How to guide action and shape outcomes

Welcome aboard! As a Decision Maker for an Improvement Idea, you ensure that the right bases are covered in the business case, and determine whether to approve the Idea for implementation.

AGREED streamlines your path to making decisions based on verified numbers and documented stakeholder input.

I. DRAFT Phase: Review the business case draft and identify any gaps

On the AGREED My Ideas page

Step 1: Select the Idea Card to open the Idea Workspace.

Step 2: Select the Value tab to review the list of Value Items.

  • Select any/each subtab Personnel/Non-personnel/Revenues to review Value Items in each category. Consider if additional ValueI Items should be included.

  • If desired, select the gray dots at the end of each row to see any notes and documentation provided by the validator.

Step 3: Select the Risk tab to review Stakeholder risk ratings and comments.

  • Consider if additional individuals should be invited as Stakeholders.

  • If desired, select the gray dots at the far right of each row to see any additional details and input from the Stakeholder.

  • Identify any gaps in the business case draft

Step 4: Select the Agreements tab. You’ll see yourself listed as a Decision Maker.

  • In the row with your name, 

Select the circle in the column titled DRAFT.

  • Select Agreed if all necessary Value Items and Stakeholders are included in the current draft of the business case.

  • Select Revise if additional Value Items and/or Stakeholders need to be included in the business case.

  • Select Reject if the Idea does not merit further development at this time.

If you select Revise or Reject:
