QSB is essentially a project coordination vehicle. Which means that most project activities will be performed not by QSB personnel, but by the relevant organizations (businesses, government entities, NGO/non-profits, etc.) and individuals (Germans and sincere friends of Germany from other nations).
Every quantum leap project will go through the following five stages:
- Data mining (knowledge mining, to be more precise). A comprehensive search of the Internet (Web pages and databases) for ideas on the most efficient execution of the project in question (achieving its ultimate objective). As well as for developing a comprehensive and reasonably detailed description of the current situation (AS IS) in the subject area in question
- Brainstorm. Classic generation of ideas on the most efficient execution of the project in question (achieving its ultimate objective). The brainstorm will be conducted using the two-pronged strategy: soliciting ideas (a) from recognized experts in the area in question by direct contact via e-mail or on the phone/Skype; and (b) from the general public via project Web site, social network pages, etc.
- Vision. Using brainstorm-generated ideas as a starting point, the QSB core project team will develop a comprehensive and reasonably detailed vision of TO BE (what the result of project implementation will look like)
- Planning. Using the generated vision and the AS IS description (and the feedback from experts and the general public), the QSB core project team will develop a comprehensive and reasonably detailed financial and operational plans (with the appropriate textual comments) for a quantum leap in the area in question
- Formation of a comprehensive project execution team which will include both QSB core project team members, officers of relevant organizations (businesses, government entities, NGO/non-profits, etc.) and individuals (German citizens and friends of Germany from other nations).
- Execution. Actual execution of the project – making a quantum leap in the area in question. If necessary, financial and operational plans (but not the objectives!) might be changed if warranted by changes in the environment or by feedback from experts and/or general public
- Improvement. There is always a room for improvement. Hence, planning and execution of every QSfD project will include development and deployment of a continuous improvement system (the proverbial ‘kaizen’) for each subject area
- Reengineering. It is very much possible that at some point changes in the environment and/or feedback received from experts and/or general public will make it both possible and necessary to make another quantum leap in the subject area in question
Therefore, each QSfD project is rather a continuous process than a one-time project.
