Resource Life-Cycle Framework


This is a basic approach for developing a model of the enterprise. Participants define the resources used or managed in their company and the life cycle for each resource.

Why and When?

Use this approach to replace traditional enterprise and information strategy planning. Replace traditional Information Engineering business area identification with resource life cycle analysis. Using this approach enables definition of both data and process projects – data projects are broad in scope enabling integration while process project are narrow in scope enabling delivery of a process or system design. Resource Life Cycle Analysis, by Ronald Ross (see Bibliography), is the basis of this approach. This should be the first approach for any data warehouse effort – it defines the structure for subject areas.


Annotated agendas are intended for use by the facilitator and can extend up to twenty pages and larger.  They provide a play script of the context that needs to managed, typically in a partial day, full day, or multiple day workshop environment.  They stipulate in great detail the Purpose of each agenda step, the Questions to be addressed during each step, and the need place for multi-media support including movie files, PowerPoint slides, and large Post-It notes.  Each agenda step provides an estimated timeframe, summary statements, and additional notes.  MOST IMPORTANTLY each agenda step comes with a highly detailed method—HOW TO facilitate the deliverable with an emphasis on the analysis tool and HOW TO take lists and converge them into documents and consensually agreed upon findings, outputs, and actions.
