  16. 16. BENEFITS OF THIS COLLABORATIVEEFFORT• Reducing costs and/or cost avoidance• Reduced time to delivery (working in parallel)• Source of stimulation and creativity (agility)• Higher quality (decisions, work product)• Enables/leverages specialization• Transfer of knowledge or skills (provides a participant network)• Enhanced value and capabilities (takes advantage of economies of scale)16
  17. 17. CHALLENGES• Dependence upon volunteers• Requires buy-in of technical and functional staff• Executive understanding of BI• Vendor misunderstanding17
  18. 18. NEXT STEPS• Consultancy support• Tutorial on the KPIs• Dashboards• Re-brand “BI” to?• Additional partners?19
