Map necessary changes for different potential solutions
Once you’re satisfied with your organisation’s ability to absorb and adopt a new solution, your next task should be to assess how well the solution fits the design criteria you created in the Recognition stage. You may even want to compare different solutions that you’ve found in order to assess which is the best fit.
Using your design criteria, you can first create a checklist to help you assess the fit of a solution to the criteria. You will also need to take a view on the maturity of your found solution(s). If a solution is technology based, you can use the Technology Readiness Scale to inform your decisions. For non-technology-based solutions, you will need to assess the evidence base.
Next you will have to assess how adaptable the core components of any other potential solutions are in order to see whether they have the potential to provide a better fit. Finally, you can use the Decision Matrix to compare a shortlist of solutions and identify the best fit.
