I’m still having a bit of a “long summer” here, but starting to ramp up towards some major work starting in October. So, what have I been doing?
Working with colleagues at Jisc preparing the ground for Analytics Labs and DfE Labs. I’ll be working with Rhodri once again which will be great. Some of the community dashboards we helped the teams to develop are now going live thanks to Neil at HESA.
Collaborating with the other partners at Cetis LLP on one of our consultancy offerings we’ll be promoting in the coming year, including a focus on transforming student journeys in HE using a combination of service design, analytics and integration. I’ve been writing up case studies from previous clients, and we’ve been collaborating on a concept map for all our various consultancies over the years to try and make sense of the connections, and come up with a good way of communicating the value to customers.
Arranging to deliver a course of open source licensing and commercialisation for tech transfer professionals with PraxisUnico in December. This will be the third time I’ve run this course, which is basically to help people in Enterprise units understand the various options for commercialising software inventions in universities, from patents to open source.
Harvesting chillies from the greenhouse, and keeping up the salad supply.
Playing Mass Effect: Andromeda on the Xbox.
Reading Firefall by Peter Watts. Now onto the second part, Echopraxia.
In case you don’t know me, I’m a consultant and partner in Cetis LLP, specialising in BI/analytics, open source software, and technology discovery and pre-procurement. Always interested in new clients, so feel free to get in touch.
