Cirrus Change Readiness was created by a team of change practitioners in Starkweather Association Services. We wanted to deliver better outcomes to clients who were adopting new technology. To deliver better outcomes, we needed to go about it differently.
We are a team of research nerds who continue to look for ways to improve the change experience, deliver more value and share the practices that make change easier. We curate both the theory and pragmatics behind best practices, so organizations are ready when it’s time to shake things up and move into the future.
We started by asking: Why do so many change projects wobble, even when using trained change practitioners? Change is hard. Everyone knows that. But we found that something was missing from other change systems.
The metrics to drive action were limited. After running hundreds of technical adoption projects and using change management principles and applied psychology, we understood how to ask questions to effectively impact change. We also developed a tool to not only deliver the risk results, but to provide specific actions to mitigate that risk.
