Value of a Readiness Assessment:
A project readiness assessment sets up your project for success by identifying key areas of potential failure. Our process:

  • Identifies gaps in readiness and recommended actions to close them.
  • Solidifies project goals and expectations.
  • Prepares the institution for the selection process.
  • Indentifies and engages campus stakeholders early.
  • Prepares leaders for managing the complexity and challenges of this project.
