About the Presentation

Do you have these questions:

  • Why is it so difficult to get my organization ready for change?
  • Why did my improvement programs not reach the level of success that I expected?
  • Why have other groups been more successful at making necessary changes than my group?

If so, this session will provide insights that will help you assess your organization's readiness for change. The session draws on a recent industry-sponsored study of the factors that drive the success of change programs for project organizations. The study provides unique insights into why certain organizations improve at a much faster rate than other organizations. By assessing those factors that inhibit change readiness, you can address them prior to launching improvement initiatives, thus improving the success of your initiatives.
