1.2 Determine existing blockchain infrastructure

1.3 Identify data based on existing infrastructure and organisational requirements

1.4 Determine platform and security requirements

2. Plan deployment strategy

2.1 Determine and document deployment plan according to organisational requirements

2.2 Determine and document deployment timelines

2.3 Determine and document impact on organisational operations

3. Implement smart contracts technology

3.1 Deploy technology according to deployment plan

3.2 Determine alignment of technological capabilities against deployment plan

3.3 Determine and apply methods to align smart contract capability against deployment plan

3.4 Create documentation and seek and respond to feedback from required personnel

Foundation Skills

This section describes those language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance but not explicit in the performance criteria.

S KILL 

D ESCRIPTION 

Learning

  • Monitors outcomes of decisions, considering results and identifying key concepts and principles that may be adaptable in the future

Numeracy

  • Uses mathematical formulae to calculate required equipment, undertake measurements and determine response times

Oral communication

  • Obtains information to articulate requirements and responsibilities distinctively using appropriate industry language intended for audience and environment

Reading

  • Recognises and interprets technical, manufacturer and organisational documentation to determine and confirm job requirements

Writing

  • Prepares documentation detailing deployment plan, timelines and impact on organisational operations using appropriate language for intended audience

Planning and organising

  • Operates from a broad conceptual plan, developing the operational detail in stages, regularly reviewing priorities and performance during implementation, and identifying and addressing issues

Problem solving

  • Uses nuanced understanding of context to recognise anomalies and subtle deviations to normal expectations, focusing attention and remedying problems as they arise

Self-management

  • Takes full responsibility for identifying and considering relevant organisational protocols and requirements
  • Uses systematic processes, setting goals, gathering required information and identifying and evaluating options against agreed criteria

Technology

  • Demonstrates a sophisticated understanding of principles, concepts, language and practices associated with the digital world
