STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 722 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Acceptance Criteria improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 722 standard requirements:
- System Acceptance: Are acceptance criteria for new information systems, upgrades and new versions established and suitable system tests carried out during development and prior to acceptance?
- Has an information security risk assessment process that establishes the criteria for performing information security risk assessments, including risk acceptance criteria been defined?
- Was the original TORFP (Task Order Request for Proposals) structured to link invoice payments to distinct deliverables with specific acceptance criteria?
- What should I consider in selecting the most resource-effective data collection design that will satisfy all of my performance or acceptance criteria?
- Does the supplier have the necessary gauges and measuring devices to permit reliable inspections to meet the procedural acceptance criteria?
- Have you identified the product acceptance criteria that you will need to use in order to decide whether or not products meet requirements?
- If penetration testing is performed after acceptance testing and security flaws are found, is the vendor obligated to fix the flaws?
- A sprint is time-boxed. Acceptance testing is very difficult to time-box. What if time runs out and you still have a critical bug?
- What should I do if none of my candidate designs will generate data that satisfy my performance or acceptance criteria?
- How do you identify the information basis for later specification of performance or acceptance criteria?

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?’
