Policy Compass-Project presentation: Cambridgeshire County Council Pilot status 10 March 2015

Policy Compass tested in the Adult Learning & Skills policy making process
First round of testing with colleagues in the CCC completed and feedback given
Everyone struggled but those with open data/IT background struggled less
It was not intuitive – real world communities will struggle
Manual/help pages need to be more visual with worked examples
Terminology will be alien to community user groups

We can see the potential and there is a desire amongst user test group to be able to interrogate policy making

  2. 2. Pilot Overview – main thoughts •Policy Compass tested in the Adult Learning & Skills policy making process • First round of testing with colleagues in the CCC completed and feedback given • Everyone struggled but those with open data/IT background struggled less • It was not intuitive – real world communities will struggle • Manual/help pages need to be more visual with worked examples • Terminology will be alien to community user groups •We can see the potential and there is a desire amongst user test group to be able to interrogate policy making March 10, 2015 Event - Place 2
  3. 3. CCC - Task 4.2 We are building the user community through our Learner Advisory Panels and funding panel • We have begun awareness raising and have disseminated literature on Policy Compass to the four Community Learning & Skills Partnerships (CLASP) • We will demonstrate Policy Compass to each CLASP once we have a version we are happy with. • As a partner we need training on the Policy Compass platform ourselves before we try and promote it to wider groups • We will need support and training to run the workshops using the proposed focus group technique to engage stakeholders to evaluate conceptually the models, tools and techniques proposed within the Policy Compass project March 10, 2015 Event - Place 3
  4. 4. Task 4.3 – Preparation of Field trials • We are ready to begin specifying the field trail requirements but will again need some help in doing this • We will use the same wide range of CCC colleagues in this as we have used in the testing stage • Two new members of my team will we working on PC field trails from March, specifically with user groups and will play a key role in: • Preparation of briefing materials, evaluation pro-forma etc • Running the workshops and training users • Collecting the evaluation data • Validating basic platform functionality • .
  5. 5. Evaluation Scenario: data •Datasets identified, more needed •Mixture of open and non open data •Variety of formats – PDF, xls. •Further work needed to understand how datasets join together to form the bigger picture •Scenario examples – 3 •Project feeding into open data strategy
  6. 6. Evaluation Scenario cont: • FCM tools tested during 4.1 • Three outline proposals developed • Impact of literacy courses on homeless people in Cambridge • A health based one (details need to be confirmed) • ESOL (English for Speakers of other languages) provision across Cambridgeshire • Next steps: • Scope what open data is available and what need to add • Work up FCM for the above • Develop a better understanding of FCM to enable us to explain principles to community groups
  7. 7. Final comments • Policy Compass is linked closely to the wider push for accessible open data and the use of this with communities for even greater openness • Politically this project is happening at the right moment for the County – increasing awareness at both local and national government level However • It will be difficult to engage community users in its current format • The visualisation, usability and user guides are all critical to this
