SUPPORTING AGILE IN THE CORPORATE WORLD

Creating a business environment to better support agile working is about transition rather than transformation.

To encourage the agile fundamentals of collaboration, team work and creativity, companies need to redesign existing space for a more fluid and flexible workplace. So the physical environment is prioritised to facilitate agile teams but should the focus shift to technological solutions to improve the methodologies that are so integral to the process? Digitising the iteration and review process will help to drive efficiencies and ensure the team stays on track throughout every stage of a project.

  • Support businesses that adopt agile methodologies, such as Scrum or Kanban
  • Allow all agile team members to work together as a group regardless of their geographical location
  • Help organisations transition to digital agile working
  • Preserve the familiar ‘paper-based’ processes whilst updating for the digital
  • Improve communication and collaboration for all agile team members

Break down the barriers

Businesses that use the methodologies of agile and lean have to ensure their processes reflect the modern working world. Targets on projects are tighter than ever, with increased pressure on both budgets and time. Teams have to remain collaborative and innovative against a rising expectation that large projects will be completed at speed. Simply adopting agile or lean methods will not guarantee a successful outcome. Agile working needs to advance to make each stage of the process more efficient. The introduction of the right technological tools could boost the performance of both individuals and the group as a whole. Solutions that can complement proven methods and fast track them into the digital age.

Agile goes digital

In modern corporate culture it is not feasible to expect agile teams to be co-located and gathered together in one designated office. For agile to be a success in the digital age, it has to work virtually. Ideally, the same level of communication and collaboration should be achieved regardless of location, with equal input from all remote and office-based employees. Agile teams have to track a full end to end, agile process while enabling collaboration and engagement. Yet, given that this is such a forward-thinking methodology, many still use whiteboards and post-it notes to iterate and track their progress. Why? Because it’s familiar and,  most importantly  it works. Rather than seeking to replace these methodologies, any digital solutions have to build on those tried and tested methods, make them more efficient and accessible in the virtual world.

The need to advance agile working practices is reflected in the many software tools emerging on to the market.

The majority are designed for individuals, specifically to use on their own personal devices. However, as the success of agile is based on team performance it is essential that the software platform not only supports individuals, but the team as a whole. One such solution that supports groups working together is Nureva’s Span. It provides a visual platform for agile teams to contribute and track even the most complex projects and as it is cloud-based it is accessible from any place and any device.

Span takes the principle of collaborating with familiar tools such as whiteboards and sticky notes into the digital realm.

When NurevaSpan software is combined with NurevaSpan hardware it creates a full digital experience and the ability to replace any paper process with an immersive and interactive solution. Teams can view and review their virtual ‘sprint board’ and walls of sticky notes containing the actions and objectives from any location on their chosen device. To make agile working more efficient, Span’s cloud-hosted canvas can be filled with multiple templates, images, post it notes and sketches. Agile teams can instantly see all their data and are already familiar with the software tools to replicate the analogue process.

Without the right tools it is a huge challenge to follow an agile model when a company culture centres on virtual collaboration.

Agile and lean methodologies can be even more powerful with a solution such as Span. Employees spread across the globe can contribute and complete tasks in their own time zones, with greater flexibility to communicate and collaborate. Project leaders and scrum masters can keep on top changes and track progress in real-time rather than scheduling regular face-to-face meetings to check every status updates. And when working on multiple projects, simply switch between Span canvases – now the available space doesn’t limit the implementation of the methodologies.

Why Nureva

Businesses are redesigning theirphysical working environments to better facilitate agile interactions.Nureva has created digital solutions to help every organisation make that transition and advance the paper-based processes of the agile working approach.Companies can power their lean and agile processes with Span’s adaptable tools, such as the custom templates, to visualise workflows and keep everyone aligned. One collaboration space can be used for multiple projects and teams can track theircomplex activities and visually understand how their requests and activities connect. The benefits of using this digital solution are clear, better ways of working, more efficient agile processes and improved productivity to complement all agile practices.

  • Cloud-based collaboration software lets remote teams access and contribute to workflows in real-time from any location
  • Tracks the entire process end to end, while enabling collaboration and engagement.
  • Engaging and simple-to-use tool, designed to replace paper processes such as Scrum and Kanban

Defining Collaborative Innovation

Corporates are evolving their traditional R&D models to embrace a more open culture. The phrase Collaborative Innovation focuses on a new approach for companies to develop their products, services or business solutions. Multiple internal and external stakeholders are involved in the collaborative process, with in house teams, customers and suppliers working together and openly sharing each stage of development. The ultimate goal is to create a powerful network comprised of small, specialist players able to collaborate at both scale and speed.

