Organizational Readiness is a critical success factor for Information Technology (IT) deployment projects. This is an area that is frequently overlooked and generally not managed by IT Project Managers. Ensuring that an organization is “ready” to use, operate, manage, administer, and support new IT systems/technologies prior to its deployment will result in a smoother transition to the new systems/technologies.

Organizations that are “ready” will more easily and promptly adopt the newly deployed systems/technologies, fully realizing its intended benefits. This presentation explores the idea of Organizational Readiness as it relates to IT system/technology deployments and the importance of formally planning and managing it to ensure project success. It also challenges the idea that IT Project success is just delivering on time, on budget, and meeting requirements.
