The Progressive Technology Project (PTP) has developed an ambitious set of programs to strengthen and meet the divergent needs of diverse grassroots community-led organizing groups using technology to advance their efforts. To that end, PTP developed an self-assessment tool that will help organizations think about what they do and how technology can support their work.

Larger organizations will find the tool useful to identify strenghts and weaknesses.

The tool overviews organizational reliance on IT, the risk management, the people, the processes, and the technologies used to secure IT in the organizations.
