Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


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

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

Examples; 10 of the standard requirements:

  1. How frequently do you track Apache Spark measures?

  2. The approach of traditional Apache Spark works for detail complexity but is focused on a systematic approach rather than an understanding of the nature of systems themselves. what approach will permit us to deal with the kind of unpredictable emergent behaviors that dynamic complexity can introduce?

  3. What should a proof of concept or pilot accomplish?

  4. Do we monitor the Apache Spark decisions made and fine tune them as they evolve?

  5. How do we keep the momentum going?

  6. Strategic planning -Apache Spark relations

  7. Has implementation been effective in reaching specified objectives?

  8. Will a response program recognize when a crisis occurs and provide some level of response?

  9. Will it be accepted by users?

  10. What is the total cost related to deploying Apache Spark, including any consulting or professional services?


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 Apache Spark book in PDF containing requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

Your Apache Spark self-assessment dashboard which gives you your dynamically prioritized projects-ready tool and shows your organization exactly what to do next:

    • Dynamically prioritized projects-ready RACI Matrix shows your organization exactly what to do next:

 

STEP 3: Implement, Track, follow up and revise strategy

The outcomes of STEP 2, the self assessment, are the inputs for STEP 3; Start and manage Apache Spark projects with the 62 implementation resources:

  • 62 step-by-step Apache Spark Project Management Form Templates covering over 6000 Apache Spark project requirements and success criteria:

Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:

  1. Responsibility Assignment Matrix: Is the entire contract planned in time-phased control accounts to the extent practicable?

  2. Responsibility Assignment Matrix: The staff interests Ð is the group or the person interested in working for this Apache Spark project?

  3. Cost Estimating Worksheet: Does the Apache Spark project provide innovative ways for stakeholders to overcome obstacles or deliver better outcomes?

  4. Scope Management Plan: Is it possible to track all classes of Apache Spark project work (e.g. scheduled, un-scheduled, defect repair, etc.)?

  5. Cost Management Plan: Is PERT / Critical Path or equivalent methodology being used?

  6. Procurement Audit: Was the chosen procedure the most efficient and effective for the performance of the contract?

  7. Scope Management Plan: Are changes in deliverable commitments agreed to by all affected groups & individuals?

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Apache Spark investments work better.

This Apache Spark All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.

    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.

    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!!
