About this Worksheet
This worksheet is a self assessment tool which you can use to review the organizational sustainability of the social enterprise. It will guide you to look at how the social enterprise is building 'capitals' that are important to ensure a healthy organization. This includes:
*Human Capital, which represents the knowledge, skills, abilities and capacities possessed by people involved in the social enterprise;
*Organizational Capital, which refers to systems and practices to be able to get things done, and to do them well and consistently;
*Financial Capital, which represents the financial health of the organization in a form of currency that can be traded;
*Social Capital, which represents the number and quality of the social enterprise's relationships;
*Intellectual Capital, which captures the knowledge assets of an organization such as ideas, inventions, general knowledge, designs and processes.
How to Use

On a scale of 0 to 4 (where '0' is 'not at all' and '4' is 'very strong'), rate the enterprise's progress in developing each of the resources listed below. Once you have rated your development, describe the rationale for the rating, and where necessary, outline specific actions for improvement.
