The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Operational Readiness Review specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Operational Readiness Review Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 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 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 908 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Operational Readiness Review improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 908 standard requirements:

  1. Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, Continuous Release, and Continuous Delivery are key DevOps enablers. Automated testing involves automated, CI-driven execution of whatever set of tests the team has accumulated. However, if one of these tests fails, what does that really mean: does it indicate a critical business risk, or just a violation of some naming standard that nobody is really committed to following anyway?

  2. 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?

  3. Will the big data cloud environment support scale-out, shared-nothing massively parallel processing, storage optimization, dynamic query optimization, and mixed workload management better than alternative deployment models (e.g., on-premises appliances, software on commodity hardware)?

  4. Is the organization effectively monitoring changes to the information system and its environment of operation including the effectiveness of deployed security controls in accordance with the continuous monitoring strategy?

  5. Does a quality plan exist for significant it functions (e.g., system development and deployment) and does it provide a consistent approach to address both general and project-specific Quality Assurance activities?

  6. The subject of succession planning in the context of disasters is an unpleasant one: If key managers or employees can not be deployed in a disaster, who will step up and fulfill their responsibilities?

  7. What specific staging, readiness and deployment techniques will the Vendor use to determine the proper sequencing of deployment processes and functions required for successful implementation?

  8. Any change is difficult to deploy when the incentives available are modest. Why risk what you have for an uncertain future that promises to be no more than modestly better than the present?

  9. How do the testers easily find out the right sets of test cases that are either modified or newly created because of a change in business requirement, and execute only those test cases?

  10. Defining the digital assets that you want to protect is frequently one of the major challenges in a DLP deployment. When asked, What types of data do you want to protect?

  4. Duration Estimating Worksheet: How should ongoing costs be monitored to try to keep the Operational Readiness Review project within budget?

  5. Stakeholder Management Plan: Are actuals compared against estimates to analyze and correct variances?
