Alternative approaches to Capacity Building practices in the public and private sector

Commissioned by Capacity Builders and Cabinet Office

This study aims were to examine alternative practices in capacity building found in the public and private sector and to examine how these could be used to benefit third sector organisations. The study identified opportunities in terms of forms of coaching, being more selective in who is offered support, using existing private and third sector organisations to provide support, and encouraging greater involvement in advocacy and partnership working. Finally it recognised that support should be encouraging change as well as identifying when start up or growth was inappropriate as risks are too great.
