The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Information systems specific requirements:
STEP 1: Get your bearings
- The latest quick edition of the Information systems 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 645 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Information systems improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 645 standard requirements:
- Have we developed a continuous monitoring strategy for the information systems (including monitoring of security control effectiveness for system-specific, hybrid, and common controls) that reflects the organizational Risk Management strategy and organizational commitment to protecting critical missions and business functions?
- Do we support the certified Cybersecurity professional and cyber-informed operations and engineering professionals with advanced problem-solving tools, communities of practice, canonical knowledge bases, and other performance support tools?
- Partial solutions can only be used if the information support is being developed for a process that has not yet been computerised. Namely, if users already use an old IT solution; will they partly use the old one and partly the new one?
- Are we using Information systems to communicate information about our Cybersecurity Risk Management programs including the effectiveness of those programs to stakeholders, including boards, investors, auditors, and insurers?
- What is the framework we use for general Cybersecurity certifications that integrate both knowledge and skill while predicting constraints of innate abilities on performance, and do we need specific certifications?
- What domains of knowledge and types of Cybersecurity-associated skills and abilities are necessary for engineers involved in operating industrial processes to achieve safe and reliable operating goals?
- Has management developed an approach for Risk Management and control based on the amount of risk that can be prudently tolerated considering the costs versus the benefits of reducing the risk?
- CRM systems consolidate customer data from multiple sources and provide analytical tools for answering questions such as: what is the value of a particular customer to the firm over his/her lifetime?
- Are we communicating about our Cybersecurity Risk Management programs including the effectiveness of those programs to stakeholders, including boards, investors, auditors, and insurers?
- What security controls are needed to adequately mitigate the risk incurred by the use of information and information systems in the execution of organizational missions and business functions?
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:

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 Information systems projects with the 62 implementation resources:
- 62 step-by-step Information systems Project Management Form Templates covering over 6000 Information systems project requirements and success criteria:
Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:
- Requirements Documentation: Have the benefits identified with the system being identified clearly?
- Human Resource Management Plan: Is current scope of the Information systems project substantially different than that originally defined?
- Activity Duration Estimates: A Information systems project manager has received activity duration estimates from his team. Which does he need in order to complete schedule development?
- Schedule Management Plan: What tools and techniques will be used to estimate activity resources?
- Human Resource Management Plan: Is there a formal process for updating the Information systems project baseline?
- Executing Process Group: What is the critical path for this Information systems project and how long is it?
- Closing Process Group: Specific – Is the objective clear in terms of what, how, when, and where the situation will be changed?
- WBS Dictionary: Are the bases and rates for allocating costs from each indirect pool consistently applied?
- Cost Estimating Worksheet: Identify the timeframe necessary to monitor progress and collect data to determine how the selected measure has changed?
- Procurement Audit: Is it tested periodically, whether the organizations way of handling tasks is competitive in relation to price and quality?

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:
- Diagnose Information systems 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 Information systems 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 Information systems investments work better.
This Information systems All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
