The Gap Analysis Matrix assists in business projects that are in the process of being completed, but do not yet possess all of the necessary information and data. By determining what data/information is already collected and what needs to be found, the project will be easier to organize and finish, assuring that no essential content is missing. This essential content is held in something called the EDW – enterprise data warehouse. By idetifying what we already know, it becomes easier to identify which pieces of information are missing.

GAP ANALYSIS MATRIX TEMPLATE
If you have a career in business, it is possible that you will eventually asked to manage a project that requires a large amount of data, general information, and knowledge about the business itself. The Gap Analysis Matrix helps identify the business concepts, techniques, or guidelines that you may need to become familiar with in order to successfully complete the project. It also determines what data is missing from the materials needed for the project. There are two categories into which the Gap matrix divides: Business information and EDW data. EDW stands for “enterprise data warehouse”, which is a system that holds data from various sources. By listing what you already know, it will then be easier to discover the missing information. Further organizing this information into categories, then deciding to learn the concepts and collect the data needed, will assure that any work done for your project goes smoothly.
