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 CAD Standards improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 999 standard requirements:

  1. For your CAD Standards project, identify and describe thE Business environment, is there more than one layer to thE Business environment?

  2. Are risk triggers captured?

  3. Has the CAD Standards value of standards been quantified?

  4. Was a Business Case (cost/benefit) developed?

  5. Who is responsible for errors?

  6. How do you monitor usage and cost?

  7. How can auditing be a preventative security measure?

  8. Should you invest in industry-recognized qualifications?

  9. How do you know if you are successful?

  10. What trouble can you get into?

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:

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any CAD Standards project with this in-depth CAD Standards Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose CAD Standards 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 CAD Standards 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 CAD Standards investments work better.

This CAD Standards All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
