UK Software Metrics Association 23rd Annual Conference: 21st Century Metrics
Grant Rule: A champion for human potential.
Even though many of us work in a world of analysis, data and detailed measurements, Grant never forgot what it was all for, he challenged everyone to help people do better work, improve themselves along with their companies and societies, to realise their human potential to create possibilities for a better life.
So how do we respond to his challenge? How can we influence companies who are simply concerned with shareholder capital without respect for human capital? How can the UKSMA respond to the challenge when software is at the heart of most of the modern world?
