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 999 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 999 standard requirements:

  1. Are assumptions made in Apache Spark stated explicitly?

  2. What improvements have been achieved?

  3. Is there an action plan in case of emergencies?

  4. Do you effectively measure and reward individual and team performance?

  5. How do you measure lifecycle phases?

  6. Have all non-recommended alternatives been analyzed in sufficient detail?

  7. How do you make it meaningful in connecting Apache Spark with what users do day-to-day?

  8. Do you know what you are doing? And who do you call if you don't?

  9. Will Apache Spark deliverables need to be tested and, if so, by whom?

  10. Do vendor agreements bring new compliance risk?

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 994 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

  • Diagnose Apache Spark projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Apache Spark and put Process Design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

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.
