Featuring new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Design for the Environment improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the standard requirements:
- How did the team generate the list of possible solutions?
- What are the types and number of measures to use?
- Were Pareto charts (or similar) used to portray the ‘heavy hitters’ (or key sources of variation)?
- Who are the Design for the Environment improvement team members, including Management Leads and Coaches?
- If you had to rebuild your organization without any traditional competitive advantages (i.e., no killer a technology, promising research, innovative product/service delivery model, etc.), how would your people have to approach their work and collaborate together in order to create the necessary conditions for success?
- What are measures?
- Were lessons learned captured and communicated?
- How do the Design for the Environment results compare with the performance of your competitors and other organizations with similar offerings?
- What are the success criteria that will indicate that Design for the Environment objectives have been met and the benefits delivered?
- Is Design for the Environment Required?

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 Design for the Environment investments work better.
This Design for the Environment All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
