Project Risk Survey – PinkREADY
What is PinkREADY?
PinkREADY is an IT Service Management (ITSM) project risk identification and mitigation planning service that enables customers to realise the promised benefits of ITIL® projects, avoid unnecessary costs and support organisational change.
Why is this important? Many process improvement initiatives fail because risks and barriers are not properly identified before the start of a major change. Increase your chances of success by using PinkREADY.
How Does PinkREADY Work?
Pink Elephant reviews the “health” of 22 critical success factors necessary for ITIL project success, based on several best practice models and Pink’s extensive 20 years of ITIL experience. The service leverages online data gathering tools and a facilitated risk analysis/planning workshop to deliver three key outcomes:
- Visibility into a change initiative’s state of health
- A prioritised plan for managing risks to the project’s success
- Key inputs for managing change
Who Is PinkREADY For?
The service is aimed at organisations that are starting major change initiatives or those already progressing through a change and are experiencing problems. Depending on which of these critical questions you face, Pink Elephant works with key stakeholders, including management, staff and suppliers, to find the answer:
- Are we ready to start?
- Are we ready to move forward with an investment in an ITSM project based on the history of past transformation projects and our current operational culture?
- Are we ready to go live?
- Are we ready to deploy the ITIL processes based on the activities completed during the planning, design and build phase of the project life cycle?
- Are we ready to continue?
- Are we ready to continue with the ITIL transformation program based on the success or failure of the project so far?
- Save Time – Proactively identify strategic, program and project risks that can derail your ITSM project, and use this information to mitigate them
- Save Money – Avoid unnecessary costs due to unplanned project overrun or failure
- Understand Your Environment – Gain insight into the cultural and political impact on your ITIL project, and use this information to plan a targeted communication and education plan to improve management and staff buy-in
- Manage Risk – Use the prioritized risk exposure report for executive decision making on risk mitigation
PinkREADY is available as both a consultant-led survey, and an online subscription.
The consultant-led PinREADY survey may be the best approach when you only wish to conduct a single survey, or where cultural challenges would limit the effectiveness of an online approach.
