Part I: Overview of SPRINT experiences
This should provide brief details of project(s) participated in. Aims, outcomes, key problems encountered should be summarised including details of the role and responsibilities of the candidate, and the main techniques used. The report should conclude with a short “Personal Reflection” on the candidate’s use of SPRINT including comments on its strengths and weaknesses, and general areas where it could be enhanced. The report should be between 1500 and 2000 words long.
Clear evidence should be provided of leadership (i.e. taking the lead in investigative work, showing responsibility and initiative, handling problematic situations), innovation (developing radical and inventive re-engineering concepts), critical reflection (as above) and progression (development of SPRINT understanding, taking on more senior roles). It is difficult to prescribe the degree of experience expected, as the opportunities inevitably differ across organizations. As a rough guideline, operating as a BPR consultant on two or more phases of a single project or significant partial experience on at least two projects (of the order of a full SPRINT phase in each), would provide the minimum level of experience being looked for.
An illustrative example of a Part 1 Report is downloadable from the User Group forum. Although the candidate is fictional, the Report has been synthesised using excerpts from actual submissions, and very little of the original text has been changed. The submission is a strong one, and clearly meets the criteria of significant SPRINT experience with good evidence of leadership, innovation, reflection and progression.
