Blockchain Deployment Toolkit
19 June 2020
A Reader in Logistics and Operations Management from Cardiff University has played a vital role in the development of the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Blockchain Deployment Toolkit.
Dr Yingli Wang, a Cardiff Business School expert in distributed ledger technology and blockchain for supply chains, worked with over 100 professionals and practitioners from across the globe to bring together tools, resources, and know-how to organizations undertaking blockchain projects.
The Redesigning Trust Toolkit guides organisations through the development and deployment of new blockchain solutions to address their business challenges.
For more than a year, Dr Wang together with the team of collaborators analysed real projects and identified key lessons to help organizations embed best practices and avoid possible obstacles in deployment of distributed ledger technology.
Dr Wang said: “The process of developing the toolkit was quite intense and underwent many rounds of iteration. My role in its development was in facilitating workshops and subsequently leading an independent evaluation of the toolkit via a number of pilot use cases. We piloted in a variety of different contexts with organisations developing blockchain solutions for their supply chains, including the Abu Dhabi Digital Authority, Hitachi, Saudi Aramco as well as a number of SMEs...”
“So, it’s really gratifying to see this toolkit out there for practitioners and most importantly organisations to reap the rewards from,” she added.
Launched by WEF in April 2020, the first-of-its kind toolkit provides comprehensive insights and key guidelines on topics such as risk, consortia formations, security and ecosystem collaboration. Divided into fifteen modules, the resource can be accessed online.
In its role as the International Organisation for Public-Private Cooperation, WEF engages the foremost political, business, cultural and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.
