To redesign its Request a bin service end-to-end, a West Berkshire Council team worked with three departments, the waste contractor and a digital supplier. This blog post describes how strong collaboration led to measurable outcomes and benefits for citizens and government.
At GDS we want to help all of government collaborate as effectively as possible on services. One of the ways we’ve been doing this is by establishing work on Service Communities. Here is a step-by-step guide to setting up your Service Community and making it sustainable.
The service assessments service is one of the largest services that GDS offers to the rest of government. Leighton Mitchell and Sanjay Poyzer looked at the operational efficiency of the current process and fixing the basics before putting themselves in a position to measure efficiency and success in a meaningful way.
A service community is a network of people from across the public sector who work together to design and deliver an end-to-end service. As part of the ‘start a business’ community, the FSA and BEIS worked together to improve things for users.
Over the past decade, government has started to adopt a user-centred design approach to shape services for everyone. This post gives an overview of what’s happening across government and what to expect on this blog.
