In these two Sprints the highlights were, advancing the research for the single sign-on (SSO) requirements and creating mobile designs for the service.

A reminder of the project's focus: this beta project is focused on enhancing existing and implementing a new technology at the RSA called Circle, to help improve how Fellows engage and contribute to the RSA work and collaborate with other Fellows.

Plans for research and testing

We made good progress during Sprints 10 & 11 with planning the research. 

We finalised the development of the research and testing plans which cover:

  • key activities, dates and team members involved
  • plans for recruitment of Fellows and RSA Network Leads to take part in the research/testing
  • communication plans to plan and schedule research sessions with the participants
  • content plans to develop onboarding guidelines for Network Leads and Fellows as well as documentation needed for research/testing delivery
  • setting up of the Circle spaces for testing, and
  • design of surveys

Next steps

The core priority for the upcoming Sprint 12 is to focus on planning and delivering
the research, testing and engagement activities.
