How to measure litmus test and justify the feasibility quadrant

Post  yugicm on Fri Jul 23, 2010 8:53 am

Hi,

i just learn about business dimensional lifecycle. i have a very early question regarding on this method.
1. On the first stage, which is the project planning, one of the method is with litmus test, what i would like to know is how do we get the final score of the test. i just know the weight of each factor (60%, 15%, 5%, 5%, 15%), but don't know to calculate and how much is the minimum score in order to past the litmus test.
2. On the second stage, which is the business requirement definition, there's an analysis method to determine the requirement, that's the feasibility quadrant method. what i would like to know is, how am i determine an organization is really need data warehouse that have high business impact and high feasibility, is there any method? like swot method.

thank you for your attention.

best regards

rizal

does anyone implement the business dimensional lifecycle? cos i think my question is the most important step in order to start the datawarehouse project.

Hi, Rizal,

These percentages represent how often each factor is typically a problem and won't really figure in scoring a particular organization. In other words, 6 out of 10 warehouse projects that run into trouble do so because they didn't build the business sponsorship relationships they needed.

I did create a spreadsheet a few years ago that allows you to score your company on several related factors and get a sense for whether you were headed for trouble or not. I'll try and dig it up and post a link to it.

The prioritization grid is meant to help identify need. First, you must talk to the business people and identify several major opportunities that would be enabled by information (the requirements interviews). Then you work with senior management to place these opportunities on the prioritization grid where one axis is the business value of the opportunity and the other is the feasibility (how easy it is to do).

All those opportunities with high business value that are relatively easy to do are the ones worth doing. If you don't have any opportunities in this category (the upper right quadrant), it may not be worth building a data warehouse. Does this make sense
