  • 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 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 Software Development Cycle improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 999 standard requirements:

  1. Is Software Development Cycle required?

  2. Are your goals realistic? Do you need to redefine your problem? Perhaps the problem has changed or maybe you have reached your goal and need to set a new one?

  3. In the case of a Software Development Cycle project, the criteria for the audit derive from implementation objectives, an audit of a Software Development Cycle project involves assessing whether the recommendations outlined for implementation have been met, can you track that any Software Development Cycle project is implemented as planned, and is it working?

  4. How does the team improve its work?

  5. Record-keeping requirements flow from the records needed as inputs, outputs, controls and for transformation of a Software Development Cycle process, are the records needed as inputs to the Software Development Cycle process available?

  6. Who do you report Software Development Cycle results to?

  7. What process should you select for improvement?

  8. How will you know that the Software Development Cycle project has been successful?

  9. What is the complexity of the output produced?

  10. Is the final output clearly identified?

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:
