So what does it mean for us?

1. How should we define usefulness?

2. How do we measure impact in an education context?

3. How much should we be tied in to measuring

usefulness and where does that leave innovation?

Traditional project management

Agile project management

vs

1. Planned

2. Clear, fixed aims and objectives

3. Measurable outputs, outcomes,

benefits

1. Delivery of a vision

2. Based on working software

3. Customer collaboration and response to change

slide17

Twelve principles underlie the Agile Manifesto

1. Customer satisfaction by rapid delivery of

useful software

2. Welcome changing requirements, even

late in development

3. Working software is delivered frequently

(weeks rather than months)

4. Working software is the principal measure

of progress

5. Sustainable development, able to

maintain a constant pace

6. Close, daily co-operation between

business people and developers

7. Face-to-face conversation is the best form

of communication

8. Projects are built around motivated

individuals, who should be trusted

9. Continuous attention to technical

excellence and good design

10. Simplicity

11. Self-organizing teams

12. Regular adaptation to changing

circumstances

path to the truth is littered with useful failures umberto eco
Path to the truth is littered with useful failures – Umberto Eco
  • According to this principle, science progresses by continually correcting itself, falsifying its hypotheses by trial and error, admitting its own mistakes - and by considering that an experiment that doesn't work out is not a failure but is worth as much as a successful one, because it proves that a certain line of research was mistaken and it is necessary either to change direction or even to start over from scratch.

How do we define 'useful'?

  • How do we measure the wider

impact of non-traditionally 'useful' projects/products?

  • Who's responsibility is

innovation?

  • Do we need a shift in approach

in order to produce both innovative and useful projects/products in today's rapidly changing environment?
