Barvas helps to bring clarity to strategy planning for schools.

Peter Shrubsall has been avid MindGenius user since 2009. He has used the product extensively in his role as Managing Director at the engineering firm, Vortok, where he utilised MindGenius to plan complex design projects for the rail industry.

Moving to Barvas

In his current role as STEM ambassador and Chairman of Governors at Cullompton Community College, Peter has been tasked with the Academisation process for schools in England. This is a similarly complex issue to his previous role, and Peter has been challenged with leading the development of a clear strategy for the school. Therefore, he decided to use the project as an opportunity to get fully involved in the Barvas Beta programme.

“A very powerful tool”

Communication is key

Information is effectively communicated through Barvas as it is quick and easy to flip from the high level to finer detail so you can focus on the right information and avoid overload.

Having mapped out the complexities of the environment Peter has since been able to share and collaborate with the Head Teacher and other Governors on Barvas enabling him to communicate the challenge and plan the way ahead.

Task Management

With the implementation of the task and project management features that allow you to create and assign actions from your original document, task management even easier. Because of this Peter believes the project will be more successfully delivered.

Peter believes in Barvas

Peter commented “Barvas is becoming a very powerful tool, I chose to invest in Barvas because it enables one to visualise complex scenarios and relationships, prioritise, categorise and show the impact of decisions clearly. All the necessary notes and support documentation are accessible at every point without cluttering the overall picture. I have found no-other web-based system that can provide such facilities”
