Where we are currently
As we come to the last two weeks of the current contract with Made Tech we’re on schedule for delivering ETRA and making sure we’re in a good place to carry on with the next phase.
Housing Digital Strategy
We’re not 100% what the next phase for Manage a Tenancy is going to consist of at the moment. This is partly due to the internal consultation that’s just started for the new Housing Digital Strategy being organised by Jasmeen. This is going to include lots of opportunity for discussions with people in the Housing team as to how we can best move forwards.
This is a 30 minute recording of the first of those workshops.
We’re happy to announce that ITV is now live for Housing Officers to use! Lorraine has created a training video for it.
This week’s show and tell
The slides for this week’s show and tell
can be found here.
Unfortunately, the recording for this week’s show and tell didn’t go according to plan but we’ll make sure everything’s good to go next time.
The next show and tell will present ETRA and Lorraine will be creating another training video for that service.
Lots of meetings in the next two weeks about the next stage of Manage a Tenancy – we’ll make sure we keep everyone up to speed.
From the User Needs we came up with User Stories, capturing likely journeys that Users may take when interacting with the HR process. We came up with User stories for HR Business Partners.
We then had a workshop with HR Business Partners to prioritise the User Stories, using MoSCow. The prioritised User stories are highlighted in Yellow, see below:
