Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 828 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Cloud RAN improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 828 standard requirements:

  2. Do several people in different organizational units assist with the Cloud RAN process?

  3. Who is the Cloud RAN process owner?

  4. Why identify and analyze stakeholders and their interests?

  5. You may have created your customer policies at a time when you lacked resources, technology wasnt up-to-snuff, or low service levels were the industry norm. Have those circumstances changed?

  6. Is it possible to estimate the impact of unanticipated complexity such as wrong or failed assumptions, feedback, etc. on proposed reforms?

  7. Is the Cloud RAN organization completing tasks effectively and efficiently?

  8. What tools were used to narrow the list of possible causes?

Results

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any Cloud RAN project with this in-depth Cloud RAN Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Cloud RAN projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Cloud RAN and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Cloud RAN investments work better.

This Cloud RAN All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.

    The Verdict: The Complete Self-Assessment package ticks a lot of checkboxes, especially for businesses testing the waters for decision making and performance enhancement and for companies that can not have a full-time professional on payroll to guide the initial implementation of their drive.