Innovation Lab

Designing a dedicated space to facilitate sharing and open working is the first step towards collaborative innovation. The Innovation Lab provides a contained working area for employees and visitors to collaborate – from working through lean and agile processes, to product development or hackathons. These spaces promote the ideation and creative processes, busy hubs of activity where cross-functional teams can focus on proposals and projects submitted from across the business. Innovation Labs tend to be customer-centric, data-driven and tech-enabled to accelerate the various processes and improve productivity.

Technology to inspire innovation

Technology to inspire innovation

Adopting a more sociable and outward-facing style and approach demands more than a redesign of the physical space. Companies need to provide a mix of specific areas for innovation activities, with a range of communication, visualisation and prototyping tools. Reconfiguring existing space is a critical building block. Adopting the right tools and technological solutions will make the entire process smoother and pave the way for a new working culture. The Nureva™ Span™ Workspace solution provides the adaptable digital tools to inspire innovation processes and adds a whole new dimension to the dedicated office space.

The Challenge

Many of today’s workplaces are struggling to cope with the conference call boom. The number of virtual meetings now trumps face-to-face, but are office environments changing to reflect the growing demand for well-equipped meeting facilities? One major challenge is the room acoustics – particularly in the modern structures where glass and reflective surfaces are a nightmare for the audio. Most businesses have at least one of these ‘problem rooms’, the one that workers avoid using because they know the sound quality is awful. Now, for every problem room, there is a solution. One that will wipe out the issue of background noise and allow attendees inside and outside the room to be heard loud and clear.

  • Help the business to maximise their meeting space with minimum cost and disruption to current layout
  • Deliver the highest level of audio quality for all attendees including remote participants
  • Improve productivity by turning problem rooms into active meeting spaces
  • Work for companies looking for flexibility in multi-use office environments
  • Be simple to install and use without the need for technicians

The right acoustics

In office design, the focus is often on aesthetics rather than acoustics. It seems the furniture, design and technology are top of the agenda, while the acoustics are frequently overlooked. State of the art meeting rooms may look stunning, but are worthless for all those corporate conference calls if the audio is poor. Resolving the problem used to involve calling in the experts and having a complex beam-forming or array system fitted to alleviate some of the audio issues. Or companies just learn to live with the problem, to accept the associated disruption and cost implications, knowing their technology is incapable of producing the best sound quality for calls.

Tackling the audio issues

Whether a company is trying to conduct a constructive internal call or impress a new client, any problems with audio are disruptive and damaging. So what is it that causes the issue in a ‘problem room’? It’s a common challenge in both old structures and modern new builds. The acoustics are affected by everything from the shape to the surfaces of the walls and desks, or sound omitted from electrical equipment. Any effective technological solution has to overcome these different audio challenges and ensure participants’ voices are heard regardless of the room design.

Learn to love the audio in the problem room

Many offices are at full capacity in terms of spaces suitable to host conference calls. A common-sense solution for ‘problem’ rooms in the NurevaTM breakthrough Microphone MistTM technology that effectively fills the room with up to 8,192 virtual microphones. Whether the speaker is seated at a table, holding a stand-up meeting or working at a screen, the microphones will focus on the speaker’s voice. It is the first system to provide true full-room pick up for dynamic meetings where participants move freely through the space to interact.

The elements of a ‘problem’ room such as glass walls, movable furniture and electrical equipment are all overcome with the virtual microphones and advanced processing. The system can tell the difference between multiple people seeking and distracting background noises so people will only hear what they need to hear and voices will be clear no matter where they are, whether inside or outside of the room. And it automatically recalibrates to accommodate different layouts.

For businesses looking for a simple solution for their ‘problem’ room, the HDL300 system is not only cost effective, it’s a plug and play solution that can be up and running within 30 minutes. The microphone and speaker bar are simply hung on the wall so it’s a fraction of the cost and inconvenience of an in-ceiling system and will fit with any flexible room layout. Ideal for use in any office meeting space as it is plug and play and integrates easily with commonly used Unified Communication platforms such as Skype.

Why HDL300?

Audio conferencing is a common complaint in the corporate world. Team members can’t be heard as they move about the room. Expensive installations can take a room offline for a day or more. Set up and calibration requires a technician, while the costs quickly accumulate. Now there’s a new approach to audio conferencing to solve the challenge of ‘problem’ rooms. Microphone Mist technology will fill any space with virtual microphones to provide true full-room pickup. Installation is easy. Calibration is automatic and no specialist technicians are required. Costs are under control as are complaints from employees and every conference call will have the highest audio quality.

