Weeknotes: Network redesign and implementation for webfirst project WC: 13/05

Where we are
We entered our sprint 6 – which is our last sprint of this information gathering and learning phase.

Last sprint: Sprint 5
Sprint 5: 30/04/19 – 14/05/19, our goal was to complete the setting up of all the exercises and activities that we had planned for our testing, learning and information gathering. So we ensured that the final parts of the test lab for testing new devices was up and running and the user surveys were all sent out to our users in in our test sites and begin to chase users to ensure we collate as much of the response as possible.

This Sprint: Sprint 6
This is our agreed and official last sprint of the learning, discovery and information gathering phase. The ultimate goal is complete all tests – network devices testing in the lab and in the user network; user experience and site analysis in preparation to enter our design and exploratory phase.

Looking ahead
The team is excited and enthusiastic about entering the next phase. a lot of learning has happened over the last 6 sprints, and we are keen to begin to interpret all the data that we have collated and start turning them into tangible, meaningful network design. We are bursting with the potential possibilities that we’ll uncover and and how we might make sense of all of them to satisfy our user needs and high level design.

What have we learned
Liked: We have enjoyed prompt responses from our various potential suppliers. All our potential suppliers seem to be enjoying working with us in an agile way.
Learned: We have learned that collaboration and knowledge sharing is indeed awesome! We have enjoyed collaborating in a multi-disciplinary team in achieving technical and non-technical tasks specifically around delivering and setting up network switches for testing in our lab and on the network.
Lacked: Our communication to the world outside our team hasn’t been as good as we would have like. So we’ll ensure that we are working with our product owner to ensure that we are telling the wider ICT and the organisation about the things that we are doing.

Everyone has been amazing. so special thanks to +Henry Lewis +Isaiah Oketola +Chidi Oko +Shafiq Ahmed +Gillian Newman +Mal Morris and +Lindsay Rex

Star of the sprint, will be shared between +Isaiah Oketola, +Chidi Oko and +Shafiq Ahmed for all the hard work including working out of hours to get our test sites surveyed and device testing all set up! You guys are really awesome!!!
