What is the ‘Change/Transformation Programme Readiness (SME)’ Pathway Audit?
In a new change or transformation programme, it is critical for an SME that there is alignment of key issues, such as delivery against strategic plan, good project management, communication, people management, organisation and defining deliverables. If any one of these fails, then it can have significant adverse impact on the whole programme, resulting in delivery failures and reputational damage.
Why use it?
Knowing your strengths and weaknesses in these key change and transformation areas will inform and empower you to deploy your resources effectively across the whole change/transformation programme. Often these programmes are additional to ‘business as usual’, and this audit will help you keep the programme effective and efficient, whilst also exploring your ability to absorb any changes into normal working practice.
How do I use it?
This is an easy to use online audit that is completed by managers of senior managers directly involved in leading or managing the change/transformation programme. It is more powerful and objective if more than one person completes the audit, around 3 to 6 contributors would be useful. The audit takes about 20 minutes to fill in, by responding ‘Generally Agree or Generally Disagree’ to a series of statements.
When is it used?
The audit can be used at any time before, during or even after the event to inform the organisation and people aspects. The earlier it is used in the process; the more planning time will be available for any subsequent actions or initiatives.
