What do you design?
My focus is on value creation. I explore value streams, systems, supply chains and business models that enable greater value to be realised by a firm’s clients and hence bring mutual benefit to the firm.
What do you create?
I create tools and guidance that enable value creation. Often that means understanding what use value means to the customer and what exactly it is the firm is delivering. The two aren’t always well aligned. I am particularly interested in how firms may be ‘good’ at all they do. There is a lot to unpack around that word!
What outputs do you have?
See my publications list. A couple of key useful outputs below.
IoT and personal supply chain data: https://www.emeraldinsight.com/doi/full/10.1108/SCM-10-2015-0386
How to visualise complex images: http://eprints.uwe.ac.uk/34009/1/Parry%20Chapter%20Enterprise%20Imaging%20complete.pdf
Where do we go to follow your work?

My University profile includes lists of papers and my background: https://people.uwe.ac.uk/Person/GlennParry
I put occasional pieces on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/glenn-parry-a44356/
What inspires your work?
I’m in Operations Management and Strategy, but work transdisciplinary, particularly across engineering, computer science, supply chain management and biochemistry.
I love ideas. I have my YouTube channel and also publish a lot of papers as I believe all ideas should be shared and discussed to help them develop and have impact. Personal data should be just that – and the HAT provides a solution that puts the individual in charge, it helps create value, and I think it is good!
I design algorithms that allows individuals and groups to understand how they interact with their environment by analysing their movement patterns
I design metrics of digital assets (including user-generated content, data analytics and information technology) that increase productivity in digital economy.
I am designing a methodology on the HAT using multimedia data which could serve for social sciences.
I design security-focused system and application architectures. I also design semantics and common data vocabularies to ease data integration between systems with different data formats and languages.
I’m a lead UX/UI designer that specialises in working with innovative startups to design clear and simple user experiences across mobile apps and web interfaces
I design markets, economics models, ecosystems, incentives, platforms.
I design the HAT data rights. I investigate the mechanics of information flows within the legal and regulatory framework for complex cyber-physical products.
My focus is on value creation. I explore value streams, systems, supply chains and business models, that enable greater value to realised by a firms clients and hence bring mutual benefit to the firm.
I design modular processes for manufacturing and service organisations with emphasis placed on the integration and use of digital technologies to support these processes.
I design systems, helping people to be more secure in general, and more engaged with computing systems in general, especially with interactions on multimedia data.
A designer and builder of all things digital from websites to digital children’s books.
I design the algorithms and tools in the Smart HAT Engine and ThingEngine to transform HAT and ThingSpace data
I design smart contract applications that can be deployed alternatively on—blockchain, off-blockchain or on hybrid platforms.
I designed the technological architecture of the HAT
I design service ecosystem to increase liquidification and density of resources for optimal value co-creation to serve customer contexts via ontological engineering method.
