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

Examples; 10 of the 621 standard requirements:

  1. Does the team have regular meetings?

  2. How significant is the improvement in the eyes of the end user?

  3. What role does communication play in the success or failure of a Embedded Systems project?

  4. Is the Embedded Systems scope manageable?

  5. Is there a recommended audit plan for routine surveillance inspections of Embedded Systemss gains?

  6. Who is responsible for errors?

  7. What successful thing are we doing today that may be blinding us to new growth opportunities?

  8. What sources do you use to gather information for a Embedded Systems study?

  9. What is your BATNA (best alternative to a negotiated agreement)?

  10. Are there Embedded Systems problems defined?


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:

Results

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

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Embedded Systems 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 Embedded Systems 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 Embedded Systems investments work better.

This Embedded Systems 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.

    This is a structured, in-depth review and how to work out how develop the controls and processes that will begin to solve the problem. Knowing what questions to ask is the starting point. The level of questions and analysis required will surprise, but this level of details is essential.

    Every high achiever has probably been criticized as a 'control freak' at some point. However, given the numerous daily distractions entrepreneurs encounter, if you want to do 'deep work' with broad-ranging impact, you have to control your time to make each day a masterpiece. Check Out The Art of Service's Self Assessments.
