STEP 1: Get your bearings
- The latest edition of the Enterprise Architecture Tools Self Assessment Toolkit containing requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.
Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…
- Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Dashboard to get familiar with results generation
Then find your goals...
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Enterprise Architecture Tools improvements can be made.
10 examples of the standard requirements:
- An organizationally feasible system request is one that considers the mission, goals and objectives of the organization, key questions are: is the THESUBJECT solution request practical and will it solve a problem or take advantage of an opportunity to achieve company goals?
- When information truly is ubiquitous, when reach and connectivity are completely global, when computing resources are infinite, and when a whole new set of impossibilities are not only possible, but happening, what will that do to your business?
- How do you measure the operational performance of your key work systems and processes, including productivity, cycle time, and other appropriate measures of process effectiveness, efficiency, and innovation?
- Instead of going to current contacts for new ideas, what if you reconnected with dormant contacts--the people you used to know? If you were going reactivate a dormant tie, who would it be?
- What is the kind of project structure that would be appropriate for your THESUBJECT project, should it be formal and complex, or can it be less formal and relatively simple?
- In retrospect, of the projects that you pulled the plug on, what percent do you wish had been allowed to keep going, and what percent do you wish had ended earlier?
- When you map the key players in your own work and the types/domains of relationships with them, which relationships do you find easy and which challenging, and why?
- How do you determine the key elements that affect THESUBJECT workforce satisfaction, how are these elements determined for different workforce groups and segments?
- What is the overall talent health of your organization as a whole at senior levels, and for each organization reporting to a member of the Senior Leadership Team?
- Are your goals realistic? Do you need to redefine your problem? Perhaps the problem has changed or maybe you have reached your goal and need to set a new one?

STEP 3: Implement, Track, follow up and revise strategy
The outcomes of STEP 2, the self assessment, are the inputs for STEP 3; Start and manage Enterprise Architecture Tools projects with the implementation resources:
- Step-by-step Enterprise Architecture Tools Project Management Form Templates covering the Enterprise Architecture Tools project requirements and success criteria:
Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:
- WBS Dictionary: Are the rates for allocating costs from each indirect cost pool to contracts updated as necessary to ensure a realistic monthly allocation of indirect costs without significant year-end adjustments?
- Project or Phase Close-Out: In addition to assessing whether the Enterprise Architecture Tools project was successful, it is equally critical to analyze why it was or was not fully successful. Are you including this?
- Stakeholder Management Plan: Are the schedule estimates reasonable given the Enterprise Architecture Tools project?
- WBS Dictionary: Budgets assigned to major functional organizations?
- Quality Metrics: How do you know if everyone is trying to improve the right things?
- Process Improvement Plan: Has the time line required to move measurement results from the points of collection to databases or users been established?
- Scope Management Plan: Are the schedule estimates reasonable given the Enterprise Architecture Tools project?
- Variance Analysis: What is the total budget for the Enterprise Architecture Tools project (including estimates for authorized and unpriced work)?
- Scope Management Plan: Are target dates established for each milestone deliverable?
- Schedule Management Plan: Is a process for scheduling and reporting defined, including forms and formats?

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any Enterprise Architecture Tools project with this in-depth Enterprise Architecture Tools Toolkit.
In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:
- Diagnose Enterprise Architecture Tools 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 Enterprise Architecture Tools 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 Enterprise Architecture Tools investments work better.
This Enterprise Architecture Tools All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
