Examples; 10 of the 999 standard requirements:

  1. Does the change management team have a role in the design of the solution and under what circumstances would the change management team make suggestions to influence the solution design?

  2. What are the largest challenges architects and designers face when leveraging innovations in technology into practice and what are the best solutions for incorporating new technologies?

  3. Have all the potential impacts of an Alternative Solution to other parts of the Acceptable Solutions, thereby demonstrating a holistic approach, been considered by the designer?

  4. What difficulties have been encountered in offering customer solutions, particularly in the implementation of technology applications in front-office areas as sales and design?

  5. Are there sufficient and clearly articulated mechanisms for connecting individuals and the work of everyone who contributes to the particular organizational role or function?

  6. How do you balance the need for greater economic opportunity, lower consumer costs, and system reliability with power market design constraints and environmental concerns?

  7. Has an initial allocation of Mission System requirements to subsystems been performed to assess the convergence of initial design concepts to a range of viable solutions?

  8. How do other organizations assemble teams that excel at project execution and technical design, and drive solution adoption, organizational training and communication?

  9. Is the data analytics solution designed specifically for process manufacturing, and can it handle time-series data and solve intricate process manufacturing problems?

  10. Is the enterprise private PaaS able to integrate with all existing solutions equally or is it better integrated with one vendor by design rather than another vendor?

Results

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Solution Design projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Solution Design investments work better.

This Solution Design All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
