Stages of Business Readiness

This model is as well researched, stress tested and respected by a multitude of IPMS practitioners as the core ‘organisational design’ model and the most powerful ‘business readiness’ test they have come across. The rate of adoption is 100% because it is an easy to understand and complete system, spanning the end-to-end life cycle of establishing a high performance organisation.

The 8 Stages of Business Readiness

Each Stage has a clear purpose and measurable outcome. Within each of the 8 Stages are 5 Steps, and within these are a comprehensive set of enabling tools.

1. Vision/Culture/Goals

Embedding the Company’s vision and objectives within every individual in my function, forming a common culture.

2. Services Defined

3. Service Process Map

Clear unambiguous processes, workflow and metrics with excellent handoffs into and out of my function.

4. Skills Group Management

5. Resource Planning

Clear process of resource demand planning that matches current and future work demands.

6. People Management
