  • Hi everyone, it’s very nice to see you all again. There’s a few new faces around so just to introduce myself again, I’m Andy Stewart and I’ve been working with Alex and other support team colleagues on the JISC FSD Programme as community facilitator.\n
  • In this short presentation I just wanted to highlight some of the work JISC infoNet have been tasked with in terms of producing an overarching set of guidance for the sector that highlights the work and outputs of this programme.\n
  • and to begin with it kind of felt like we were scaling Everest... you can probably imagine, just from some of the things coming out of discussions here today there’s a ton of stuff to cover.\n
  • That said, after meeting with Gill Ferrell a month or so ago we got quite excited about the challenge and by the end of the day we saw some light at the end of the tunnel.\n
  • We started out by brainstorming who the resource will actually be aimed at and needless to say there was no one or easy answer which got us thinking about entry points or if you prefer a tagging system for resources. By providing an array of entry points we’ll be able to highlight all of the useful information coming out of the programme based upon the areas on screen behind me: Programme Aims, JISC Advance Themes, Arising Benefits, Activity Areas, things around organisational efficiency and Key Issues facing the sector. This in turn would allow us to meet a range of stakeholder needs.\n
  • And although you’ll probably struggle to see some of these I just wanted to highlight some of the examples we were thinking about...\n\nRead from the image...\n
  • Our next discussion was on the structure of this resource. These things always seem a bit chicken and egg. Some people believe we can’t create a structure if we don’t know what we’ve got, some say we can’t write a resource if we don’t know what the structure is. infoNet tend to go for the later which gives us a solid foundation upon which we can build. We try to go for the perfect solution but are fully aware we may stumble across gaps that we can’t yet plug and if that’s the case we tend to add those to a wish list which we then report back to JISC.\n
  • So we came up with this, and if anyone has any suggestions on how we might improve the structure I’m all ears. This is all up for discussion and we’d be more than happy for your input.\n\nSome of these headings have a number of sub-topics too so just to give you a flavour of that under taking a holistic approach we’ll cover: what is EA; benefits of EA; getting started with EA; tools for doing EA; experiences of doing EA.\n\nUnder Costing Technology & Services we’ll be covering: traditional approaches; activity based costing; full cost maturity model; impact calculator; and experiences of cost modelling.\n\nI’m more than happy to send the full structure around if anybody is interested. I’d love to hear any feedback that you might have.\n
  • Our stumbling block was a name for the infoKit and we’re thinking that this won’t be titled FSD but something along the lines of improving organisational agility. The screen highlights a number of iterations Gill and I went through on our brainstorming day so again if anyone has any amazing ideas please let us know. As it stands we’re thinking that getting on and writing the resource will inspire us to think of a name.\n
  • The next steps essentially are that we’ll be locking Gill away in a secret location to actually get on and produce a first draft which will be complete in conjunction with all of the project case studies in late July. This will give us a chance to review everything together and think through where we can highlight specific examples from across the programme.\n\nWe’ll then produce a final draft before putting it out for review around about August. If anyone is interested in taking part in that review please let me know at some point today and I’ll be sure to keep you up-to-date.\n
  • We’ll gather all that feedback in, make any relevant amendments ready to coincide the launch with UCISA CISG in November.\n\nSo just to reiterate, we’ll have the first draft ready in July, The final draft will go out for review in August time with a view to coincide our launch with UCISA CISG.\n\nSomething I forgot to make explicit in this presentation is that JISC infoNet will take on and maintain all of the outputs from this programme, so for example we have the ...just enough resources from the Enterprise Architecture Practice Group, the work that Paul is doing on FEAST and much more.\n\nThat’s pretty much it to be honest, open for comments\n
