Organized in a Data Driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...

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

Featuring 997 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of Process Design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which GSLC improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 997 standard requirements:

  1. Does your online security solution offer effective protection at both the network and application layers against the kind of threats that your organization could be targeted with?

  2. Is all non-console administrative access encrypted with strong cryptography, and is a strong encryption method invoked before the administrators password is requested?

  3. Does the solution support the range of cryptographic and other techniques that are needed to implement the required range of security strengths and assurance levels?

  4. Are there any controls in place to ensure proper and effective use of cryptography to protect the confidentiality, authenticity and integrity of information?

  5. Which is most effective in preventing the introduction of a code modification that may reduce the security of a critical business application?

  6. What if correlated with more Intrusion Detection system hits than normal, more firewall hits than normal, more Web logon failures than normal?

  7. Are other cryptographic solutions as cryptographic hashes considered in place of storing encrypted user passwords and authentication tokens?

  8. Are users required to authenticate with a unique username and strong password before being granted access to computers and applications?

  9. Does the solution integrate with the wide range of Computer Applications and platforms for which it might be required in the long term?

  10. Does the application provide a user interface that allows the user easy access and navigation between various parts of the application?

Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose GSLC 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 GSLC 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 GSLC investments work better.

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