Identify Opportunities

Too often it seems like projects spark out of thin air, or it is unclear how they link to the big picture. When these things happen anxiety and rogue projects often follow.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the organization could tell you when a change was needed?

That is what the identify opportunities system is all about…

Let’s start with what I mean by “opportunities”… an opportunity is a time when something requires a change, a new way of looking at how to achieve the business goals and objectives. An opportunity could be the result of a legislation or policy update, technology update or upgrade, potential risk identified, or a value add item.

The lessons within this course will walk you through the steps to identify opportunities, the first step is to understand what is important to the senior executives, the one accountable and liable for the organization. Once you understand exactly what that is you will learn how to look at the organization through that lens, understand how to identify potential risks and areas where value could be added, with the end goal to have the organization flag when something is not healthy.

Course Information


Using a fictitious organization I will demonstrate how to:

  • Establish the senior executive’s vision and appetite for change.
  • Document the organization with a means to measure when “something” is unhealthy or in need of a change.
  • Identify patterns across the organization to uncover things like inefficiencies, reusable components and waste to name a few.

PLEASE NOTE: The lessons reference EA or Enterprise Architecture although the website has rebranded from EA to OC or Organizational Change… more information here.
