GDS We’ve spent 200 days transforming services Mike Bracken We’ve spent 200 working days transforming government. Mike Beaven, the transformation team and people inside departments around the country have spent a little over a year exploring, prototyping, building and testing digital services that will make it simpler, clearer and faster for users to get what they need from government.

GDS Mike Bracken Home Discovery 3 Finding out what the users need, what to measure and what the constraints are Learn more about the discovery phase Alpha 5 Building a prototype, testing it with users and learning from it Learn more about the alpha phase Beta 16 Scaling up and going public Learn more about the beta phase Live 1 Learning how to continuously improve the live service Learn more about the live phase The Government Digital Strategy and departmental digital strategies commit us to the redesigning and rebuilding of 25 significant ‘exemplar’ services. We’re going to make them simpler, clearer and faster to use. All these are to meet the Digital By Default Service Standard by April 2014 and be completed by March 2015. This dashboard shows you which transactions are in the programme, what progress is being made, and the estimated scale of the digital service. You can read more about the transformation programme on our blog.

46 million users by 2015 By the end of the year the electoral registration exemplar alone will have affected more than 46 million people. Lots of those people will also have used new and improved services being built right now.

£500+ million saved already We’re building those things the right way. We’re saving money, more than £500 million to date, and users are getting better services out of it

96% user satisfaction The waste carrier exemplar has reported that 96% of users are satisfied with it. We’ve also seen something incredible happen with the Lasting Power of Attorney application; the team taking feedback from the public beta needed to have a positive feedback button added to their reporting tools because they were getting so much of it.

Our suppliers used to be here... We can’t do this work alone, and we also couldn’t do it without a wider range of suppliers to work with. Our supply chain used to look like this...

Slide 10 text

Now they’re here... The Digital Services Framework and G-Cloud have helped us break up what parliament referred to as an ‘oligopoly’ of suppliers. We can’t build better services simply by spending more on IT. We have more than enough technology already, and plenty of services that don’t meet the needs of their users.

We’re transforming government We have to remember, we aren’t just fixing websites. We’re transforming government.

Slide 12

Slide 12 text

Open Agile Iterative We’ll only do that if we continue building services the right way. That means making them open - and being open about what we do. Using agile techniques to continually improve these services long after they’ve gone live, iterating all the way.

Slide 13

Slide 13 text

No more Big IT But we’ve also got to be smarter about the things we do build and buy. Contracts shouldn’t lock government into using obsolete technology, and we must be able to improve services quickly in response to changing feedback and user needs.

Slide 14

Slide 14 text

User needs not government needs We do all this by focusing on the needs of users. We have to start with their needs. It’s the first Design Principle for a reason.
