DAY 2 & 3: KPIs for Success: Problem Solving and Impact Analysis

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). The two critical components of a great concept or solution proposal are (1) a well-articulated problem that’s important to solve, and (2) a valuable solution that will provide compelling benefits to its audience and to the business. However, it’s not enough to simply state those two components when pitching a proposal or creating a business case — they must be substantiated through effective business analysis.

Outcome:

  • Analyze, define, size and justify the importance of solving (or ignoring) a particular problem
  • Identify considerations for analyzing and sizing a potential business solution or opportunity, including important stakeholder characteristics and an effective comparison of the potential solution to the problem size
  • Develop a sound solution position statement that clearly describes intended business value and outcomes designed for success
  • Define Key Performance Indicators, measures and requirements for solution success and benefit
    delivery; describe how this information supports effective program design, project scoping and planning
    to maximize benefits delivery
  • Identify potential risks to achieving critical solution results, describe the different risk responses and
    planning strategies, such as mitigation and contingency plans, and identify key considerations for
    ensuring solution success.

Intended Audience

Analysts, designers, and software developers, and other practitioners, who desire an understanding of object-oriented analysis and design concepts and hands-on practical experience applying the techniques within a use-case-driven, architecture-centric, and iterative development process.
