Braving the elements

Not for for the faint-hearted

This page is rather different in tone from most of the rest of the PILink site.

There we generally attempt to give an otimistic, up-beat and constructive account of how we can use the PIEs idea, and the PIEs 2.0 framework, to understand and develop services.

Here, by contrast, we will be looking at what is wrong with it - where the more awkward or weaker part so ghre analysis are; and where thee is work un-finished

But as you can see, there is no text here yet.  When there is, much of it will probably be taken initially from some others' documents, excerpted and later edited and customised for this page.  Some will come from the PIE leads' advanced training, that we will now probably not have the opportunity to complete. We will need links to some of the videos etc too.

Some will refer to essays in the collection of 'Un-finished business', tpublished in autumn 2023. You can read about the whole collection, and other useful books on PIEs, in the 'PIE publications' pages : HERE