  • For flexible office spaces, the system will automatically recalibrate to provide complete coverage for any room configuration
  • Meeting participants can be heard no matter where they move in the room or which direction they face
  • Supports businesses’ existing UC&U platforms Skype® for Business, Skype, Zoom, Cisco WebEx™, GoToMeeting™, StarLeaf, BlueJeans, and most other UC&C software
  • The Dual HDL300 can be used in large spaces and costs a fraction of traditional systems

A sound solution for meeting room audio

The Challenge

Inaudible participants on conference calls is a frustrating, time-wasting problem that is all too common in the corporate world. The number of remote workers has grown substantially and naturally, this has sparked an increase in conference calls involving multiple workers in multiple locations. The confusion caused by not being able to hear a participant or convey a message easily is one of the great meeting disruptors. Today’s meeting room scenario demands a vastly improved audio experience to allow all employees to communicate and collaborate effectively.

  • Ensure workforces can collaborate effectively regardless of their location
  • Help remote meeting participants feel like they’re right there with their team
  • Ensure every attendee can contribute equally and is heard clearly
  • Improve collaboration and meeting room performance

Seamless audio for virtual meetings

Today’s businesses are stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to modern ways of working and collaboration. On one hand, companies are keen to enable seamless interactivity among employees and encourage them to engage in highly interactive, collaborative sessions. On the other hand, the drive to remain competitive in the 24/7 ‘always-on’ culture means workers are no longer just based in an office.

Workforces are dispersed and businesses have had to explore how teams can still work together even when they’re not physically together. IT departments are facing increased pressure to support the advanced collaborative environments companies strive for and incorporate remote

participants. An area that has come under great scrutiny is the technology in meeting rooms and finding solutions that will make virtual meetings seamless for all attendees, regardless of their location.

When workers are on trains offering feedback, leading presentations from hotels or developing strategies from home, high-quality audio is critical for collaboration success. With some of the latest next-generation audio conferencing solutions comes the promise of a seamless, frictionless experience for all participants. Everyone will be switched on, tuned in and heard clearly, whatever the conference call or meeting scenario.

The Nureva HDL300 solution

The Nureva HDL300 system has the power to simultaneously process every audio source in a room and deliver a more natural sense of communication. Optimised for small to mid-sized meeting and collaboration spaces, at the core of the HDL300 is Nureva’s Microphone Mist technology. The solution is enabled by real-time hardware and uses sophisticated algorithms to simultaneously process sound from all virtual microphones to provide remote participants with the highest quality listening experience.

8,192 virtual microphones

Powered by Nureva™ Microphone Mist™ technology, the HDL300 system fills a room with 8,192 virtual microphones processing sound in the same way people’s brains do. In conversation, the brain filters noises and distractions to focus on what is being said. Through advanced signal processing algorithms, this effect is replicated by intelligently focusing on what the person wants to hear and reducing all other noise. Every one of the thousands of microphones is always on, even with multiple people in the room talking and moving. No matter where the speaker is standing or how they move, a microphone will pick up their voice.

Meetings never sounded so clear

The system’s custom audio processing unit is capable of handling 15,000 MIPS, which is much more powerful than conventional systems. This power is used to create a quality listening experience for remote participants by way of the virtual microphones, continuous self-calibration, simultaneous echo cancellation, position-based automatic gain control and sound masking.

Why the Nureva HDL300 system?

THE FUTURE OF MEETINGS NEVER SOUNDED SO CLEAR

Supporting active collaboration and remote participation simply isn’t possible without carefully considered high-quality audio delivered by a next-generation audio conferencing system. Some companies still believe that using a speakerphone will suffice when inviting remote participants into team collaboration meetings. However, shoddy audio will only disengage remote workers and hamper any collaboration efforts.

  • Listens to all microphones simultaneously, dynamically selecting the one closest to the speaker
  • Ensures the best quality sound for people outside of the room
  • No matter where someone stands, how they move, or what direction they’re facing, one of the thousands of microphones will pick up their voice
  • Ideas can be heard from anywhere – the back of the room, in front of a display or even the other side of the continent

AVOID MEETING ROOM MIS-MANAGEMENT

The Challenge

Meeting room mismanagement is a frequent cause of confusion and disruption in the corporate workplace. It’s almost become an accepted part of company culture – being in the wrong place at the wrong time, or indeed the right place at the right time, after yet another double booking. Far too many businesses focus on technological solutions inside the meeting room and forgo the fundamental part of ensuring the spaces are being booked and used effectively.

  • Ensure every meeting room is used in a truly effective way
  • Save on costs, time and disruption caused by meeting room mismanagement
  • Create a modern workplace that reflects the digital revolution

Making meetings even smoother

The meeting room is an integral part of every business, regardless of the size of the organisation. These critical spaces provide the setting for everything from the company’s collaborative efforts to its key decision-making and creative endeavours. The hubs of activity make a significant contribution to the success of a business, yet there is a minimal focus on managing meeting space effectively.

