Abstract: The organisation in this case, along with the collaboration of staff and a consulting partner, completed an organisational change readiness assessment in anticipation of an enterprise-wide system transformation. Preparation of people ahead of disruptive technology implementation provides a unique opportunity in any organisation. The subject of the case, a state-wide public sector entity, lacks an institutionalised change management culture and faces challenges consistent with many government organisations. The assessment methodology resulted in a significant amount of data that provided people, process, and cultural insight. The challenge facing the state is how to respond to the assessment as they plan for the technology project.
