Diagnosing Readiness: Testing Organisational Capabilities

Emerging from previous 'Whole of Government' research was the development of a qualitative tool for assessing the readiness of an organisation for change in a public sector context. We have obtained seed funding from the Australia and New Zealand School of Government to develop a quantitative tool which is almost ready for piloting. The novelty is found in public sector setting (most readiness research is undertaken in the private sector), the elements being used for the diagnosis and the fact that it is looking at both the individual and the organisational levels.
