Organizational Readiness

Organizational Readiness refers to ‘the extent to which organizational members are psychologically and behaviorally prepared to implement organizational change’. When organizational readiness is high, members are more likely to initiate change, exert greater effort, exhibit greater persistence, and display more cooperative behavior, which overall results in more effective implementation of the proposed change. Conversely, when organizational readiness is low, members are more likely to view the change as undesirable and subsequently avoid, or even resist, planning for the effort and participating in the change process.[1]