Meeting room conflicts cause a lot of headaches internally and, as a significant proportion of meetings include external visitors, it can also be a professional embarrassment that doesn’t reflect well on the company. Rather than dealing with booking mishaps, these all too familiar scenarios can easily be avoided with the help of meeting room management solution.

For effective management, organisations need to have full insight into their meeting patterns to really optimise resources. Digital solutions that offer detailed reporting, analysis and statistics can help businesses to decide what meeting room space is needed, cutting overhead costs and ensuring the perfect room is used for every single meeting.

The right communications for transport

Communication is crucial in airports, train stations or bus terminals to help give passengers a stress-free journey. Transport hubs need to manage passenger flow and provide relevant information but pressure on budgets means customer-facing staff are already stretched. How can these businesses take passenger communication to the next level without placing additional strain on their staff resources? Transport companies need the right communications platform to engage and inform travellers and provide the smoothest possible journey from A to B.

  • Ease the frustration for travellers by providing vital real-time information
  • Bring cost efficiencies by connecting customers to staff based remotely
  • Improve customers' satisfaction during periods of disruption
  • Enhance the travel experience with relevant journey and destination information

Cut queues with remote support

For the day-to-day running of a transport hub or during inevitable periods of disruption passengers demand live and specific information about their journey or destination. Many turn to their personal devices for the latest transport news, and businesses can now capitalise on this digital familiarity by using their own branded digital communications technology. The aim is to build a personal connection with passengers, reduce queues and enable transport hubs to deliver the best customer service

Communication gets live and personal

Whether it’s regular commuters or ad-hoc customers, at every transport hub passengers spend the majority of their time waiting. Live communication tools can capture the attention of this captive audience by displaying relevant information from timetables and directions to local points of interest. Interactive solutions will engage customers and go above and beyond simple information sharing. Transport companies can offer customer service support by linking passengers to staff based in a remote location. A personal travel experience that takes passengers to their final destination with ease.

A strong operational performance is vital for transport businesses and this could be improved with better customer engagement to increase the flow of passengers.

A supportive solution for space management

The Challenge

Modern buildings with multi-use spaces are a huge logistical challenge for Facilities Managers. Businesses demand flexible, fluid layouts and Facilities Managers must align their strategic planning to support collaborative working environments. In the struggle with square footage, could technology be the key to effective space management? As the challenge intensifies to maximise efficiency, adopting the latest space management solution could help to optimise the use of every corporate space.

  • Help Facilities Managers support the core business needs of their organisation
  • Bring transparency and clarity to the use of all office meeting space
  • Provide measurable data to improve effective running of meeting rooms
  • Create a more efficient meeting culture

How managing meeting space can improve operational performance

The shift away from traditional office layouts brings an added layer of complexity to Facilities Management. Formal meeting rooms and corporate boardrooms have to function alongside huddle spaced and hub hangouts. When manages effectively, the result is increased productivity and more efficient use of the space resource. Inefficiencies result in double bookings, faulty equipment and lack of room availability. Having an overview of occupancy rates, patterns of use and monitoring of equipment gives Facilities Managers a clearer picture of their meeting space activity and how it can be improved.

No room for improvement

Successful space management can be achieved with the introduction of the right technology. When a key part of the Facilities Manager’s role is to maintain a suitable working environment for all employees and their activities, an advanced technological solution will help to ensure that best practices are followed, delivering maximum efficiency. With a full insight into company meeting patterns, Facilities Managers can use those statistics to plan more effectively and cut costs.

Evoko Liso is a next-generation touch-screen solution for managing meeting room bookings. Designed to make sure all meeting rooms are being used in a truly effective way, Evoko Liso removes the all too common problems of double bookings, unnecessary confusion and interrupted meetings. The solution provides businesses with a full insight into their meeting patterns and by analysing statistics in the Evoko Home system, companies can optimise the use of every meeting space. The platform provides a range of vital report functions – from the number of unconfirmed room bookings to the frequency of reported functions – from the number of unconfirmed room bookings to the frequency of reported faulty equipment

The solution makes it easy for employees to book a room – using either a digital calendar or directly on the screen. All information is clearly presented on the screen and it actually changes on the display when someone walks up to it, always showing the most relevant details. Users can book, end or extend a meeting directly from the clock-based interface or use the calendar to search for other rooms based on availability, size and equipment. Meeting room bookings are put back in the hands of employees and Facilities Managers have the data at their fingertips to plan and manages the spaces effectively.

When Facilities Managers are dealing with multiple systems and multi-use spaces, Evoko Liso’s open API allows it to integrate smoothly with other third-party systems.

