Start with...

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

Examples; 10 of the 932 standard requirements:

  1. New business opportunities tend to be opportunistic and very perishable (i.e., if not acted upon when the opportunity presents itself, it will be lost). This reality creates a major conflict. Do you want new business or do you want an improved system?

  2. If you are a resource, you want to know to what tasks you are assigned, and whether or not the already stated tasks are on the critical path or critical chain. How do you manage disseminating when the preceding resource will be finished with its work?

  3. Establishing a pmo at a low level means that the manager has to swim against the main stream political current of not just those in the market side of the business but all of the it work force as well. is your pmo established at the right level?

  4. As a csp undertakes to build out or take a fresh look at its service offerings, the csp should clearly define its business strategy and related risk management philosophy. what market segments or industries does the csp intend to serve?

  5. What is it that newly appointed heads do, how does that differ from what business managers do and can an alternative model of excellence be constructed that reflects, rather than restrains, your perception of effective practice?

  6. Has the team ensured that key cultural barriers (e.g., training and skills required for new jobs, entrenched culture, incompatible support structures, fear of downsizing) are addressed in its Change Management strategy?

  7. For each mandated change, summarize your organizations response from your organization Strategic Plan, and is it the opinion of organization IT leadership that the IT portion of the response is adequately funded?

  8. 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?

  9. In the same way that you profile content against business goals or user needs, you can profile it according to brand alignment. Are you emphasizing content that works against your brand positioning?

  10. Where do you see your organizations ineffective alignment and execution of business strategy and IT strategy and what factors contributed to its failure? How do you mitigate corresponding factors?
