I find myself in an interesting position at the moment. A client has just significantly rebooted their portfolio of DDaT activity — leading to a big shake-up of their governance and that opened up an interesting opportunity — they needed an approach to strengthen the Verify aspect of Trust/Verify for digital deliveries and I saw a chance to reimagine the idea of service assessments locally.
This client is Government-adjacent and has close ties to the wider digital gov community but it is exempt from GDS controls — as such it has somewhat gone its own way in its evolution towards becoming an internet-era organisation. While this does create some challenges at times it also opens up these golden opportunities as well.
I am on the record as believing that GDS Service Standard Assessments are a ‘necessary evil’ — in fact I was quoted in this brilliant presentation by Sam, Steve and Clara at Service Design in Government.

Changing perceptions: Disruption Summit Europe
Notbinary is supporting the ‘Exchange’ track at this years ‘Disruption Summit Europe’. The Summit is an event that attracts delegates from retail, finance, manufacturing, media, transportation and insurance. It has not traditionally been somewhere the public service perspective was prevalent. This year though we hope to change that.
