This month we welcome Matt Jukes. Join us, to hear all about…

Working in the open works

The talk outlines the importance of openness at an individual, team and organisational level in the public service (and beyond) to spread the understanding and acceptance of a ‘modern’ approach (i.e. user driven and agile) and to build trust with the users who get to peek behind the curtain and see how and why decisions are made and that they are made by real people.

Illustrated by examples from the Office for National Statistics, GDS, Parliament, 18F in the US, DTA in Australia, Friends of the Earth, Mozilla, Gitlab, Netflix and more.
