31-Aug-12 Amongst the stars!

In Blog, Personal on August 31, 2012 at 5:52 am

It’s been an interesting week with the start of another major world wide sporting event in London, as well as the death of someone who will forever be remembered with walking on another planet!

Another spectacular image from the Olympic stadium.

Putting all this in to prospective, my week has been fairly dull, as it has mainly focused on setting out our IT roadmap for 2012 (what technology we need to implement or upgrade), as well as plan the budgets related to them.

Some of these are still at a fairly immature stage, so there is a lot of estimating in these (bit like a builder, but hopefully with some data to back it up).

Another strand has been the project management initiation piece and working with our Project Management Office (or PMO) to develop our business cases in preparation for senior level sign off. It’s always interesting that these really make you challenge yourself about the business benefits that the technology will actually bring and how you realise them.

The Paralympics gave us yet another spectacular opening ceremony this week, and as Londoners, we have truly been spoilt this summer with the games and the Queens jubilee. What a legacy of events we can share with our future generations in years to come! Good luck to all the athletes. You are already all legends for getting here.

Speaking of legends, Neil Armstrong sadly passed away this week. As most of you know from my blog, I had the opportunity to go to NASA during July. The whole experience of the moon race makes you realise what a lasting moment in time, Neil and his fellow crew members have left us with. RIP Neil amongst the stars!
