The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Waterfall model specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Waterfall model 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 876 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Waterfall model improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 876 standard requirements:

  1. When you are identifying the potential technical strategy(s) you have several process factors that you should address. As with initial scoping how much detail you go into when documenting the architecture, the views that you create, and your approach to modeling are important considerations. Furthermore, will you be considering one or more candidate architectures and what is your overall delivery strategy?

  2. As corporate ventures usually go to new business areas and work with new technologies, they are most likely unable to utilise existing commercial or parent corporations in-house development methods. Could Agile Manifesto and agile methods be a good starting point for the corporate venture to start their development effort towards their own, efficient agile in-house software development method?

  3. Management buy-in is a concern. Many program managers are worried that upper-level management would ask for progress reports and productivity metrics that would be hard to gather in an Agile work environment. Management ignorance of Agile methodologies is also a worry. Will Agile advantages be able to overcome the well-known existing problems in software development?

  4. With this new, full-stack approach to software delivery comes new opportunity for delay. DevOps was developed as a reaction to the long lead times required for infrastructure provisioning and integration with bureaucracy-laden ITIL processes. But what are these new sources of delay in the software development lifecycle?

  5. Much of the agile advice is oriented towards small teams of up to ten people, who are either co-located or near located, who have ready access to their primary stakeholders, and who are working on software that can be easily organized into a series of small releases. What about large teams?

  6. The sprint backlog is the list of work the team must address during the next sprint. The list is derived by selecting stories/features from the top of the product backlog until the team feels they have enough work to fill the sprint. Is this done by the team asking, Can we also do this?

  7. What is the difference, if any, in customer satisfaction between the use and results of agile-driven software development methods and the use and results of plan-driven software development software development methods?

  8. To put your organization on the path to DevOps, you need a clear understanding of your current practices for development and operations. Do your development processes use agile or waterfall methodologies, or both?

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

  10. How do you take a methodology, like agile development, that basically evolved in small groups and then scale it up so that it works on projects with hundreds of developers and thousands of users?

  • 62 step-by-step Waterfall model Project Management Form Templates covering over 1500 Waterfall model project requirements and success criteria:

Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:

  1. Lessons Learned: How much of your time was spent on other than this Waterfall model project?

  2. Procurement Management Plan: Is Waterfall model project status reviewed with the steering and executive teams at appropriate intervals?

  3. Executing Process Group: How can you use Microsoft Waterfall model project and Excel to assist in Waterfall model project risk management?

  4. Probability and Impact Assessment: How will economic events and trends likely affect the Waterfall model project?

  5. Risk Audit: Does the customer have a solid idea of what is required?

  6. Procurement Audit: Are procurement policies and practices in line with (international) good practice standards?

  7. Human Resource Management Plan: Quality of people required to meet the forecast needs of the department?

Results

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any Waterfall model project with this in-depth Waterfall model Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Waterfall model projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Waterfall model and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

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 Waterfall model investments work better.

This Waterfall model All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
