Interpretation of the scores:

Scores of mostly 1's and 2's: Very low readiness, high risk.

Need to develop "pull" so that stakeholders understand the change and feel motivated to participate. Employee "support" needs to be aligned, so that employees will have the ability to participate and will not encounter obstacles. Strong program and project "management" are required to continue to move the change forward and achieve results.

Scores of mostly 3's & 4's: Moderate readiness, moderate risk.

Moderate "pull" could build momentum, and moderate alignment means that employees will not encounter too many obstacles. But strong program and project "management" are required to continue to move the change forward and achieve results.

Scores of mostly 5's & 6's: Strong readiness, low risk.

The strong "pull" will build momentum and the strong "support" will provide employees with the ability to participate. However, the moderate "management" could result in the program overall not moving forward.
