Building on the research and indicators discussed in the book Mission Drift, Mission True Assessments evaluate an organization’s likelihood of staying faithful to the intention of its founding mission, operationally and spiritually. The assessment reviews guiding policies, practices, and outcomes in the areas of mission, strategy, human resources, operations, management, governance, and supporters. These two documents provide an overview of the assessment and of the assessment process.
