  • 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 997 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which GD&T improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 997 standard requirements:

  1. Is the hand off between sales and manufacturing disjointed, with drawings and technical specifications having to be re created multiple times, and with poor integration to key business systems?

  2. How can CAD tools capture all of the decisions and information generated during the process of design to enrich the contextual information surrounding design decisions and design artefacts?

  3. How are the best HIT executives leading the way with organizations, executive peers and technology partners to create the climate for increasing innovation and transformational change?

  4. Is a building official required to notify an architect of record when another architect/engineer takes over a project, uses that architects drawings, or makes changes?

  5. What might be lost as traditional design methods, as design drawing, are replaced with the release of more accessible, less expensive, technological replacements?

  6. How many times has management waived the requirement for the drafter/designer to adhere to the standard in the interest of getting the drawings out the door?

  7. Which are the reasons that make architects use computation in design, and which are the most common forms of the use of computation in architectural design?

  8. Can every stakeholder clearly agree with, support, and draw a line to the structural components and cost allocations aligned to mission or functional area?

  9. What broader conclusions about culture, governance, technology or business processes do you draw by looking at the root causes of penetration test issues?

  10. Do you lead in a specific product category, a part in the 3D printing chain exporting CAD designs, or in research in advanced greener printing materials?

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 GD&T investments work better.
