Examples; 10 of the 994 standard requirements:

  1. What if there was a way to reduce IT-related risks, maximize the benefits of technology investment, increase the value attained from IT, and ensure compliance, continuity, security and privacy?

  2. What would cause only some business sectors to experience labor productivity growth during a time when most business sectors have substantially increased information technology spending?

  3. How much of the increase in external market rates should be factored in the budget, considering your organizations ability to absorb the costs for the first year and future years?

  4. How can companies adhere to existing business objectives and budgets, which are often crafted well ahead of time, while still remaining agile and open to trying new technologies?

  5. Does your organization have a defined technology budget that separates technology expenses from other general overhead or supplies line items in your annual operating budget?

  6. How do other organizations who have already spent significantly on web analytics technology and staffing resources begin to fully appreciate a positive return on investment?

  7. How do you keep pace with information technology developments on the hardware side, given public procurement requirements (and extended schedules) and budget limitations?

  8. How can a listed entity provide sufficient information on how it is recognizing and managing risk for its investors and help them understand and assess investment risks?

  9. Can a real estate or property finance business dependent on personal relationships and creating unique individual experiences really be a technology or digital business?

  10. How much border security is produced with fewer agents and more technology (that is, the incremental or marginal effect of each of the inputs on outputs and outcomes)?
