Readiness Assessment Done the Modern Way

Understanding your department, operating unit, or company’s readiness to undertake a project has never been more important due to the staggering costs associated with project failure.

“It is surprising how often experienced project teams ignore the early warnings and move forward into the project lifecycle despite serious problems in many areas that are key to project success and will ultimately lead to the Black Swan event materializing.”

Measuring execution capability is the #1 metric that determines the success of strategic initiative outcomes

A readiness assessment is the mechanism that gets organizations on the right side of these statistics by helping company leaders identify the root causes of weakness within their organization that negatively impact project performance. While these reports have tremendous value in theory, the reality is quite the contrary. Not only do traditional readiness assessment reports take consulting firms weeks if not months to complete, but they’re riddled with inaccurate data caused by human bias.

Eliminating human bias from data in order to make the best decisions for an organization is far from a new concept — and yet, executives simply haven’t had a better option… until now.

Your team deserves a better way

Large scale projects are greatly impacted by a lack of readiness and executives suffer from their lack of insight into their own capabilities to deliver.

At M Corp, we empathize with this frustration. We understand the tremendous risks our clients face when they move forward on projects without understanding their team’s capability to successfully deliver. We understand the pressure our clients face when they are expected to deliver large IT projects on time and within budget. And we understand that our clients haven’t had a readiness solution that could meet their needs and the demands of their organization.

You’ve needed a new solution to traditional readiness assessments for a long time—which is why M Corp is excited to share the news about the launch of our new flagship readiness-assessment product, ReM Score. With ReM Score, you can stop putting your success at risk.