  • Plan more effectively and cut costs by getting the right room for every single meeting

The Challenge

The demand for group collaboration in universities, and the capture of the resulting discussions, has never been higher.  But for higher education, the need is not without its technological challenges. Away from lecture halls, students need a more intimate environment, and the tools to foster group working. Digitally-driven young adults will use technology to enhance communication and connect to their peers inside and outside of the meeting room. How can universities do more to maximise the potential of their multiple meeting rooms? Technology can offer solutions to creating flexible spaces that inspire students and offer support for group interaction.

  • Allow students to collaborate easily and effectively in break out rooms
  • Enable remote participants to feel like they’re right there in the room
  • Ensure every attendee is heard clearly and can contribute equally
  • Help all university meeting rooms be used to their full potential
  • Allow tailored audio pick up for perfect lecture capture

Ensure every student finds their voice

The university infrastructure has to pave the way for digital transformation and the progression of more student-led and project-based learning methods. Alongside traditional lecture theatres are many multi-use rooms that could be ideal for smaller group working sessions if equipped with the right tools.  The pressure is growing on IT departments to support collaborative environments and incorporate scalable technology to fit the different layouts of these meeting rooms.

One critical aspect is getting the audio right – both for people present in the meeting and remote participants joining the conference call. Inaudible calls are a frustrating, time-wasting problem that hampers group discussion. University meeting rooms demand a vastly improved audio experience to allow all students to communicate and collaborate effectively.

The Nureva HDL300 system has the power to simultaneously process every audio source in a room and deliver a more natural sense of communication. Optimised for small to mid-sized meeting and collaboration spaces, at the core of the HDL300 is Nureva’s new Microphone Mist technology, which fills a room with 8,192 virtual microphones.

Calibration for the HDL300 system is automatic – change the room layout or seating arrangements and it adjusts accordingly.   And installation couldn’t be easier. Hang the HDL300 on the wall with two screws in less than 30 minutes.  Then simply use with your preferred conferencing platform, with no need for any driver installation.

8,192 virtual microphones

Powered by Nureva™ Microphone Mist™ technology, the HDL300 system fills a room with 8,192 virtual microphones processing sound in the same way people’s brains do. In conversation, the brain filters noises and distractions to focus on what is being said. Through advanced signal processing algorithms, this effect is replicated by intelligently focusing on what the person wants to hear and reducing all other noise. Every one of the thousands of microphones is always on, even with multiple people in the room talking and moving. No matter where the speaker is standing or how they move, a microphone will pick up their voice.

Group discussion with the clearest sound – or tailored audio pick up when needed

The system’s custom audio processing unit is capable of handling 15,000 MIPS, and this power is used to create a quality listening experience for remote participants by way of the virtual microphones. The solution has continuous self-calibration to adjust to the optimum setting for any room layout. Incorporates simultaneous echo cancellation, position-based automatic gain control and sound masking to deliver the clearest sound.  And when you only want to hear the presenter – for lecture capture for example – simply switch on Active Zone Control with one touch.

THE FUTURE OF COLLABORATION NEVER SOUNDED SO CLEAR

Supporting student collaboration and remote participation is easy with a carefully considered high-quality audio delivered by a next-generation audio conferencing system. This plug and play solution provides a seamless, frictionless experience for all participants and can easily be linked to other common Communications platforms, such as Skype. Below par audio will only disengage students and hamper collaboration. With the HDL300, every element of the group discussion will be captured and students will be switched on, tuned in and heard clearly, whichever room they’re in.

  • Suits any room layout – auto calibration adjusts to optimum setting automatically
  • Integrates seamlessly with universities’ existing Unified Comms platforms
  • Discussions can be captured from anywhere – the back of the room, in front of a display or from a different location
  • Creates flexible spaces – Wall mounted so no cables or table devices
  • Active Zone Control means you can switch microphones on and off for tailored pick up with one touch

Develop Collaboration in Higher Education

The Challenge

Collaboration – it plays a pivotal role in today’s higher educational environments. A collaborative approach to learning develops students’ ‘soft skills’, preparing them for employment. What’s more, it delivers a positive learning experience for students. Forward-thinking educators are investing in technology to better prepare students for the workplace. For this digitally-savvy generation, could introducing familiar technology be the common-sense solution to engage and encourage students on their collaborative journey?

  • Improve collaboration - whether in classrooms, lecture groups or with other remotely based universities 
  • Bring a greater focus on project-based and student-led learning
  • Maximise students' existing digital skills using technology based on familiar tools
  • Equip graduates with a broad skillset, leaving them fully prepared for the working world

Why teach students to be collaborative?

When students engage in peer-to-peer education and group activities they develop skills and traits that are crucial for the workplace. Higher Education must play a role in introducing the technology that complements traditional teaching methods. In doing so, educators can take students’ creativity, critical thinking and collaboration to the next level.

