Presenter: Gary DeGregorio, Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff
Science Advisory Board Associate, Motorola, Inc.
A group of leading companies have banded together to define international standards of excellence for Enterprise Strategic Decision Management (IEEE P1694 ESDM). Currently enterprises of all sizes have no common framework from which to manage all the decisions across the organization and/or its roles. This makes it extremely difficult to understand how any one decision sits in context with other decisions and to manage the consequences of all the decisions across the enterprise and over time.
This decision framework provides a common language and information structure to enable true collaboration across the diverse roles (strategy, market planning, portfolio management, program management, engineering ...) existing in most companies. It also introduces a new requirements traceability paradigm which more clearly answers the age-old questions "Where do requirements come from?" and "How can we better manage requirements change?" Software tools have been created to assist individuals and teams in the use of the ESDM decision framework. C-SPIN members will be informed on how to join the IEEE P1694 Working Group, if interested.
