Respondents answered in their own names rather than representing the official position of their employers; their answers were made anonymous in the report. Given the number of respondents, findings must be seen as food for thought and provocative questioning, rather than statistically proven trends and issues.

It compares views on the change journey from different stakeholders, such as CIO/IT, HR, Communications or early adopters. It gives a unique set of insights of interest for executives, strategists, change sponsors and change agents: what to focus on, and the right questions to ask at each stage the change.
