As academics we tend to excel at understanding and measuring the impact of our research within academic circles and our teaching on our students. We are also very good at adapting to those measurement instruments, as witnessed by the intense debate and behavioural change instruments such as the ERA cause. Stepping outside academia and looking for industry or organisational impact beyond the laboratory and classroom is something that is less often measured, but is something I consider vital for a College of Engineering and Computer Science. In this talk, I will discuss a current research project that is leading to commercialisation outcomes and a teaching initiative that is having strategic impact on ICT businesses and examine lessons from the experience gained.
