When you’re a researcher, scientist, or even any sort of person that is thinking to partner up with an organization, it is important to see if they have certain qualities. These qualities are what we are going to be focusing on in today’s discussion.
There are a lot of perks to partnering up with an organization. They can provide you with funding, connections, access to certain documents and papers, invitations to expos and symposiums, and a lot of other things. These can sound pretty great and it is—provided that you’re partnered up with the right organization of course. To help you see if you’re approaching the right one (or have been approached by the right one), try to see if they have these particular qualities:
No good organization will want their pool of members to stagnate. Organizations that care a lot of about the talent that their members carry and the future of the group itself will want to provide training opportunities for them.
Good organizations often partner up with others to give their members a chance to meet other like-minded individuals and secure good chances for them to sharpen their craft and produce good results.
One of the best ways to check if the organization that you’re looking at is okay is check out how old it is. If it’s only been a couple of years, there might be some perks like being one of the first few members. However, this isn’t exactly a best time to judge what they’re like or if they can adapt to changes.
Organizations that do not adapt to change do not survive for long. Try to check out the organization’s history. What sort of organizational change did they have to weather?
No one particularly likes being part of a group or organization that has no clear heading and no clear form of leadership. If the organization that you’re looking at doesn’t seem to have a clear system of order or of leadership, are you certain that’s one you want to be part of?
Visible leadership is important because you know that you will be guided accordingly and you will be able to rely on the people who are in positions of leadership. Always remember that a ship without a good captain will never find its intended location.
These are just a few qualities which good organizations should have and are known to have. These are certainly present in Tactic Project! We hope that you’ll be able to partner up with an organization which has such qualities. We’d love to know what you think. What other qualities should good organizations have?
