“GOV.UK’s best feature is nothing we’ve built so far. It’s our commitment to continuous improvement.” GOV.UK isn’t finished – another post I wrote for the day job.
In January 2015 I led a month-long event for GOV.UK’s product and infrastructure teams. I’ve written about it here: GOV.UK’s firebreak: why and how we spent a month working differently and was interviewed about it for the FT’s Smarter Working column.
In the summer of 2014 I led a piece of work to introduce a product roadmap, aligning the work of lots of separate agile software teams and improving comms with stakeholders. I wrote about it here on the Mind the Product blog: Experiments in roadmapping at GOV.UK.
This is a talk I gave at London’s Dare conference, in September 2013, about culture change and why digital people should be proud revolutionaries.
So I’m not saying I’m the Daniel Boone of digital government or anything. But I was there when things got started in the noughties and got amongst it.