Studies show that many graduates lack the vital ‘soft skills’ to help them thrive in the working world. Self-awareness, problem-solving, interpersonal skills and teamwork. All skills that can be achieved through collaboration in education.

Now, there are new ways to educate and inspire the next generation of employees. And there is new collaboration technology to help educators reach that goal.

A lesson in collaboration

When collaboration is introduced in higher education it demands that students are ‘active’ rather than ‘passive’ learners, helping to develop those all-important ‘soft skills’. Across all levels of education, interactive learning focuses on the student’s experience of the curriculum, rather than the teacher’s presentation of it. The right technology encourages group working and peer to peer assessment and drives that shift towards more project-based and student-led learning.

Student-led learning

The Nureva Span collaboration system combines cloud-hosted software with unique ultra-wide projection based hardware to bring a different approach to how technology can be utilised in education. Rather than the traditional set up of a screen or whiteboard being the main display at the front of the room, teachers and students can work together on Span’s huge interactive canvas, sharing ideas from their devices and engaging in meaningful communication.

Creative Working

Visualising information on a large surface and seeing it all at one time is an intuitive way for people to work together and can assist in many learning situations. The system’s fully interactive SSI projectors (choose either the ultrawide 16:6 or full-HD 16:9) can be linked together to create a panoramic workspace that makes it easy to organise content. This rich combination of visualisation and interaction fuels creativity and collaboration in the classroom.

Collaborative Classrooms

Span software takes the paper tools students are used to – sticky notes, pencil sketches, flip charts – and transforms them into flexible digital versions that enhance the creative process. The expansive virtual canvas can be opened to share ideas, with no barriers or distractions to hold back progress. The cloud-based platform means everyone can create, edit and organise their contribution in real time, at any time.

Why the Nureva Span System?

The adoption rate is growing rapidly, with several forward-thinking, global universities investing in Span to inspire students. From Germany’s Macromedia University and TU Delft University in the Netherlands, to the University of Missouri College of Education and the UK’s London Metropolitan University. Nureva Span can help every student develop the skills they need for future success. Learners can capture their thoughts on personal devices, share them on an expansive canvas and then work with their peers to deepen understanding. Whether it’s to amplify the student’s voice or build more collaboration into PBL, Span is a technological solution that could provide the extra resource needed to improve collaboration for the next generation of employees.

  • Contribute to the digital canvas from any device at any time
  • Transforms walls in classrooms into a panorama of digital workspace
  • Enables students to work independently or in small groups
  • Creates opportunities to develop soft skills and prepare them for employment
  • Allows collaboration within lecture groups or between universities in any location

Nureva™ Span™ takes students into the workplace

The Challenge

The teaching of industry-used business processes to university students demands a collaborative environment to demonstrate methods, develop solutions and tackle challenges. With a focus on nurturing transferrable skills, a prime objective for universities is to have curriculums and classrooms that reflect real-life working practices. So how can universities support the teaching of STEM subjects and help students gain a greater understanding of common business processes? Could technology provide the perfect platform and give students the vital skills to take them from college into the corporate world?

  • Create an immersive and interactive learning experience for business, IT and engineering students
  • Support educators teaching processes such as Agile, Scrum, Lean, Six Sygma and Kanban
  • Develop students' hands-on experience of using technology to solve problems and develop solutions

HOW CAN TECHNOLOGY DRIVE TALENT IN UNIVERSITY STUDENTS?

Business processes are a core part of the many specialist STEM courses. The right technological solutions will complement traditional teaching methods and improve student’s understanding of the subject matter. The technology can integrate easily into the existing university set up – the theoretical element of the module stays the same and the practical side will be brought to life as a familiar paper-based processes are digitised.

Prepare students for the modern workplace

The Nureva Span Solution

The Nureva™ Span™ visual collaboration system makes it easy for students to work together effectively and makes life easier for educators teaching business processes. The unique cloud-based solution provides an interactive digital canvas ideal for a university setting. With Span, the entire business process can be visualised, students can share content from any device, convert paper-based business templates and upload relevant images to become truly immersed in the method.

Business Processes

STEM subjects are a central plank in developing the UK’s skills base and the focus is on universities to nurture the next generation of business people. Methods such as Agile, Scrum, Lean, Six Sygma and Kanban are widely-used in all sectors and students can engage with these methods and develop life-long skills with the aid of digital collaboration technology. Any existing business process on the curriculum can be digitised using a solution specifically designed for collaborative learning.

How does it work?

  • The Nureva™ Span™ system creates a cloud-based collaboration space to streamline the process of developing solutions and problem-solving.
  • The expansive digital canvas can be accessed as easily on the walls as from any hand-held device.
  • Large interactive walls are created by the system’s panoramic SSI projectors – in either ultrawide 16:6 or full-HD 16:9 formats.
  • Canvases are automatically saved and can be easily exported at any time as PDF or Excel® files.

