Organizations that desire to implement significant change will only succeed if they have an environment that is suitable for such change. In consulting speak, we call this “Organizational Change Readiness”.
With the benefit of our education, research and many successful change-oriented projects shaping our experience, TSI supports these beliefs. In fact, we have developed a set of simplified criteria that we often use with our clients to help assess how ready an organization to embark on an initiative for process improvement, redesign, and re-engineering and/or organizational change.
This Change Readiness assessment tool can be used in several ways including evaluating the perspective of several individuals (especially at various levels and positions) in your organization, measuring the readiness for change over time, as well measuring risk before exerting the effort and resources on a large change/process improvement initiative.
Change Readiness Assessment Instructions
Rank your organization on a scale from 1-10 (10 = highest possible) in each of the following categories defined below. Giving a score of “10” means that your organization meets or exceeds the description ALL of the time. A “1” would mean that your group is on the complete opposite end of the spectrum NEVER exhibiting these characteristics.
Once you have filled in the rankings, you can see your score by clicking on the Calculate Your Score button below. This will also show you the meaning of your score.
