1413: Esri UK - Geographic Information Systems (GIS),
Play • 21 mins

Esri UK provides world-class geographic information systems (GIS) and has the single largest pool of GIS expertise in the UK. Every day millions of decisions are powered by GIS, helping businesses become more profitable and public service more efficient through a better understanding of location analytics.

The UK is in the midst of a housing crisis, with a lack of appropriate homes keeping people off the property ladder – and many stuck in unsuitable homes. Despite good intentions from those at both a central and local Government level to provide sufficient affordable and social housing, the slow progress made over recent years makes it clear that we need improved technology and new tools to model a way forward.

The government recently published the UK Geospatial Strategy, which recognizes the potential of location intelligence technology for the UK economy. Under Housing and Local Planning, the strategy states that “Innovation in property-related technology…is transforming how developers find land and evaluate building potential, how local authorities and residents approach planning, and how homes are bought, sold or rented”.

There are three key areas where location intelligence can help local authorities and housing associations improve the provision of housing: mapping local infrastructure, identifying the right schemes/projects for local needs and assessing housing capacity.

Charles Kennelly, chief technology officer, Esri UK, joins me on Tech Talks Daily to talk about all this and much more.

TEI 317: Culture, teams, and leadership
Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you the next episode of... The Everyday Innovator with host Chad McAllister, PhD. The podcast is all about helping people involved in innovation and managing products become more successful, grow their careers, and STANDOUT from their peers. About the Episode:  This podcast is getting a new name to better align with its purpose of helping product managers become product masters. That new name is Product Masters Now. You don’t need to do anything to keep listening, but I want you to know the name change is coming in a few weeks, and it will show up in your podcast player not as The Everyday Innovator but as Product Masters Now. This is another episode in the series on a product management body of knowledge curated by the Product Development and Management Association (PDMA). If you are unfamiliar with PDMA, it is the longest running volunteer-led professional association for product managers, existing since 1976. I’ve been publishing this series every-other-week, starting with episode 307, which was an introduction to the body of knowledge. Today we cover topics related to culture, teams, and leadership, which are essential to forming and maintaining an innovative environment that enables, encourages, and rewards product management and innovation processes and practices. Our guest is Dr. Teresa Jurgens-Kowal, founder of Global NP Solutions, which helps individuals and organizations learn, adopt, transform, and sustain innovation. Previously, she worked in R&D, process technology development, and as an internal innovation expert at ExxonMobil Chemical Company.
