321225 - [On 030527 1100 NIH refused $30 million grant to SRI for
321226 - funding OHS/DKR development project because Microsoft planned
321227 - to release Sharepoint, which NIH officials believed would
321228 - accomplish OHS/DKR support for collaboration at less cost.
321229 - ref SDS 91 XD90
321231 - ..
321232 - Has a charter been prepared setting out assignments announced at
321233 - the meeting today (see below), and identifying deliverables to

321237 - Who is working on instruments to give project an official life,

321243 - source joint venture, that is contracting for support from SRI?
321245 - ..
321246 - Potential sponsor, NIH, requires a showing of effective project
321247 - management capability, ref DRP 3 TZ4L, including audits on progress
321248 - and handling of daily working information, per below. ref SDS 0 4877
321250 - ..
321251 - An example of converting information into useful knowledge is an SDS
321252 - record that provides chronologies based subject context, see below.
321253 - ref SDS 0 1575
321255 - This aligns with Doug's report on 000929 that sponsors require
321256 - effective management. ref SDS 62 WR7H On 000601 Marcello Hoffman
321257 - explained the project must demonstrate the ability to perform,
321258 - rather than deliver "high tech tourism." ref SDS 40 1007
321260 - [On 030527 1100 NIH refused $30 million grant to SRI for
321261 - funding OHS/DKR development project because Microsoft
321262 - planned to release Sharepoint, which NIH officials believed
321263 - would accomplish OHS/DKR support for collaboration at less
321264 - cost. ref SDS 91 XD90
321266 - ..
321267 - On 950428 productivity of IT engineering was reported lower than
321268 - other sectors because IT encourages poor management practices,
321269 - ref SDS 4 3921, under the misapplied rubric of "empowerment," as
321270 - reported on 970710. ref SDS 7 1431 On 990524 engineers are
321271 - pressured to avoid good management practice, ref SDS 9 6892, and
321272 - on 990525 engineers don't want to use good engineering practice.
321273 - ref SDS 10 0966
321275 - ..
321276 - These social dynamics make audits unpopular, reported on 940114.
321277 - ref SDS 3 XY4L On 990527 strong cultural forces prevent adding an
321278 - "intelligence" role to daily management. ref SDS 11 1233 As a
321279 - result, audits are the only chance the team has to succeed by
321280 - overcoming powerful barriers that block use of KM.
321282 - ..
321283 - Properly designed oversight encourages good management practices
321284 - proposed by Doug on 000427 in a Guide to Running NICs, ref SDS 31
321285 - 2867, discussed further below. ref SDS 0 3995 This helps overcome
321286 - fear that effective management takes too much discipline, noted by
321287 - Henry van Eykan in his letter on 000926. ref SDS 60 004M Auditing
321288 - therefore supports Doug's call on 000326 to use the project for
321289 - learning how to improve handling of daily working information,
321290 - ref SDS 21 5972, explained by Doug on 000327. ref SDS 22 3971
321291 - Experience using good management practice, will guide design of
321292 - the DKR and OHS to augment intelligence, discussed recently on
321293 - 000929 proposing review of pending action items. ref SDS 62 4F6J
321295 - ..
321296 - Planning for 100% Solution Needed for Open Source
321298 - Success of projects are mostly determined by getting started on
321299 - a solid footing, as noted previously by Eugene and Eric.
321300 - Projects are also discussed in POIMS, ref OF 1 1113, applying
321301 - ISO and PMBOK criteria reviewed on 950721. ref SDS 5 3291
321303 - ..
321304 - Therefore, SRI needs to review NIH audit requirements and
321305 - negotiate procedures to enhance the work, as a predicate to
321306 - launching the project.
321308 - [On 001030 Jack Park cites advantages of open source.
321309 - ref SDS 73 RH3L
321311 - ..
321312 - [On 001101 Jack submits article on starting a project by
321313 - understanding requirements and design. ref SDS 75 MX6H
321315 - ..
321316 - For example, Doug Engelbart reported today that SRI will show
321317 - that open source methods can improve SDS. ref SDS 0 9622 On
321318 - 000601 Doug requested backup for using Open Source. ref SDS 40
321319 - 1976 On 000615 Eugene Kim was assembling a report on this
321320 - issue. ref SDS 43 1976
321322 - ..
321323 - This report can show how project audits will impact open source
321324 - contributors? What about termite production methods posed on
321325 - 000831. ref SDS 57 0001 How will production code be linked to
321326 - specs, and how will the specs be aligned with SRI's objectives,
321327 - and commitments to NIH?
321329 - ..
321330 - Mark Mitchell, project manager assigned today, reported on
321331 - 000413 that open source development presents major challenges.
321332 - ref SDS 25 2124 Typically open source achieves 80% solution.
321334 - ..
321335 - Therefore, team needs a plan for a 100% solution.
321337 - What additional time and expense will be needed to produce
321338 - the last 20%, starting in 2001 to formulate an architecture,
321339 - reported by Eugene today. ref SDS 0 TJ3G
321341 - ..
321342 - ISO criteria calls for project audits to show alignment with
321343 - objectives, requirements, history and commitments, e.g., schedules
321344 - and budgets, reviewed on 950721. ref SDS 5 1740 How will this
321345 - criteria for alignment be accomplished day-to-day on the job?
321347 - ..
321348 - Meetings are typically the least productive activity on a project
321349 - (see review on 940114, ref SDS 3 2290, and problems at Intel on
321350 - 970603. ref SDS 6 5803), followed by email and phone calls (see
321351 - high cost of medical mistakes, 990924, ref DIP 1 1045) ISO criteria
321352 - therefore calls for a system of metrics to maintain alignment of
321353 - communications. ref SDS 5 2396
321355 - ..
321356 - How will the project overcome allure of feel good management using
321357 - strong communication skills to "expedite" by cutting corners that
321358 - seem at the moment to save time and money, but cause mistakes that
321359 - increase time and cost on a slippery slope of covering up in order
321360 - to avoid accountability, reviewed on 980405, ref SDS 8 5065, which
321361 - requires destroying the record, ref OF 1 4079, rather than using
321362 - the record to build the job? It's a KM dilemma which regular
321363 - project audits can address constructively.
321365 - ..
321366 - A recent example, commitment to project objectives was registered
321367 - by recommending on 001012 getting started without a design to guide
321368 - the work in hopes that talented engineers, doing what they want,
321369 - even if it is in the wrong direction, yields synergy that expedites
321370 - progress. ref SDS 64 B4P2
321372 - ..
321373 - Policy and procedures for Developing KM Solution
321375 - In addition to audits, discussed above, ref SDS 0 W66J, what
321376 - business practices will be used that enable the team to learn KM,
321377 - supplementing SRI's standard practices? Pat reported on 000829
321378 - that SRI needs to improve current practices by adding KM?
321379 - ref SDS 55 MJ6F In the interim, how will DKR project discover the
321380 - secrets of KM, while SRI develops this capability internally?
321382 - Conflicting business practices between SRI and CodeSourcery
321383 - need to be identified and resolved?
321385 - ..
321386 - When will this review be performed, and who is doing it?
321388 - ..
321389 - Will the project record be published to show daily working
321390 - information that maintains alignment with objectives and shows
321391 - progress?
