Public Digital helped us to understand that digital isn’t only about technology. It’s about how the whole organisation operates, and it starts with culture and processes. We’re seeing real benefits from working in the open. We’re using masterclasses to develop a common base of understanding and language. We have regular show and shares. And a blog site that people from across the organisation contribute to. We are embedding our agile delivery approach to solving customer problems.
