  25. 25. Rapid Innovation and Open Innovation <ul><li>“ These are Rapid Innovation projects. The benefits of this approach are described in “Why Rapid Innovation?”2 In keeping with the size of the grants and short duration of the projects, the bidding process is lightweight (see the Bid Form) and the reporting process will be blog-based “ </li></ul><ul><li>What does this mean for you? </li></ul>4
  26. 26. Rapid Innovation and Open Innovation <ul><li>“ Central to the success of the rapid innovation model is the idea that constraints can be liberating. Because of the strict limits on their resources, developers find themselves adapting and building on existing technology and ideas, instead of feeling obliged to reinvent the wheel with each new functionality. After all, two or three developers working for just a few months don’t have time to consider every type of user and every possible user situation” </li></ul><ul><li>http://ie-repository.jisc.ac.uk/451/1/OBC.pdf </li></ul><ul><li>be realistic in your time and costs </li></ul><ul><li>use what already exists </li></ul>
  27. 27. Rapid Innovation and Open Innovation <ul><li>“ The JISC Rapid Innovation (JISCRI) programme helps to kick-start the process, guide the projects as they develop, and communicate their progress to the rest of the sector. As the central point of contact for all projects, JISC’s role is to see which projects are working well, and to share the successes and failures. This supports learning across the sector and helps avoid any possible duplication of effort, and it also encourages knowledge sharing between project teams.” </li></ul><ul><li>http://ie-repository.jisc.ac.uk/451/1/OBC.pdf </li></ul><ul><li>“ fail often, fail first, fail fast” </li></ul><ul><li>learn openly, learn together, learn fast </li></ul>
  28. 28. The Blogging Requirement <ul><li>“ 46. Because of the nature of these projects, the primary reporting mechanism will be blog posts” </li></ul><ul><li>Minimum blog posts required </li></ul><ul><li>Project plan </li></ul><ul><li>Use case documentation </li></ul><ul><li>Project in a nutshell post: 140char description, paragraph description, image </li></ul><ul><li>At least 2 interim updates </li></ul><ul><li>Lessons learnt post </li></ul><ul><li>List of outputs </li></ul><ul><li>Descriptive post per output </li></ul><ul><li>Reflections </li></ul><ul><li>2 minute video describing your output </li></ul><ul><li>The outputs themselves </li></ul>46 Recommended: http://www.slideshare.net/lisbk/blogging-practices-to-support-project-work

  30. 30. Use Case Requirement <ul><li>24. Bidders should note the requirement detailed in the Bid Form to produce a Use Case to accompany the proposal. These use cases must be made available as Creative Commons BY SA. Please see examples of Use Cases” </li></ul><ul><li>Please see blog post with additional guidance: </li></ul><ul><li>http://infteam.jiscinvolve.org/wp/2011/12/07/oerri_usecases/ </li></ul><ul><li>There is no suggested template. Just tell us clearly: </li></ul><ul><li>What is it that users want to be able to do and currently can’t? </li></ul><ul><li>What will you change to make it possible for them to do it? </li></ul><ul><li>How will you know if you have succeeded? </li></ul><ul><li>This is NOT a job to be done AFTER you have written your proposal : this is a key task in scoping your project </li></ul>24
  31. 31. Use Case Requirement <ul><li>The use case should be made available as Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) . This is to ensure that the thinking done by bidders does not go to waste. It is possible that bidders may identify a crucial use case but not have the technical or skills requirements to solve it. I therefore want to be able to share the use cases and make them available to others who may be able to create the technical solutions. Digital infrastructure for open content is global and distributed, there are experts all around the world that we could collaborate on solutions with. </li></ul><ul><li>(from the supplementary blog post) </li></ul>24

  33. 33. Evaluation Criteria <ul><li>EVALUATION CRITERIA (and weighting): </li></ul><ul><li>Extent to which bid meets the scope of the Call </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(Strong / Weak / Out of Scope) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Value for money (10%) </li></ul><ul><li>Robust project plan (30%) </li></ul><ul><li>Clear and compelling use case (20%) </li></ul><ul><li>Potential benefits/impact (20%) </li></ul><ul><li>Engagement with users and stakeholders (10%) </li></ul><ul><li>Risk assessment (10%) </li></ul>54
  34. 34. Guidance on Bidding <ul><li>Checklist at paragraph 100 </li></ul><ul><li>and ... </li></ul><ul><li>State your objectives very clearly and concisely. Don’t just describe the problem, show us what you’re going to do about it. Map what you want to do against the requirements of the bid. </li></ul><ul><li>Include the Use Case. </li></ul><ul><li>Make an honest assessment of the risks around the project. We find bids can underestimate risks and challenges. For example: If you need more technical expertise or senior management buy-in, show us you recognise that. Provide an initial project plan, think about how it will run. Make sure your costings are clear. Name all the staff who will be involved. </li></ul>100
  35. 35. Guidance on Bidding <ul><li>Think about sustainability: where will you be when the project ends, what will have changed because of your project. What will the value of the project be? What will have been achieved and how will you know you have got there? </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t wait until the end to “engage users and stakeholders”. Identify names and channels. Build them in to your plan. Think about how you are going to share and disseminate your work through the year (note blogging requirement). </li></ul><ul><li>Line up someone who will have a fresh read through the proposal a few days before, they may notice things that you have not made clear or that are confusing. </li></ul><ul><li>Submit it by the deadline! </li></ul>
  36. 36. Bid Form aka Bid Cover Sheet <ul><li>Outline Project Description </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Max 500 words </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Use Case </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Max 1 page / 500 words, diagrams welcome </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>attached or as a URL.
