What is the Change Readiness Index (CRI)?

The index measures how effectively a country’s private and public enterprises, government, people and civil society anticipate, prepare for, manage and respond to change and cultivate opportunity. Examples of change include:

  • shocks such as natural disasters and financial or social instability
  • economic and political opportunities and risks such as changes in demographics, technology and government.

How can I use the index?

A wide range of organisations can apply the data and insights from the CRI, for example to:

  • inform investment decisions by highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of target countries
  • improve government policy by benchmarking national strengths and weaknesses and identifying areas in need of reform
  • build leading practices by stimulating debate on change readiness and learning from higher-ranking countries
  • identify potential public and private sector partnerships by pinpointing areas to match capabilities and resources with highest priority needs.
