What are the differences between improving the design (and operation) of an aircraft engine, a muscle car, a large enterprise, and/or an integrated commercial global cloud services platform …all running at hyperscale?

Question: What are the differences between improving the design (and operation) of:

  • an aircraft engine,
  • a muscle car,
  • a large enterprise, and/or
  • an integrated commercial global cloud services platform
  • …all running at hyperscale?

Answer: None.

Scroll down to see the use cases; then the list of resources at the bottom of this article.

Use Case 1: Aircraft engine, and
Use Case 2: 
Muscle car

Continuous Transformation 2

Use Case 3: Large enterprise operating at hyperscale, and
Use Case 4: 
Integrated commercial global cloud services platform operating at hyperscale

Structuring Small Powerful Documents

For the past couple weeks now, I’ve been on the left coast visit with friends and colleagues and having an extraordinary time. Often, the conversation returns to what is the best way to convince someone or some group to do this or that.  Here’s some ideas and templates to consider based on my past experiences:

  • Notes from the Field
  • Product Planning Cycles
  • Project Business Charter
  • Preliminary Vision and Scope Document
  • Jeff Bezzo’s Amazon 6-Pager

Notes from the Field

Parts

  • Introduction
  • Scenario
  • Problem
  • Analysis
  • Options
  • Solution
  • [Preliminary] Results
  • Summary

Sample Templates

Product Planning Circles

Sample Templates

Project Business Charter

Parts

  • Business Project Description
  • Deliverables
  • Project Scope / Boundaries / Assumptions
  • Project Accountability
  • Stakeholders
  • Project Execution Risks Summary and Mitigation Options
  • Project Cost Estimate
  • Links to Supporting Documentation

Sample Templates

Preliminary Vision and Scope Document
Also known as an Engagement Transition Document

Parts

  • OVERVIEW
  • PROBLEM STATEMENT
  • BUSINESS OBJECTIVES
  • EXISTING ENVIRONMENT
  • USER PROFILES
  • SOLUTION VISION
  • PROJECT SCOPE
  • CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTORS
  • IMPORTANT DATES
  • OTHER ASSUMPTIONS AND CONSTRAINTS

Sample Templates

Jeff Bezo’s Amazon 6-Pager

Parts

[The six-page narratives are structured] like a dissertation defense:

  1. The context or question.
  2. Approaches to answer the question – by whom, by which method, and their conclusions
  3. How is your attempt at answering the question different or the same from previous approaches
  4. Now what? – that is, what’s in it for the customer, the company, and how does the answer to the question enable innovation on behalf of the customer?

(via Amazon: How are the 6 page “narratives” structured in Jeff Bezos S-Team meetings? – Quora)

Sample Templates

  • None available (yet)
