The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Design for the Environment specific requirements:
STEP 1: Get your bearings
- The latest quick edition of the Design for the Environment 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 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Design for the Environment improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the standard requirements:
- Among the Design for the Environment product and service cost to be estimated, which is considered hardest to estimate?
- Is this an issue for analysis or intuition?
- Are process variation components displayed/communicated using suitable charts, graphs, plots?
- What other jobs or tasks affect the performance of the steps in the Design for the Environment process?
- Is the Design for the Environment process severely broken such that a re-design is necessary?
- What are we attempting to measure/monitor?
- Are improved process (‘should be’) maps modified based on pilot data and analysis?
- Operational – will it work?
- What is the magnitude of the improvements?
- Is Design for the Environment dependent on the successful delivery of a current project?
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:
- The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the Design for the Environment book in PDF containing requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in…

STEP 3: Implement, Track, follow up and revise strategy
The outcomes of STEP 2, the self assessment, are the inputs for STEP 3; Start and manage Design for the Environment projects with the 62 implementation resources:
- 62 step-by-step Design for the Environment Project Management Form Templates covering over 6000 Design for the Environment project requirements and success criteria:
Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:
- Formal Acceptance: Did the Design for the Environment project manager and team act in a professional and ethical manner?
- Cost Baseline: Does the suggested change request seem to represent a necessary enhancement to the product?
- Scope Management Plan: Is the organization structure for both tracking & controlling the budget well defined and assigned to a specific individual?
- Change Log: Will the Design for the Environment project fail if the change request is not executed?
- Activity Duration Estimates: What are the three main outputs of quality control?
- Schedule Management Plan: Are Design for the Environment project leaders committed to this Design for the Environment project full time?
- Lessons Learned: Was the necessary hardware, software, accommodation etc available?
- Human Resource Management Plan: Have the procedures for identifying budget variances been followed?
- Team Performance Assessment: To what degree are the members clear on what they are individually responsible for and what they are jointly responsible for?
- Project or Phase Close-Out: Is there a clear cause and effect between the activity and the lesson learned?

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any Design for the Environment project with this in-depth Design for the Environment Toolkit.
In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:
- Diagnose Design for the Environment 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 Design for the Environment 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 Design for the Environment investments work better.
This Design for the Environment All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
