Are organisations ready for blockchain? The development of the Blockchain Readiness Assessment Tool

31 January 2020 - Published by Evite van Winkoop
How do you find out if your organisation is ready for blockchain? And what would be necessary in your organisation to implement a blockchain based application? To help answer these kinds of questions, the BLING consortium is working on a Blockchain Readiness Assessment Tool (BRAT). This is a framework to assess the readiness of an organisation to implement blockchain based solutions.

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.
