TOP ORGANIZATION READINESS ASSESSMENT TOOLS, TEMPLATES & SOFTWARE
For Assessing, Tracking, Reporting, & Managing Change Readiness Assessments
Intro: Finding This Year’s Best Organizational Readiness Assessment Tools, Templates and Samples
My background as a Sr. Transformational & Change Management Consultant involves helping large organizations with their business transformation, large-scale projects, sales transformation, and marketing needs. I have had the opportunity to work with some of the largest financial services and technology companies including Cisco, Intel, HSBC, Berkshire Hathaway, and Deloitte.
Based on my extensive experience in conducting organizational readiness assessment for projects and transformational initiatives, I sometimes get queries including:
- Which tools are the best organizational readiness assessment software?
- What are best practices for conducting large-scale readiness analysis?
- Where can I find an easy-to-use top readiness assessment template and samples?
- What are the best org readiness tools for small, mid-sized and large scale organizations?
Supply tends to follow demand, and so I worked with AGS’s development team to design and develop a top organizational readiness analysis software tool and template that is streamlined for any type of project, easy-to-use and customizable for a wide range of needs.
This readiness assessment tool is reviewed in detail below.
Also, I’ve included a list of other best readiness analysis tools and readiness assessment tempaltes below, that you can use for your organizational readiness analysis and assessments.

TOP ORGANIZATIONAL READINESS TEMPLATE & TOOL – REVIEW
AGS’ Top Readiness Analysis Tool & Readiness Management Software
In collaboration with AGS developers and designers, I developed and launched AGS’ top change and organizational readiness analysis tool and readiness management software to be a simplified, easy-to-use, and flexible Excel-based software that anyone can use for their readiness analysis.
This software tool allows you to quickly increase impacted business units’ readiness for change by assessing and understanding readiness segments.
Get better and faster insights for intuitive planning and reporting. Eliminate the guesswork on which departments are ready for the change, and which ones are not, and easily share insights using graphical visuals.
Airiodion Global Services’ Organizational Readiness Assessment Tool provides you with a holistic analytics dashboard for real-time tracking, assessment measurement, monitoring, and reporting.
It includes a structured database matrix for capturing output from your readiness analysis, as well as proven agenda topics, itinerary, and questions to help you conduct your workshops, meetings, roadshows, and engagement with impacted groups.
Track Target Audience Readiness Over Time Using AGS’ Org. Readiness Software
One of the biggest benefits of Airiodion Global Services (AGS)’ Organizational Readiness Assessment Tool is that it provides you with the ability to track target audience groups and end-user readiness over time.
You can easily see which groups are ready, less ready, or not ready at all, as well as track which audience groups are progressing from a lack of awareness or a lack of support for the program to a state of full awareness and an increased willingness to support the change.
Easily track changes (or lack of) in target audience readiness.
Real-Time Organizational Readiness Assessment Template Dashboard
AGS’s organizational readiness software tools also includes a Readiness Assessment Tracking and Management Dashboard, which is always up-to-date with the progress you are taking to complete your organizational readiness assessment.
This Dashboard is especially beneficial because it provides you with analytical insights that allows you and your team to quickly make sound decisions for preparing each impacted audience group for the transformational change.
Organizational Readiness Software – Holistic 360-Degree & Segmentation Insights
AGS’s organizational readiness tool’s Tracking and Management Dashboard provides you with a holistic 360-degree view that gives you immediate analytics and insights into your targeted audience groups, so you always track where each group is on their change curve.
Easily see which groups are willing to support or resist the change, and develop the appropriate readiness preparation plans.
Get a holistic view of current vs future state knowledge and experience gaps. This information will drive the scale and scope of your training and coaching activities before Go-Live, and also during the post Go-Live normalization phase. For example, wider gaps mean more an organization is less ready and will require a lot more training, communications, and coaching, than a different target audience group that is less gaps.
Get a holistic view of the capacity and analytic predictions of the efforts needed to transition specific groups. Groups that require an extensive level of effort to make updates to their existing job procedures, job aids, policies, and processes will require more change management support, engagement, coaching, and preparations.
Tackle the most pressing groups first and be more effective, efficient, and productive.
In addition, groups with little to no capacity (bandwidth) for the change will often be groups that resist the change. Centralizing all communications, engagement, and resistance management activities, and applying a targeted approach will help mitigate resistance and increase buy-in, acceptance, and support.
Streamlined Readiness Assessment Databases, Samples, & Templates
The AGS Organizational Readiness Assessment Tool includes readiness assessment samples and a best-in-class assessment matrix database that provides a defined structure, columns and data fields for efficient readiness analysis.
Data entered into the readiness analysis software tool’s readiness assessment database spreadsheets will be reflected in real-time on your reporting and tracking dashboard.
As mentioned above, the AGS Organizational Readiness Assessment and Tracking Tool provides you with a holistic analytics dashboard for real-time tracking, monitoring, readiness analysis measurement, and reporting.
Best Change Readiness Software Tool with Template, Pre-Defined Agenda Topics, Itinerary, and Questions
AGS’ Organizational Readiness Assessment Tool includes a Readiness Analysis Template which outlines a detailed step-by-step checklist of activities that should be taken before, during and after organizational readiness assessment workshops and meetings. It includes a streamlined agenda and itinerary for conducting these sessions.
Change management is similar to behavior science in that you need to understand the process for which people digest information, as well as the steps you can take to increase their receptiveness to your presentations and workshops.
The “Workshops & Meeting Planning” itinerary tab on AGS’ Readiness Assessment Tool’s Readiness Analysis Template provides you with proven steps that you can use to maximum engagement and receptiveness from the people you will be engaging with.
