Capability Alignment

The Capability Alignment is a tool based originally on BS 11000, which has now been superseded by the international ISO 44001 standard.

It is typically completed by a number of participants to establish the the degree of convergence/divergence between organisations. It also establishes the readiness of an organisation to engage in collaborative working relationships/partnering arrangements.

Answers questions like:

  • “How ready are the parties to enter into a collaborative relationship?”
  • “Where are the strengths and weaknesses in knowledge and capability?”
  • “Where are opportunities for knowledge sharing between the parties?”
  • “Do our present challenges stem from a lack or gap of knowledge and/or capability in a particular area?”
  • “What competencies and behaviours do we need to develop?”


  • Web-based managed service.
  • Automated participant invitations, reminders and progress tracking.
  • Optional anonymity control.
  • Capture of parameter scoring and related issues.
  • Reports updated in real-time.
  • Simple or ‘in-depth’ questionnaire (latter based on our Capability Assessment).

Additional options:

  • In-depth gap analysis between organisations, departments, functional teams, etc.
  • Capture suggested improvement actions.
  • Export comments and suggested improvement actions to action management tool.
  • Categorise relationships for category-based reporting.
  • Categorise participants under ‘roles’, for role-based reporting.

How it works:

  • Individual or multiple self-assessments of one organisation (or department, project, team, etc).
  • Typically 2-10 participants per organisation (scalable to as many as needed).
  • Aim to repeat every 12 months.
