Further to section 2.6, with reference to performing analysis and risk categorisation as part of your strategic process, you can look at other forms of analysis to help determine your work and subsequent proposals. You could look at performing a: Scenario analysis the best, worst and most likely scenarios involved Cohort analysis how your audience interact with your product, program, process or product over a period of time Correlation analysis to determine other relationships to your product, program, process or product and how these can be maximised. Pacing analysis looking at the progress you make against the goals. CATWOE analysis As developed by Peter Checkland, this simple acronym can help you approach analysis from the different perspectives that individuals may have on a situation. This can be performed by each stakeholder, or from the perspective of the different stakeholders to determine potential impacts. It is useful for looking at existing systems and processes that are already in place which may need analysing for improvement or change.
