The resource web page contains the following information

  1. Deliverables that will be added to the CD-ROM 'Thrive, survive, succumb - it all depends on your value system'

  2. Deliverables available from 4 projects completed by a Ripose architect: using the Ripose technique; using Caspar to store and data mine the information; and finalising the documentation using Word and Power Point to provide business managers with the results to assist them with their next steps

  3. A new way to govern - In Feb 2007, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced a summit to gather 1,000 top brains in Australia to come together to find a way to prepare a long term strategic plan for Australia

    The purpose statement of the 2020 summit started with Prime Minister Rudd’s opening statement: “Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has opened the 2020 summit, telling hundreds of delegates in Canberra that he is looking for a new way to govern the nation.”

    The outcome of the summit can be viewed on http://www.australia2020.gov.au/

    Ripose's analysis of the summit.

Deliverables

Contains deliverables from 4 projects. 

  • The first project was carried out in 1997 to assist a medical practice identify their business needs. The deliverables were prototypes of work carried out on later projects. No computer program was produced from this project as management realised they did not have the resources to complete the project at that time
  • The second was carried out in 1999 to assist a local government (council) identify their business needs. The deliverables were prototypes of work carried out on later projects. No computer program was produced from this project as management realised they did not have the resources to complete the project at that time
  • The third used the Ripose techniques and deliverables to ascertain all the business requirements prior to committing resources (time, people and money) to cut the computer code to implement the idea. No computer program was produced from this project as management realised they did not have the resources to complete the project at that time
  • The fourth used the Ripose technique to deliver a computerised system needed to run the business. A fully integrated booking and accounts receivable system was developed, with an estimated saving of $950k over 5 years

Early prototype The following documentation was produced by a Ripose architect using the Ripose technique and an early version of Caspar to produce the following:
  • An original version of the proof of concept
  • An animated version of the proof of physical - may not work in your web browser, you may have to save the file on your hard drive and run it by using your file browser to locate the saved file and double clicking on the file

A second early prototype The following documentation was produced by a Ripose architect using the Ripose technique and an early version of Caspar to produce the following: back
Modeling deliverables The following documentation was produced to assist a small business overcome the shortages of resources to produce a full set of deliverables containing their requirements. To date due to lack of resources, the project remains incomplete.

The following set of deliverables were produced:

Working proof of physical The following documentation was produced to assist a small business overcome the shortages of resources to produce a prototype of their requirements which was later implemented, first in a client server environment and later - due to poor performance re-implemented on a terminal server platform
  • Business  modeling - these documents contain the sum total of business operatives knowledge on what their business required:
  • Data and process modeling - 
    This section was bypassed by using the RAD (rapid application development technique) approach to produce a working prototype, hence the documentation containing the proof of logic was substituted by the screen shots of the proof of physical (to be used as operating instructions) -

A new way

The findings of the 2020 summit have been published, however what appears to be missing is a blueprint which addresses the Prime Minister's purpose - "he is looking for a new way to govern the nation". 

Using the Ripose Technique, we humbly submit a draft document () outlining a new way. Should anyone wish to discuss this matter, please feel free to contact us on info@ripose.com