Why the Nureva Span System?

IMPROVE STUDENT OUTCOMES WITH SPAN

Project-heavy business topics demand a great deal of physical space, Span reduces that need and opens up an entire interactive area for learning. The university environment will mimic a real-life workplace with students collaborating and working through problems and educators keeping track of their progress. The intuitive solution is easy to use – it takes familar paper-based processes and transports them into the digital realm.

The content of STEM courses is ever-evolving and with a technological tool designed to meet the needs of students and educators, universities have a forward-thinking solution ready to support teachers and prepare students for the working world.

  • Collaborate using Smartphones and tablets, laptops, Chromebooks™ and other computers
  • All information in one cloud-based location. Canvases can be duplicated, making it easy to access earlier versions and track progress
  • Encourage critical thinking as students work together to define problems and devise solutions
  • Visualise methods and notes, intelligent templates and images to easily assess the process

The Challenge

The latest research suggests that two-thirds of Higher Education students don’t feel they have the skills to succeed in the working world. While colleges and universities explore ways to improve students’ job prospects and make them employment-ready, active learning has been identified as one of the keys to help prepare students for the workplace. The challenge for Higher Education institutions is to create the right environment, one that encourages this different style of learning. With limited budgets and minimal available downtime, is there a simple, cost-effective solution that could convert rooms on campus into active learning spaces?

  • Develop students' 'soft' skills and encourage critical thinking, creativity and problem-solving
  • Transform existing spaces into active learning environments
  • Support educators in developing their students' workplace skills
  • Modernise the traditional classroom set up and complement teaching methods

A different approach

With active learning, the emphasis is on students ‘doing’ rather than passive-consuming information. This helps to develop skills that are hard to hone in traditional classroom environments. As the focus shifts from the professor to the student, making the necessary changes may have potential pitfalls. In the lecture hall set-up, professors could find it difficult to engage students and place them at the centre of learning. On the other side, if a cutting-edge new space is designed for technology instead of pedagogy, it may be a wasted investment. For active learning to truly take hold, higher education institutions need to look at the whole picture and consider the students, the spaces, the tools and the technology.

Experts say go active

NACE (National Association of College and Employers) has identified active learning as one of the keys to preparing students for the workplace. Active learning, at its best, is motivating, meaningful and collaborative. It gives students hands-on practice at the skills they need – including critical thinking, creativity and problem-solving. To pave the way for a better education, a growing number of institutions are investing in spaces to enable this different kind of teaching and learning. The most effective active learning classrooms all have on thing in common – a clear focus on learning goals and student needs, which every time in the space reflect.

Active learning develops core soft skills

For colleges and universities looking to redesign classrooms to support active learning, new technology products, like Nureva Wall and Span Workspace, make it easier for educators to transform any space. The Nureva solutions are a natural fit for educators who want to bring active learning into their classrooms as the unique combination of cloud-based canvases, individual contributions from personal devices and expansive displays creates an ideal environment for collaborative learning. Now, students can use their hands to physically interact with content on a large digital canvas, grouping, combining and adding to ideas as they go. They can also contribute information and ideas from their laptops or personal devices from anywhere, at any time.

The right tools can engage and empower students in many ways, which is why more and more educators are incorporating technology into active learning spaces. These solutions make it simple and quicker for breakout groups to work together using shared digital tools and also help to reach disengaged students, giving them a different way to take part in group discussions. Cloud-based collaboration tools create opportunities for both synchronous and asynchronous collaborative work and ultimately make it easier for educators to develop students’ skills to prepare them for the modern workplace once they graduate.

In active learning environments, students need to have enough room to visualise ideas and plans, rather than the ‘old school’ solution covering walls with sticky notes and using charts of paper, interactive working walls like the Nureva Wall will help students to use images, templates and more to plan and complete their work. All the complex information can now be displayed on digital sticky notes and projected on the interactive surface. As the software is cloud-based and accessible on familiar devices, students can use their laptops, tablets or phones to contribute, create and share information inside and outside of the active learning space.

Why Nureva

Today’s employers look for graduates who can collaborate, communicate solve problems and make decisions. Active learning is a key way for postsecondary students to hone all the skills they need to survive and thrive in the workplace. Nureva has created technology solutions that supports institutions as they move to this approach. The company’s Nureva Wall and Span Software combine to create powerful physical and virtual collaboration spaces that are ideal for active learning in Higher Education. The Nureva Wall gives groups unprecedented space to take learning deeper – with 7′ 6″ (2.30m) to 60′ (18.29m) of digital space and advanced multi-touch. Span Workspace accelerates collaboration and strengthens learning on a shared canvas where everyone can post notes and images, share screens and develop templated and more. Nureva’s visual collaboration solutions will give students an extra boost as they solve problems, share ideas and create together – helping them to build the vital skills for career success.

