9 Decision Support Checklist
The concept of a maturity assessment model in the initial version of this Framework was not perceived as helpful for organisations in incorporating the principles into their day to day decision-making. However, the concept of a checklist or template to support organisations to do this was viewed by stakeholders as a more helpful proposition. The Improvement Service has created an Assurance Matrix and Compliance Checklist both of which are work in progress to support its business case approval process. More details are provided at Annex E - Assurance Matrix and Compliance Checklist and is proposed as an example of how the principles of this Framework can be incorporated into an organisation's existing processes that may be useful for other organisations to adapt for their own use.
