Are organisations ready for blockchain? The development of the Blockchain Readiness Assessment Tool
On the 28th of January a group of civil servants of the municipality of Groningen tried out the first concept of the BRAT: the Blockchain Readiness Assessment Tool. This is a framework to assess the readiness of an organisation to implement blockchain based solutions. It is being developed by the university of Gothenburg.
During the meeting the first test questions were discussed by several civil servants of Groningen that have been involved in experiments with blockchain technology. The researchers of the University of Gothenburg attended to observe and learn how the participants interpreted the questions and responded to them. They will use this data to further develop the tool. It will also be tested in other cities: Oldenburg and Edinburgh.
