    So far I have only had time to browse it very superficially, but form that it looks very comprehensive and at the same time practical. As soon as I find time I will do a short item on it on my literature pages and point risk management professionals in your direction. Have a great day, and all the best!!

    Standard Requirements is a straightforward guide. It is a tool to help develop a detailed vision of all areas impacted by an implementation, and a useful tool for scoring readiness and implementation quality.

    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.
