Organizational Audits

The Organizational Audit, also called a Cycle Audit, is a practical, lean, swift assessment of an organization's capacity in each area of the Cycle: artistic and program planning, marketing, board and "family," fundraising, and other revenue. 

The Audit is not a strategic plan; rather its result is a renewed focus on the most salient issues facing an organization and a series of short-term (e.g. one year) recommendations designed to stabilize or strengthen an organization in key areas. The Audit consists of both a rigorous self-diagnosis and deep study by senior Institute consultants.

In addition to the Cycle Audit, the DeVos Institute offers discipline-specific audits in: 

  • Board structure and performance
  • Financial structure and performance
  • Marketing
  • Fundraising
  • Staffing structure
