The Standard Requirements Self Assessment Guides are designed to help a wide range of organizations to take important steps towards understanding their current awareness and maturity in relation to the topic.

The questions help as discussion starters, but also to identify where knowledge is present in the company that can help with the process and maturity improvement.

To support you on this ongoing journey we built the guides to cover the following implementation phases:

Each Self Assessment Questionnaire follows the same structure – the 7 phases:

  • Phase 1: Recognize the value
  • Phase 2: Define what this topic means within the context of our business
  • Phase 3: Measure how we currently manage this topic
  • Phase 4: Analyze our findings
  • Phase 5: Improve the processes and implementation
  • Phase 6: Control the deliverables and results
  • Phase 7: Sustain the practices into the future

The questions relate to one of these phases so that the end result of the Self Assessment is that you can clearly see in the graphs where your strengths and weaknesses are as an organization on the journey of maturity and implementation.

You can do this assessment at regular intervals to gain more clarity on the improvements your company has implemented. It’s also a great tool to keep the momentum going and to celebrate the successes.

Where do you start?

When you first receive the Self Assessment Guide it can be a little overwhelming. That’s why we have included a sample questionnaire and pre-filled spreadsheet to give you an idea on how to approach this process.
