Design of the Year - gov.uk

posted 18 Apr 2013, 01:16 by Jim Cuthbert

Congratuations to our client, the Government Digital Service, for winning not only the Digital Award at the Design Museum Designs of the Year Awards 2013, but also the main Design of the Year award for the gov.uk website.
Who would have thought any part of the Civil Service would win a design award, far less a unit of the Cabinet Office?
GDS may be government, but not as we know it.  It's mission to connect with citizens is driving a revolution across government in the relationship with people.  GDS's commitment to good design is central to their successful approach to digital communications.  They are also up for awards for the content writing - good design and quality content.  Next will be new transactional services simplifying the business of dealing with government.
Not everyone will be "digital by default", but by automating the relationship for the majority, it saves money and frees precious resources for those who need personal contact.

Webinar - Reducing Risk using Agile

posted 1 Mar 2012, 06:20 by Jim Cuthbert   [ updated 7 Jan 2013, 08:21 ]

Keith Newton presented a live webinar,  Reducing Risk using Agile change methods

Keith looked at the research into why change projects fail, or under deliver.  He was able to distil the findings to three core causes:
  • Want and commitment for the change are missing
  • The design – reality gap is too big
  • Not enough attention is paid to the “people issues”
For each of these issues, Agile methods offer demonstrably better risk management than conventional change and project management approaches.  The underlying thinking and attitudes of agile ensure that the risk factors are largely prevented, and also that the risk factors are surfaced earlier, which enables routine management of risks within time and budget constraints.  The impact of risks is therefore reduced, not by expensive mitigations, contingencies, or change controls, but by doing the change project right, by using agile methods.

The webinar was hosted by our good friends at Dunstan Thomas.
