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

Featuring 994 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of Process Design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which CTQ Tree improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 994 standard requirements:

  1. What is the nature of the contractual relationship between the sponsor and third parties responsible for CTQ activities is there shared risk, or is it a strictly fee-for-service relationship?

  2. Are there device or trial participant characteristics that may make a trial participant ineligible that can only be ascertained after randomization and/or attempted use of the device?

  3. Have investigator sites been trained on the importance of timely and accurate data entry to support centralized/remote monitoring and/or in preparation for on-site sponsor monitoring?

  4. Do the elementary principals supervising employees during first year of professional practice differentiate the employees preparation based on the pathway the employees followed?

  5. Does the foundation have any formal or informal programs that allow program staff to work in the community or with nonprofit organizations you serve for periods of time?

  6. Is there the potential for bias to be introduced because the trial participants condition will be known at the time of randomization and prior to allocation/treatment?

  7. Is there a defined process for identifying when corrective and preventive actions should be created, including verifying that actions are implemented and effective?

  8. Are you able to collaboratively plan across all of your business functions to optimize investments , improve shareholder return and maximize efficiency?

  9. Are database lock procedures clearly defined, including roles, responsibilities, and processes for correction of errors identified after database lock?

  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in CTQ Tree 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 CTQ Tree investments work better.

This CTQ Tree All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
