Best Practices In Some Contexts …

… Might not be Best Practices in Your Context!


Your goal in assessing Best Practices is to determine which might be the best initial fit – and that will take the least customizing/ adaptation.

Understand your Process & Practice “deliverables” and their Stakeholder Requirements – BEFORE you assess any Best Practice for their potential.


Then address the right adaptations – to the Best Practice process you have borrowed – and adopt what you can – and adapt the rest – including the connect to and/or adaptation of all of the other processes of the Enterprise that you’ll need to also improve.


Determining what to adopt and what to adapt – will take a little analysis.

It’s complex. It’s a system.

These are some of my models for doing that. There are many more. To take the analysis deeper and/or broader.

Yours models may vary.
