- 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 693 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Utilization improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 693 standard requirements:
- Review the utilization of the project managers and the quality of the projects on which they work. Are the project managers working on the right projects in the order the customers need?
- Monitoring network performance under constraints, for e.g., once the network utilization has crossed a threshold, how does a particular class of traffic behave?
- Which cloud Service Management process monitors and reports on allocation and utilization of resources by consumers in order to generate a chargeback report?
- Does your facility place limitations on employment, utilization or promotion of pregnant female workers (apart from restrictions related to their health and safety)?
- Can you run a comparative space utilization report of actual assignments against standard by floor, building, organization, entire portfolio, etc.?
- Pre-allocation of nodes reduces wait time for resources but it may reduce CPU utilization and efficiency. What level of efficiency is important?
- We ensure that the performance or utilization of a component or system is within a specified range (e.g. disk space or memory utilization)
- Can we achieve even more efficient utilization of software and hardware within mission systems and IT infrastructure investments?
- What are the particular statistics about workloads, task events and resource utilization, with respect to all applications?
- Should the highest priority be placed on reporting quality, utilization, cost or other data (e.g., user experience)?

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 Utilization investments work better.
This Utilization All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
