- What to measure and why?
- What happens when a new employee joins the organization?
- Who controls the risk?
- What is an unallowable cost?
- Have all basic functions of Machine Design been defined?
- What actually has to improve and by how much?
- Are we using Machine Design to communicate information about our Cybersecurity Risk Management programs including the effectiveness of those programs to stakeholders, including boards, investors, auditors, and insurers?
- Was a pilot designed for the proposed solution(s)?
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 Machine Design projects with the 62 implementation resources:
- 62 step-by-step Machine Design Project Management Form Templates covering over 6000 Machine Design project requirements and success criteria:
Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:
- Procurement Audit: Was the tender clearly and properly specified, including evaluation criteria and knowing about the market and therefore not over-prescriptive and receptive to innovation?
- Change Management Plan: How do you know the requirements you documented are the right ones?
- Requirements Documentation: Completeness. Are all functions required by the customer included?
- Schedule Management Plan: Do Machine Design project managers participating in the Machine Design project know the Machine Design projects true status first hand?
- Work Breakdown Structure: What is the probability that the Machine Design project duration will exceed xx weeks?
- Probability and Impact Assessment: What should be the level of difficulty in handling the technology?
- Schedule Management Plan: Does the IMS reflect accurate current status and credible start/finish forecasts for all to-go tasks and milestones?
- Project Schedule: The WBS is developed as part of a Joint Planning session. But how do you know that youve done this right?
- Project Performance Report: To what degree will the team ensure that all members equitably share the work essential to the success of the team?
- Change Management Plan: Have the business unit contacts been selected and notified?

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