SPARK Method

Right Task, Right Worker, Right Time

Over time, through our experience with implementing projects using Lean and Agile approaches, as well as leveraging IBM’s Project to Program Redbook, and other resources, we have documented in IBM BlueWorks Live a full Digital Business Automation (DBA) Lifecycle Methodology. This includes everything from conducting an initial two to three-day workshop with the process owners to determine fit and scope for DBA, to capturing Performance Indicators, to which processes in your process inventory are right for DBA, to the very details of what happens in every iteration of building a DBA Solution. This allows you to get the right task, to the right worker, at the right time so you can achieve flawless delivery.

There is great substance behind the methodology process diagrams. As much as possible, we have put the cumulative experience of over 600 projects, as well as our extensive research, into the details behind each activity in our methodology. The example seen here is from our proprietary North Star approach, which sets the foundation for measuring your process, and knowing when you have accomplished what you set out to accomplish.
