How do you evaluate you process? It is effective and efficient. George Dinwiddie has created a process evaluation kit:

  • How long does it take an idea to be realized and deployed? A year? A month? A week?
  • What keeps it from being shorter? Budget cycles? Serial processes? Too much work? Bottlenecks?
  • How do you tell that you’re working on today’s highest priority items?
  • How do you verify that the systems you’re developing are solving the intended problem? How quickly do you know?
  • How do you measure progress of system development? Is this a measure of something you actually want, or is it a surrogate measure? Is it a reliable progress indicator or does it hide surprises?
