The Innovation Base Tom Franklin Franklin Consulting Hilary Dexter University of Manchester
Overview Modelling processes What is the Innovation Base Archimate and the Innovation Base Modelling exercise The Innovation Base
Modelling processes: Describe the area of business or concern that the process supports and the goals of the process being modelled. Identify participants in the process and those responsible for its execution Identify the principal process and the actions that make up that process. Identify the information/data needed as resources by activities Identify the information/data produced by activities Identify the necessary sequence of activities and the decision points in the sequence Identify any events which can modify the sequence Does notation matter?
A small slice of COVARM - in UML
What is the Innovation Base? A place For storing and sharing models Of any sort –Formal or informal –Image, description or model To help people model for themselves And To share knowledge and experience
What is the Innovation Base for? To help projects make their (modelling) outputs more useful To help programme managers understand their domains To help analysts in their work To support the e-Framework To support communities of practice To support interoperability and reuse
What is the Innovation Base for? To answer questions like: –Who is involved in student progression? –Who requires training in new health and safety procedures? –Which applications does the student record system interact with? –Who uses the student record systems? –Which SUMs support student registration?
Rightsizing the HeWorld Knowledgebase Lower barriers to contribution and consumption Build modelling capability across the sector Avoid vocabulary and granularity ‘issues’ Enable collection of ‘usefully related’ materials We need to: So we aggregate elements into more general categories of ‘stuff’ that people will produce Innovation Base (IB) is a simplified structure derived from an HE domain model; Peoples’ models of things in HEworld are in UML, BPMN, Archimate, free text, sketches…These models will be kept in IB
IB: a smallish number of generous/inclusive buckets Domain Event Rule Artefact Information Transaction Role Motivation Competency Lifecycle State Lifecycle Organisation Service Application Project Quality Evaluation Work
Joining things up We want to make our models of things like business processes in such a way that we can make use of others’ examples and share our outputs. Which buckets do we need for modelling a business process (and fitting it into an enterprise architecture)? Domain Rule Artefact MotivationRole Organisation Work
Activity: Model your process with IB cards
Guidelines for the activity: Using 5 key questions we can look at our pieces of the larger HEsystem: 1)Where are we? (Domain and Organisation) 2)Who is here? (Role) 3)What are they doing and why? (Work and Motivation) 4)What things do they use and produce? (Artefact) 5)What controls their work? (Rule) Activity: build your own business process… We look for the concrete examples from our own areas and for the links between them.
Topic, area of interest, discipline, environment Domain The Teaching and Learning domain of HE: Subdomain: Programme
