Then find your goals...


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

Featuring 650 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which ACM SIGARCH improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 650 standard requirements:

  1. Do your employees have the opportunity to do what they do best everyday?

  2. Would you rather sell to knowledgeable and informed customers or to uninformed customers?

  3. As a sponsor, customer or management, how important is it to meet goals, objectives?

  4. Are there any easy-to-implement alternatives to ACM SIGARCH? Sometimes other solutions are available that do not require the cost implications of a full-blown project?

  5. What are your most important goals for the strategic ACM SIGARCH objectives?

  6. Implementation Planning- is a pilot needed to test the changes before a full roll out occurs?

  7. What charts has the team used to display the components of variation in the process?

  8. Does ACM SIGARCH systematically track and analyze outcomes for accountability and quality improvement?

  9. What should we measure to verify effectiveness gains?

  10. How can you negotiate ACM SIGARCH successfully with a stubborn boss, an irate client, or a deceitful coworker?


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:

  • The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the ACM SIGARCH book in PDF containing 650 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

    Every high achiever has probably been criticized as a 'control freak' at some point. However, given the numerous daily distractions entrepreneurs encounter, if you want to do 'deep work' with broad-ranging impact, you have to control your time to make each day a masterpiece.

    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.

    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!!
