Then find your goals...

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

Featuring 999 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of Process Design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which IBM Cloud improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 999 standard requirements:

  1. What strategies for IBM Cloud improvement are successful?

  2. Are there any easy-to-implement alternatives to IBM Cloud? Sometimes other solutions are available that do not require the cost implications of a full-blown project?

  3. How do you measure improved IBM Cloud Service perception, and satisfaction?

  4. Is it possible to estimate the impact of unanticipated complexity such as wrong or failed assumptions, feedback, etc. on proposed reforms?

  5. Who gets your output?

  6. What baselines are required to be defined and managed?

  7. How do you deal with IBM Cloud risk?

  8. How do you verify the authenticity of the data and information used?

  9. How do you control the overall costs of your work processes?

  10. How do you ensure that implementations of IBM Cloud products are done in a way that ensures safety?

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:
