About the Program

Organizational Readiness is a critical success factor for Information Technology (IT) deployment projects. This is an area that is frequently overlooked and generally not formally managed by Project Managers. Ensuring that an organization is “ready” to use, operate, manage, administer, and support a new IT system prior to its deployment will result in a smoother transition to the new system.

Organizations that are “ready” will more easily and promptly adopt the newly deployed system fully realizing its intended benefits. This presentation explores the idea of Organizational Readiness as it relates to IT system deployments and the importance of formally planning and managing it to ensure project success.

About the Washington Circle Luncheons

PMIWDC's Washington Circle luncheons are a series of free brownbag luncheons hosted at 2201 G St, NW in Downtown DC. There are luncheons every fourth Wednesday of the month, unless posted otherwise.

This program series is made possible by the generous support of George Washington University School of Business, which offers a Master of Science in Project Management (MSPM) degree. The MSPM program is designed to meet the needs of working professionals who want to enhance their ability to integrate complex projects, motivate people, and achieve cost-effective results. With courses offered both on-campus and online, students have the flexibility to complete the degree from virtually anywhere.

Washington Circle luncheons are free and open to the public. Pre-registration is preferred, but walk-ins are welcome on a first-come, first-served basis.
