organization design, and culture) we can focus on how to achieve improved results and effective service delivery. Our team at AWF take pride in our ability to form both likely and unlikely strategic partnerships from the development sector organizations, private sector businesses, community and local and provincial government agencies.

Organizational Performance/ Capacity Assessment

The performance is generally view in terms of  “effectiveness” in achieving organizational mission, purpose or goals. AWF Pvt Ltd tends to link the larger notion of organizational performance to the results of the particular programs. At the same time, AWF seeks their performance in terms of “efficiency” in deploying resources. This relates to the optimal use of resources to obtain the results desired. Finally, in order to remain viable over time, AWF assess that interventions must be both “financially viable” and “relevant” to its stakeholders and their changing needs.  Effective programme delivery is driven, in part, by organizational capacity, which AWF Pvt understand as existing in seven basic areas: strategic leadership, human resources, financial resources, infrastructure, programming and process management, and inter-institutional linkages. Each of these seven capacity areas may be described in sub-components, as for example in the organization’s strategic leadership capacity that is understood as its structure, governance, and leadership, strategic plans and niche management. For AWF, Human resources, financial resources and infrastructure are seen as resources as well as the management of these resources. AWF harness the capacities that result from the relations, partnerships and alliances they have established with other organization referred to as inter-institutional linkages.
