Background of the problems
Survival of most corporate organization is mostly dependent on acquired and developed knowledgeable skills and experience of their employees. The employees are expected to develop along with the contemporary and in response to rapidly growing competition in the corporate world. Change itself has been the most enduring phenomenon and a necessary condition for development for manpower to cope with and adapt to the dynamic nature of our work environment. The need for capacity building in most organization has come to be universally accepted as a vital tool in improve the input of employees including administrators.
The success of most organizations can to a large extent be attributed on the calibre and quality of the employees. No organization, no matter the size and resources can survive without competent and qualified manpower. The need for capacity building of employees in Nigeria becomes more pertinent in view of Nigeria’s quest to develop and industrialize especially since Technological innovations in business today practically renders skills and methods ineffective for tomorrow’s activities.
Similarly, Interest in improving nonprofit management is neither new nor revolutionary. Whether called organizational development, leadership training, technical assistance, management improvement or capacity building, funders have long supported efforts to increase the organizational performance of nonprofits. What is new perhaps is the level of interest in and resources directed toward capacity building.
As nonprofit organizations play increasingly important roles in our society, it becomes even more critical for them to perform effectively. In response, nonprofit managers have demonstrated a growing interest in management practices and principles that will help them build high-performing organizations, rather than just strong programs (McKinsey & Company, 2001).
While the benefits of capacity may be compelling, the actual effort of building capacity can seem daunting indeed. It can be hard for the nonprofit manager to fund, hard to launch, and hard to implement. It takes a long time and the need is not always apparent to staff, volunteers, board members, or donors.
This study intends to focus on the Impact of Capacity Building on Organization Success with particular reference to Non Profit Organizations. The Niger Delta Community Change Network (NDCCN) was chosen as study for this research. This NGO was selected for study because of its nature of business especially since it focused more on capacity building. This was essential in other to have a basis for evaluating the Impact of Capacity Building on organization success. An Organization that is not involved in Capacity Building may not be in a position to provide credible responses to the issues raised.
