    Interesting article. The organization that will undertake capacity development needs to own the process entirely. It assumes organizations have an institutional maturity to undertake the capacity development process. For an organization that may not be at that self-reflective stage where capacity development is deemed necessary for its continued growth, would you recommend that it undertake the capacity development review and planning every 2-3 years?
