Innovation Adoption Culture Pre-Assessment Guide

By the Innovation Adoption Practice

CoE Resources and Advisory Support Banner

With modernization comes change. Is your organization ready? Understanding your organization’s readiness for change and how your culture impacts change will influence successful technology adoption and sustainability.

Culture Pre-Assessment Guide

The Innovation Adoption (IA) practice area of the CoE now offers a Culture Pre-Assessment Guide that includes guided activities to help you understand and pre-assess your organization’s culture and its potential impact on your technology modernization initiative.

The guide provides resources for an organization to conduct their own culture pre-assessment, and the interactive workshop series compliments the guide and offers peer support.

Upcoming Workshops

If you are interested in participating in an upcoming workshop series, please register on Eventbrite for one or all of the following sessions:

Workshop 1: Introduction to Culture

May 26, 2022, 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Learn key elements of culture and its role in the change that comes with IT modernization initiatives. In this session, participants will gain tangible, usable knowledge and skills in order to support new or existing modernization projects, including:

  • How elements of an organization’s culture can help or hinder modernization efforts
  • How culture impacts modernization efforts
  • Key activities that support a culture pre-assessment

Workshop 2: Culture Pre-Assessment

June 2, 2022, 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. In this session, participants will apply specific techniques of the culture pre-assessment using information and resources provided in the first session.

Office Hours: Learn more about your Culture Pre-Assessment

June 16, 2022, 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. In these optional office hours, subject matter experts will be available to address questions on artifact collection, stakeholder identification, and any other inquiries on your culture pre-assessment.

Participants are encouraged to attend both workshop sessions and can also attend office hours to gain the designed learning and experience. The workshop will be facilitated by IA leads.

This workshop series is a virtual event through Zoom for Government. Live captioning is available to all participants. The sessions are open only for federal employees.
