STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which competency center improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the standard requirements:
- In many cases the BICC can support its own funding through the cost savings realized by eliminating redundant tools or reducing the overhead of expensive support and maintenance contracts. As the BICC becomes more strategic, it becomes more difficult to quantify its intrinsic value. How can you measure better decision making?
- Almost every data warehouse project has the same objective: one version of the truth. however, what is data integration worth if there are still many ways most of which are flawed to interpret the data?
- Consideration for forming a BICC is driven by a need and urgency for change, specifically around the ability to meet business demand for better decisions using BI technology. Who is feeling the pain?
- Have you had problems with heterogeneous data, bad data, lack of storage capacity, unanticipated financial/time costs, inadequate cooperation from data owners or lack of data management expertise?
- Do we measure the responsiveness and quality provided to our stakeholders. Have commitments been met, software deployed, response times honored, processes documented, training completed?
- How can the director of business process shared services make and sustain appropriate trade-offs between process standardization and variation to optimize both cost and innovation?
- Should data be modeled and standardized across Enterprise systems such as data sources, applications, EDW and Data Marts so that data and information exchanges are consistent?
- If you could revise the agencies policy on technology and data sharing/quality i.e., strategic plans, adoption, development what would you change and what would you keep?
- Do we want a BICC that is permanent with a physical team, or is it better to have a virtual team that includes employees in several business units and IT organizations?
- Is there a CIO or someone similar, responsible for strategic planning, implementation, and management of integrated systems identified by the IT infrastructure plan?
