The weakest link
Two observations from 30 years of service points out the weakest link in the value chain that creates business based on new products or solutions.
1. While the industry has excelled fantastic in advanced technical engineering, the engineering of the expectations to the solution has hardly developed at all!
2. While the industry has clearly recognized “poor requirements” as being the main source of problems, there is still no coherent training available!
Establishing the correct expectations to the solutions is surprisingly difficult and most quality costs can be traced to this. It takes a company trained in expectations engineering to get it right.
Besides the experience minimizing the effort required to successfully implementing improvement projects, the activities are based on the results from the ImprovAbility(TM) research project, now the foundation of ISO33014.
“Whitebox Expectations” establish a new profession to strengthen the weakest link in the value chain from idea to product. An Expectation Engineer’s responsibility is to ensure the best possible input to the technical engineers.
“Whitebox Expectations” is meta training, because there is no one best practice that always works. There are many great practices that sometimes work. “Whitebox Expectations” teach the team to choose the right practice – for them .
“Whitebox Expectations” is holistic, because it combines the requirements engineering, the risk management and the testing disciplines around the central objects: The Expectations to the solution.
