Get A GRIP Of Your Handbook (IET London Network)
From an assurance perspective, the 8 stages of GRIP ensures pre and post implementation success, as it lets you asks burning questions such as, what happens after we plug and play ? Who will maintain the success and how? How does the project cater for innovation?
Speaking with Ivan Lucic (UK Railway’s Bob the Builder) , I asked him what his thoughts are on railway innovations. We discussed that rail services are always progressing and that innovations like Hyperloop are just one example of how transportation services can augment. I then asked him about his thoughts on Cyber Security and we further discussed that as a non-functional requirement, Cyber Security has a very important role to play in any responsible system.
We didn’t get to the discuss the new series of Thomas The Tank Engine though - a more pressing matter for the next time I meet Ivan.
