The end of the millennium may hold significant difficulties for any system dependent on computer dates. Computers which misinterpret the year 2000 and other significant dates may require considerable repair. There have been many methodologies developed to assist companies with the process of Y2K repair. These methodologies and additional considerations for approaching Y2K solutions are presented. Specific measures to avoid logistics difficulties are discussed. The success of these measures can be considerably enhanced through the application of a transformation methodology. A proven transformation methodology for facilitating change is presented as applied to mitigating the Y2K risk.
