Assessment tools

In their daily work, cultural operators often come up against methodological, administrative or financial obstacles. In response to the difficulties encountered by the partners in the course of their projects, the Global Alliance wanted to develop a tool that was relevant to setting up partnerships, in the form of simple, practical assessment tools that can be adapted to different cultural contexts.


These assessment tools are aimed at project managers or partners from public, private and civil society sectors and can be used as:


  • material for analysing the partnership methodology;
  • an educational tool that accompanies a capacity-building approach.


For ease of use, the partnership process has been divided into 13 steps, and there is an assessment tool for each one:

1. Becoming informed

Assessment tool 1: Internal assessment

2. Finding partners

Assessment tool 2: How to choose a partner