Lean Software Development for the Digital Generation

The Challenge

One of the biggest hurdles for many organisations is transforming existing working practices and fostering the required culture of responsiveness needed for the Lean Software Development method. Adopting the method is only the first step. Translating the processes into a working environment means that businesses need to advocate adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, and continuous improvement, as well as encourage a rapid and flexible response to change.

  • Deliver a marked increase in quality and speed of project delivery
  • Reduce cost and complexity
  • Suport an integrated, efficient and cross-functional workforce
  • Create a highly collaborative, supportive working environment

The Method. Made in Manufacturing, Successful in Software Development

The method has brought great clarity and success to the global IT industry and is based on original lean manufacturing principles pioneered by Toyota, adapted for the software development domain. The term lean software development was first documented in a book written by Mary Poppendieck and Tom Poppendieck, which stated traditional lean principles, together with a set of 22 ‘tools’ that are compared to corresponding agile practices.

The conceptual framework is made up of different values and principles specific to software development under which requirements and solutions evolve through the collaborative effort of self-organised, cross-functional teams.

Seven Principles

The conceptual framework is made up of different values and principles specific to software development under which requirements and solutions evolve through the collaborative effort of self-organised, cross-functional teams. The seven principles are ‘eliminate waste’, ‘amplify learning’, ‘decide as late as possible’, ‘deliver as fast as possible’, ‘empower the team’, ‘build integrity in’ and ‘see the whole’.

The digital post-it notes

In lean software development, businesses tend to use paper-based templates and post-it notes to track status and progress. This has proved to be a challenge in the modern world with multi-site and multi-national businesses running multiple projects. Many forward thinking companies are exploring digital solutions to support their lean software development practices and provide the ultimate collaborative environment for their development teams

Design thinking

Nureva’s Span system helps software development teams to visualise their workflow as they collaborate and keep them on track and aligned, whether in the same office or distributed across the world. Span is the digital solution to sticky-note walls, providing walls of space on an industry-leading panoramic display with software an expansive digital workspace. Teams can interact, share and iterate ideas and even capture notes and images as artefacts that can be edited and manipulated on the canvas. As Span works in the cloud, team members can contribute from their own devices from any location and update the canvas in real-time.

Moving from paper to digital collaboration without disruption

The Challenge

It’s a debate that many businesses face as they ponder the possibilities of digital transformation. How can the benefits of greater collaboration be embraced without losing all paper-based processes? The business value of improving collaborative opportunities may be obvious, however, there seems to be a degree of apprehension when it comes to transferring to digital. One major barrier to change is workplace culture and the reluctance to introduce new technology for fear of disrupting tried and tested processes. Organisations want to take small steps towards a new working world rather than a giant leap to overhaul existing practices.

  • Support the move from paper to digital collaboration without disruption
  • Increase collaboration using familiar processes
  • Deliver a significant increase in active collaboration
  • Support the visualising and sharing data quickly and effectively

Taking paper-based processes into the digital age

Typical processes we see in businesses all over the world involve teams sticking post-it notes and paper on the wall to create an immersive but very limited visual process. From designers and architects to management consultants and software developers, when visual data is key, this has become a tried and tested method of teams’ collaborating and sharing ideas.

Create and build

The Nureva Span collaboration solution makes it easy for groups to collaborate on a scale that nurtures deeper engagement with content and with each other. It takes the paper tools businesses are used to – sticky notes, pencil sketches, flip charts – and transforms them into flexible digital versions to enhance the creative process. The expansive virtual canvas can be used to share ideas and everyone can create, edit and organise their contributions in real time – whether they’re in the room or at any location around the world.

Ideas and inspiration

When businesses need to be immersed in visual data, the latest software solutions offer a technological version of the sticky note wall. Employees can work either directly on the wall or from their chosen digital device, from any location in the world, via an app. The software solutions effectively have the ability to transform company walls into expansive, digital workspaces

Making digital signage cost effective for retailers

The Challenge

Large retailers are fully embracing the digital signage trend, investing their marketing budgets in the latest display technologies in a bid to attract more customers and enhance the ‘in store’ experience. Corporate designers are busy creating vivid display content to support their brand campaigns and achieve the maximum impact from their digital signage solutions. While global retailers have been quick to invest, can digital signage work for retailers in the SME space, with limited budgets and a lack of professional support to create the dynamic content?

  • Give SMEs access to cost effective digital signage solutions
  • Increase brand awareness and improved customer buying experience
  • Measure ROI and growth in sales
  • Be an easy to use and intuitive system that negates the need for professional expertise

A digitally connected experience for customers
