CJ 550 Final Project Milestone Three Guidelines and Rubric
Overview: The performance assessment allows you to gauge the current level at which the criminal justice organization is performing. It will identify areas in which the organization is excelling and areas in which the organization needs improvement. This is the foundation for planning a strategic response to any identified deficiencies within the criminal justice organization.
Prompt: Submit a draft of the performance assessment (Section III: D) of your final project.
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
D. Performance Assessment: In this section, you will assess the performance of your selected subdivision in the organization in relation to the mission and goals of the overall organization by performing a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) analysis.
i. Identify the major internal factors that positively and negatively affect the organizational performance. Justify your identifications. For example, a key internal factors may be the selection criteria for staff or clients.
ii. Identify the major external factors that positively and negatively affect the organizational performance. Justify your identifications. For example, key external factors may include laws, legislators, and citizen input.
iii. Based on the previously identified internal factors, analyze whether or not the organization is maximizing its strengths and minimizing its weaknesses. Substantiate your claims. For example, consider the areas of the subdivision that have the most impact on success, such as the classification of offenders.
iv. Based on the previously identified external factors, analyze whether or not the organization is maximizing its opportunities and minimizing its threats. Substantiate your claims. For example, consider the areas that are most vulnerable in assuring success and how these can be turned into strengths, such as housing inmates in a reception area to adequately assess their needs, not simply classifying on offense criteria.
Guidelines for Submission: Your paper must be submitted as a 2- to 3-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, one-inch margins, and at least three sources cited in APA format.
