Then find your goals...

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

Featuring 995 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of Process Design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Autonomous Things improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 995 standard requirements:

  1. Are you an Enterprise Architect looking to automate test Data Management as part of a Continuous Integration process, so database copies are masked and spun up on test servers in AWS automatically?

  2. Does the regular Performance Monitoring include means as automated identification and reporting of unusual IT transactions, the analysis of system use patterns, and internal privacy audits?

  3. Are automated processes being risk assessed for Data Quality, the accuracy of algorithms and outputs and is Internal Audit equipped to confirm that technologies are working as intended?

  4. Are there processes that are taking your people too long that could potentially be automated through scripting or a transformation process running in a good Content Management system?

  5. Do you build a picture of what is going on in a competitive market by using Artificial intelligence and Machine Learning techniques to automate the reading and classification of news?

  6. What are the strategies to employ when faced with a monolithic block of a system in the midst of your nice modular, configurable, versioned, automated build and deployment process?

  7. Do you share your insights and expertise about automated malware processing and defensive practices which support Forensic Analysis, investigations and identify root cause?

  8. What are the capabilities that qualify a computer system to be trusted to solve problems that persist in KYC processes and to automate the routine work of KYC analysts?

  9. How do you start to work towards the longer run place-making benefits on offer from shared mobility, in the context of an increasingly connected and automated network?

  10. Are your organizations Fraud Prevention and detection capabilities keeping pace with the increasingly automated and data-driven nature of your business operations?

  • Diagnose Autonomous Things 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 Autonomous Things 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 Autonomous Things investments work better.

This Autonomous Things All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
