  3. Were lessons learned captured and communicated?

  4. Who will be responsible for documenting the Qubole requirements in detail?

  5. What is the implementation plan?

  6. Is the impact that Qubole has shown?

  7. How might the group capture best practices and lessons learned so as to leverage improvements?

    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.
