The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Requirements Management specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Requirements Management 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 819 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Requirements Management improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 819 standard requirements:

  1. Traditional data protection principles include fair and lawful data processing; data collection for specified, explicit, and legitimate purposes; accurate and kept up-to-date data; data retention for no longer than necessary. Are additional principles and requirements necessary for your organizations applications?

  2. When you look for new applications to meet your business needs – requirements are defined, software is evaluated, software selected, software configuration begins. But what about the data, how is this managed?

  3. How does the architect get to know from within the Designer tool that he/she needs to start the design process, once the requirements are approved and assigned a Release in the Requirements tool?

  4. Critical Vendors – How many servers do you have in use with installations of products from vendors with complex licensing requirements, and from those who conduct stringent compliance audits?

  5. In addition to national laws and regulations, such as environmental statutes, are there local laws or regulations that will affect projects and the functional requirements to implement them?

  6. Is the software and application development process based on an industry best practice and is information security included throughout the software development life cycle (SDLC) process?

  7. What are the inputs that support and enhance the design and development of RCM processes, the requirements analysis and the specification of RCM software in cloud computing environments?

  8. Has each task involved in the proposed rotation been reviewed with the Physical Job Analysis checklist to determine precise requirements and has a Job Rotation Worksheet been generated?

  9. What are your policies and procedures for maintaining development documents, including requirements, design and architecture documents, source code, binaries, and user documentation?

  10. Once functional safety requirements involve devices that are outside of the vehicle (other constituent systems of the SoS), how to ensure that these requirements will be guaranteed?


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:

  • The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the Requirements Management book in PDF containing 819 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

    The Verdict: The Complete Self-Assessment package ticks a lot of checkboxes, especially for businesses testing the waters for decision making and performance enhancement and for companies that can not have a full-time professional on payroll to guide the initial implementation of their drive.

    So far I have only had time to browse it very superficially, but form that it looks very comprehensive and at the same time practical. As soon as I find time I will do a short item on it on my literature pages and point risk management professionals in your direction. Have a great day, and all the best!!
