Research and Development
We want to learn what makes good things happen. To do so, we study assessments, relationships, and the practical application of R=MC2.
Assessment/Tool Development. We have developed measures, methods, and metrics to diagnose and track readiness throughout implementation. This includes creating and refining validated tools, while also identifying proxy indicators that can help to capture changes over time.
Research and Evaluation. We study how to properly predict outcomes based on different readiness profiles. In diverse settings, different subcomponents may be differentially important. We want to know how to emphasize different subcomponents at different stages of an implementation process to better know how to support interventions.
Practical Application. Readiness needs to be practical. We use specific strategies to facilitate these changes. Using Change Management of Readiness (CMOR), we are assembling a robust repository of evidence-based interventions to build and sustain readiness.
Readiness is also most valuable when mainstreamed in an organization. Readiness-thinking helps people apply R= MC2 intuitively to a variety of different problems and conditions. When reporting, we also use simple language and interesting data visualizations to help connect people to the underlying concepts that make readiness useful.
