Then find your goals...


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

Featuring 939 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Machine Design improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 939 standard requirements:

  1. Why is change control necessary?

  2. How do we keep the momentum going?

  3. What are the implications of this decision 10 minutes, 10 months, and 10 years from now?

  4. What management system can we use to leverage the Machine Design experience, ideas, and concerns of the people closest to the work to be done?

  5. What tools do you use once you have decided on a Machine Design strategy and more importantly how do you choose?

  6. What key inputs and outputs are being measured on an ongoing basis?

  7. How does it fit into our organizational needs and tasks?

  8. What new services of functionality will be implemented next with Machine Design ?

  9. Who Uses What?

  10. How do we know that any Machine Design analysis is complete and comprehensive?


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:

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 Machine Design investments work better.

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

    This is a structured, in-depth review and how to work out how develop the controls and processes that will begin to solve the problem. Knowing what questions to ask is the starting point. The level of questions and analysis required will surprise, but this level of details is essential.
