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

Featuring 956 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which PPM improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 956 standard requirements:

  1. Has your organization demonstrated the use of sound information system and security engineering methodologies in integrating information technology products into the information system and in implementing the security controls contained in the security plan?

  2. Does Business Continuity Management take a holistic business-focused view and is it able to handle the consequences of an increasingly global business/ product eco-system in an increasingly regulated environment?

  3. Worth what paid for (wwpf): the quantitative evaluation by a person in your customer segment of the question: considering the products and services that you offer, are they worth what clients pay for them?

  4. If there are systems that will no longer support the organizations business needs, either through poor performance or excessive cost, how does IT leadership in the organization plan to address the issues?

  5. Critical vendors - how many servers do you have in use with installations of products from vendors with complex licensing requirements, and from the already stated who conduct stringent compliance audits?

  6. Does it replace or negate traditional project management concerns with risk, scheduling, metrics, and execution, or does it shift how you think about these and necessitate new techniques and approaches?

  7. Licensing expertise - do you have the licensing expertise for smaller vendors with high audit risk, including product licensing, applying to servers/ clients/network access/virtualized environments?

  8. 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?

  9. Identify a product that has been successfully modified to meet changing consumer needs and, as a result, has avoided the decline stage. can you modify the market, the product, or the marketing mix?

  10. What is your spending on genuine new products versus product renewals (improvements and replacements), or product extensions, or product maintenance, or cost reductions and process improvements?
