Examples; 10 of the standard requirements:

- Will Understanding SOA have an impact on current business continuity, disaster recovery processes and/or infrastructure?
- What successful thing are we doing today that may be blinding us to new growth opportunities?
- How do you select, collect, align, and integrate Understanding SOA data and information for tracking daily operations and overall organizational performance, including progress relative to strategic objectives and action plans?
- Do we all define Understanding SOA in the same way?
- What other systems, operations, processes, and infrastructures (hiring practices, staffing, training, incentives/rewards, metrics/dashboards/scorecards, etc.) need updates, additions, changes, or deletions in order to facilitate knowledge transfer and improvements?
- What do we stand for–and what are we against?
- Is the improvement team aware of the different versions of a process: what they think it is vs. what it actually is vs. what it should be vs. what it could be?
- Who will be responsible for making the decisions to include or exclude requested changes once Understanding SOA is underway?
- Implementation Planning- is a pilot needed to test the changes before a full roll out occurs?
