FST Design Principles

Keep the design simple and smart.  Design with an end-to-end business process in mind.  Ensure all potential impacts are understood (systems thinking).  Make it intuitive to a diverse set of end-users.  Increase process consistency by designing to commonalities.  Validate the need for exceptions.  Strive to meet the operational needs of stakeholder groups.  Use Workday's built-in best practices.  Leverage out of the box functionality as much as possible.  Improve insight and informed decision-making through enhanced reporting and analytics.  Reduce risk, reduce error, and increase accountability through improved internal controls.  Align and coordinate training development with design.  Ensure the documented decision-making process is followed. Unilateral decisions should not be made; elevate issues when necessary.
