Facilitator: Christopher Dennis

Deciding to pursue an integrated data model and a custom web application, Focus the Nation needed to organize its ideas into a form suitable for a Request For Proposals (RFP).

Steaming Kettle facilitated a group of board members, staff, and technological service providers. In a day, Focus the Nation was able to:

  • Conceptualize the relationship between a their business process vision, project requirements, and an RFP
  • Identify use cases within their operations
  • Derive data requirements from use cases
  • Prioritize data requirements and use cases 
  • Decide which elements to include and exclude from the RFP
