Talk Abstract

Ian Robinson will share his experience as a CIO leading a substantial IT transformation programme to enable a radical business strategy. He will talk through the challenges of working in a complex organisation in an environment of substantial change. He will also share some practical experience and real world examples of the approaches taken and the lessons learned. The presentation will look at the application of Agile and Waterfall methodologies, using Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) and Risk Priority Code (RPC) to analyse and prioritise requirements. He will also explore the process of applying requirement ‘Fits’ and ‘Gaps’ to determine ‘out of the box’ versus ‘customised’ functionality.
