|2022||1||11:30||2C||Online||N/A||How to talk about agile to non-digital audiences|
Digital teams have learned how to do GDS style agile delivery. But there can be difficulty convincing the rest of the organisation – especially decision makers and non-digital teams – if they have little experience with agile. Particularly in local government, or smaller departments. When you can see immediate benefits to adopting waterfall, then discovery, alpha, beta, live phases can seem long-winded, and narratives and terminology around agile methodologies can seem frivolous or impenetrable. Let’s explore how to talk to non-digital people and teams about the benefits of an agile approach.

My pitch: In late January 2021 the UK Government decided to introduce a Managed Quarantine Service for people arriving from Red List countries. A team was quickly created to bring this new service into production for travellers arriving into the UK from 15th February. This multi-disciplinary team took the service from concept to production in two weeks, proving to us all how with the right sponsorship, focus, attitude, drive, and pragmatism it really is possible to deliver an MVP at pace.
In this session I will tell the story of the Managed Quarantine Service and we can discuss how to learn from this experience so that we can deliver other government services at pace.

Our objective is to encourage folks working in government around the world, especially in developing nations, to do one simple thing - join the One Team Gov slack. There's loads of great organisations to connect up global public servants but so far none of them have prioritised real-time chat. We want to build a global community of people discussing their triumphs, issues and questions about policy and delivery - as well as just getting to know each other as people. So far there's a small group of us from the UK and Canada working on this. I'm keen to discuss how we can make it happen.

|2022||1||13:45||3B||Online||N/A||How can we track the unintended consequences of policy actions across the government system? |
Government policies generate strategies and actions (typically within a Ministerial silo) that then have consequences (positive or negative) in other parts of the government system. For example a cost saving action in the Health service could well lead (inadvertently) to a new cost pressure in the Social services sector. Taking a systems view also requires factoring in the various constraints imposed by legislation. Is it possible to model all these inter relationships so that we can see how our proposed policy intervention could impact other parts of the system? I don't know. Shall we try to find out? I propose this session as a thinking experiment and using Immigration policy as an example to keep it a bit focussed and manageable.

So we have the principles, we know the approach, but what do we find if we go a little deeper. At the deepest level, what are the values that underpin this approach?

|2022||1||15:45||5E||Online||N/A||Responsible design and research: is user ‘centred’ the right way to do things? |
Should it be more holistic - what about impact on society, environment, community etc? How can we balance our responsibilities to our users with our impact more broadly?

|2022||1||15:45||5F||Online||N/A||Driving data change through stories. |
A compelling and authentic narrative can help people buy in to any idea, including why an org might need to manage data better. Could a resource pack guiding people to their data story, and how to use it to market data improvements, help? What should go in a “how to own and communicate your data story” pack? How could it be delivered? A discussion about whether this idea is a yay or a ney, and if yay, what it should be(y)

What are your coping mechanisms? How openly can you talk about it? How is your org helping? How can things be improved?

|2022||2||10:30||1A||Online||N/A||Ethical Walls: When should data not be shared? |
Local & Central Government collects lots of data, some of it given voluntarily, some of it required by legislation. Pooling this data gives great power to provide improved services, and to find new and innovative ways of working to meet targets, identify those who require support and promote joined up working. But when should this data not be pooled? Should data required for a benefit application be used to identify housing support needs? Should electoral registration data be used to find unregistered Houses of Multiple Occupation? What should we /not/ do with data!

|2022||2||10:30||1B||Online||N/A||What makes an inclusive culture? An ideas and experiences sharing session. |
I'll be using trello, anyone is welcome to add thoughts there and hopefully it'll act as a resource we can add to in the future.

|2022||2||10:30||1C||Online||N/A||43 Shades of Grey - It’s easy to say everything is perfect. Or everything is terrible. But it’s always FAR more complex than that! |
When we quantify how a whole organisation is doing at something, how do we do it in a way that properly recognises good practice (without over-inflating it) and properly calls out bad practice (without bringing everyone down unfairly)? Can we get a whole organisation view without overinflating extremes or washing out the nuance into a shade of grey? Or are UK Gov organisations just too complex to summarise?

|2022||2||10:30||1D||Online||N/A||GDS got digital first, then service teams, now everyone got it; even HMT, which in the last budget redefined values of variables in UC and defined for DWP by when they'd be set and how... |
What might better/future use of these levers look like?
Some examples of digital levers being used for various purposes (across gov) are in annex 5: https://medconfidential.org/2020/universal-credit/

|2022||2||10:30||1E||Online||N/A||What is (or could be) the metaverse? |
Is there any policy work we should be doing as the concept (and maybe something real) evolves?

|2022||2||10:30||1F||Online||N/A||Breaking down siloes, engaging teams across organisations to help plan and work differently.|
At the UKHO (UK Hydrographic Office) in Taunton, we were tasked with fundamentally changing the way the organisation planned work.
We had to turn a corporate plan with 157 lines of outputs into a more outcome based, adaptive and iterative plan, breaking down the siloes across the org.
We got stuff wrong, we made huge strides forward and it sprung back a little but I think we started to help build a new culture about people, small change, working across disciplines and accepting risk.
Come and share your similar experiences!

|2022||2||11:30||2A||Online||N/A||What's in a name? What are the issues behind "official" domain names? Do we need just one domain to rule them all? |
What problems are caused by multiple domain names? Should we have a free-for-all? Do tiny councils even want to run a website? Come chat about all things domain names - be they .gov.uk, .police.uk, .parliament.uk, .royal.uk etc.

Join me to discuss if we can free this particular information, which is the kind of information that probably does want to be free

|2022||2||11:30||2C||Online||N/A||In June 2021 the Ministry of Justice announced a boost for open justice, with The National Archives (TNA) to publish Court Judgments and Tribunal Decisions from April this year. |
Why now? What's so special about court judgments and why is TNA involved? What are we doing and what are the snags? (NB: there are lots of snags!).
What advice do GovCampers have about building digital services really fast, and then iterating quickly?
Dos / don't / hints / tips / and a chance to generally discuss something really interesting.

|2022||2||11:30||2E||Online||N/A||How do services work better with GDS and GOV.UK? |
I work on Universal Credit, and we use GOV.UK a lot for users at the start of their journeys into Universal Credit. GDS owns the mainstream content on GOV.UK. I sometimes find that different ways of working (#zendesk), lack of domain knowledge and strict rules on proposition and data share can create problems when we're designing end-to-end. How do we work well together to create awesome user journeys, no matter where the start button goes?
