It’s been a while since our last update here regarding our Speed Evidence Project. There has been a lot going on, with the biggest news being that we now have a working information management portal. By no means is it pretty or full of all the bells and whistles, but it works and we are excited by it! It has also been great to share demonstrations of it with lots of people and organisations. We have been stunned by the reaction of people so far, especially by people in other organisations, which have been far more positive at this point in the project than we ever dreamed of.
We’ve put together short user guides and videos to help explain the portal and how it works. A video showing some of the features of the portal can be found here while a more static pdf version explaining similar features can be found here.
There a certainly things that we are learning and re-learning most of which relate to communication and change management:
Up next for us, is to carry out as many tests of the system as we can fit in over the next few months. We are in conversations about possible simulations – both internal and with other agencies, we’re hoping to use the portal in small one-country disaster response, and we will continue to conduct demonstrations and promote the portal at workshops and conferences. We’re taking a short break from coding at the moment, so that together with users of the portal we can prioritise what features to building/improving.
