    Seems quite handy - going to start using it next month as we're investing quite a lot in it. This will define for us what to do in this space and solve a real problem (rather than chasing shiny objects).

    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.
