Are you looking to maximize your analytics technology investments?
By discovering and prioritizing use cases that meet your business goals, a planning roadmap can get you and your organization there.
What are the three steps to get there? I’m glad you asked.
1) Scoping and Planning
Understand your goals and relevant context within your organization. Then, think about the scope and deliverables involve.
Create a point of view and confirm agreement with the executive sponsor before proceeding.
2) Stakeholder Interviews and Use Case Definition
Gain further insight on challenges, needs, metrics and other information from stakeholders. Testing potential use cases can also help to understand concepts.
Developing a value alignments map and technical use case profiles are useful at this stage. Value alignment helps all parties involved to enable capabilities and understand value drivers.
3) Case Prioritization and Planning Roadmap
Value potential and executing ability are the two steps to build your use case prioritization on. Detailed assessment and solutioning of the next steps will aid in the planning roadmap.
A planning roadmap of the use cases will help to focus on the deep-dive business and technical areas of concern. Value and risk criteria will aid in case scoring as well.
