Build a JEDI strategy in 10 steps
Step 1: Stakeholders
Understanding your stakeholders is essential for good project management. These stakeholders can be colleagues, team members or superiors. What is important is to make an exhaustive list of all the people that will need to be involved in your JEDI project.
Step 2: Vision and Mission
Your company will most probably have a vision and several missions posted on their website or available elsewhere. In this step, you will want to make sure that all your team members have a common understanding of the company’s (association or other works as well) mission and vision. Why? Because you will want to align the JEDI goals with your company’s goals.
Step 3: Your values
Step 4: Define JEDI
Step 5: Corporate JEDI challenges
After having defined what JEDI means together with your team, you need to build a strategy around what elements you wish to change through your JEDI strategy. The JEDI definition provides the framework for this step. This step will help you assess which concrete challenges you wish to tackle through the JEDI program you are looking to set up.
Step 6: Challenges to JEDI goals
Now that you have agreed upon the main challenges you wish to tackle, we will translate those challenges into JEDI goals using the JEDI definition you have made before. The aim of this step is to create a positive mindset around the challenges you wish to tackle by giving you and others a positive vision around what you wish to achieve.
Step 7: Stakeholders for your DEI goals
Step 8: Metrics for each goal
Step 9: Building blocks and roadblocks
The aim of this step is to ensure that each challenge is well thought through including the building blocks needed and roadblocks ahead.
Step 10: Implementation plan
You have almost all of the necessary elements together now. The only thing missing is a detailed implementation plan. By now, you should have a master document with challenges, goals, stakeholders, roadblocks and responsibilities. After this final step, you will be able to add to this list a detailed implementation plan.
