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 890 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Cost model improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 890 standard requirements:
- When we try to quantify Systems Engineering in terms of capturing productivity (i.e., size/effort) data to incorporate into a parametric model, what size measure captures the amount of intellectual work performed by the systems engineer?
- Critical to the centralized coordination of technical infrastructure is the cost model used. how can costs be managed to support compliance and good practice rather than hinder the uptake?
- For the Cost Model, can you provide an example/sample of how the various components of cost are broken out?
- Which characteristics of the Cost Model might result in a silo approach to initiating projects?
- What are the implications of this decision 10 minutes, 10 months, and 10 years from now?
- We have appropriate cost models to evaluate ROI and cost reduction strategies
- How are the cost model and its parameters determined?
- How do you improve your likelihood of success ?
- Has a production cost model been constructed?
- What are the critical parameters to watch?
Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

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 Cost model investments work better.
This Cost model All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
