PODICCRASQ

When performing an audit I’m collecting the requirements (Current State / Future State) from several views:

– human aspect

– expectations from the board

– feasibilities from the staff, availabilities (example competencies, financials, financial ruling …)

I’ve put together these aspects under the umbrella of an acronym:  PODICRASQ

PODICRASQ is an acronym and stands for:

  • Processes
  • Organisation
  • Databases & Information exchange
  • Infstructure
  • Conformity & Culture
  • Cost
  • Risks
  • Applications – Architecture
  • Services
  • Quality

PROCESS

describes HOW we will perform some ACTIVITIES to deliver a PRODUCT

ORGANISATION

describes WHO will be the ACTORS in the PROCESS LIFE CYCLE, what kind of ROLE the ACTORS have to perform

DATA & INFORMATION EXCHANGE

describes the DATABASES, the DATAFLUX, the FORMATS of the interfaces (receiving, processing, output)

INFRASTRUCTURE

describes the needed tools (i.e. if IT oriented then the infrastructure addresses the server – client – topology)

CONFORMITY & CULTURE

describes the frameworks to fit with the house rules

COST

describes the real cost of all process activities

RISKS

describes all risks encountered when executing

APPLICATIONS

describes the infrastructure needed to run the business in terms of Hardware / Software solutions

SERVICES

describes KPI’s

QUALITY

describes the metrics

 

People, Process and Technology initiatives of an organisation more closely with its business strategy and vision to support and help innovate new business strategies and meet long term objectives.

In the analysis we do not forget to picture the wanted deliverables (example the process must generate an order, an invoice, manage bill of lading …)
