 Expanding the Readiness Responses  Expanding the Readiness Responses   Engagement Commitment   Engagement Commitment

You will see by sequencing the assessment in this way we cautiously and gradually introduce the stakeholders to the project Commitment process. We do this with safe sounding terms like readiness. We elicit responses and setup environments that seek, nurture and promote these responses. We get a project team ready, set the scene, establish a foothold, and get them to identify each other, to establish where they are individually in relation to the rest of the group. Then we get them to pause and have a breather while they review where their project partners are, where they are and what the gaps are. Then we engage. So you can see the sequence just like the referees call when he wants a clean efficient rugby scrum-down.

As the team begins to concentrate more on the broader environment and landscape that will influence and affect the project, they will be much more suitably placed to assess the readiness of the team and the perceived challenges to work in this way. It will become less of a surprise too as we begin the process to demand that Commitments to the statements are made by the team members and that they are adhered to with vigour. These Commitments are important precursors to the start of the project and we really need to understand what they are, now.
