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

Featuring 949 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Global Centers of Excellence improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 949 standard requirements:

  1. Do you have an IAM architect? Hastily deployed pockets of identity infrastructure need to be maintained for the full lifetime of the devices. You do not want to set a presence of systems with low assurance levels that an organization later must handle. Do you need end-to-end authentication and authorization?

  2. Are you measuring performance that allows the CoE to set expectations for current and new work, thus providing answers to certain key questions such as: Are your design or resource presumptions reasonable?

  3. What are the ties for career progression within your organization and within the broader labor market (as compared to the three typologies of an HR career pattern: vertical, zigzag, and parachuting)?

  4. Which customers should you choose to serve through which channels, with which products, prices, and marketing programs, for which decision and life cycle stages, under which organization structure?

  5. Which customers should we choose to serve through which channels, with which products, prices, and marketing programs, for which decision and life cycle stages, under which organization structure?

  6. If an insider is a person that has been legitimately empowered with the right to access, represent, or decide about one or more assets of your organizations structure, what is an insider threat?

  7. Critical success factor is that appropriate governance needs to be in place. Is an appropriate organizational structure in place to manage your organization facing the cloud computing solution?

  8. How do leaders engage those outside the formal institutional structure (parents, community groups, businesses, media and others) in effectively supporting improved teaching and learning?

  9. For any given service area, what significant social values, beyond cost, capacity, and quality of service delivery, might be affected by a restructuring or a sharing of service delivery?

  10. What are your organizational structure and governance system? What are the reporting relationships among your governance board, senior leaders, and parent organization, as appropriate?
