Digital Revolution

Through a case study of the Ministry of Defence (MOD), this session will cover the challenges of applying the digital revolution in a large and hierarchical organisation. It will outline the digital journey that MOD has embarked upon, including changes to services and information, people and skills, organisation, processes, ways of working and the uses of data.

DVLA's Digital Journey

The presentation will explore the recent history of digital development at the DVLA identifying how digital transformation has aided the citizen and industry; how it has assisted in realising efficiencies and how it has had a transformational effect on the organisation in general.

The presentation will also look to the near future and set out the Agency's strategic direction over the next few years and its plans to truly transform into a digital organisation – looking primarily at its services; its organisational structure; its service provisions; efficiency realisation and the skills and capabilities of its staff.

The final consideration before questions is the longer term environment and customer requirements particularly in light of technological advancements and how they may impact the organisation

Turning a strategy into reality from document to delivery

How do you turn a strategy into reality? How do you move from a document to delivery? What is it that helps a department shift from having a nice shiny new document to actually changing and delivering?

In November 2014, the Board of the Food Standards Agency agreed an ambitious new strategy for 2015-20. The journey since then has involved more documents (a five-year strategic plan and a business plan) but also new performance measures, new projects, new people, new training, new methods of engagement, and a renewed focus on delivering the best outcomes for consumers.

Value chain mapping: the key to successful digital transformation

A practical demonstration of the benefits of using Wardley Mapping to map user needs when developing a digital transformation strategy. Wardley Mapping, developed by Professor Simon Wardley, holds out the promise of giving one situational awareness when one is producing a new digital strategy, developing a new project or planning a new campaign. No successful general would fight a battle without a map showing the locations and strength of the opposition. Yet many in government and business embark on strategy or product development without this vital intelligence. We have found the technique invaluable at the Department for Transport in developing our new digital strategy. We have also used it to help decide how best to operate our public sector telecoms for the strategic.

The Drivers for IM Strategy

In July 2014 Ofqual, the qualifications regulator a non-ministerial government department with 200 staff, commissioned a review of its IT provision to set the direction for the next 3 years. A CIO was recruited to deliver the new strategy. The strategy advocated a cloud-based IT architecture which was delivered in the early part of 2015 using an agile approach by a joint supplier/Ofqual team. Building on this flexibility a project was commissioned for a new regulatory IT system, out of the box and cloud based to replace the existing bespoke system using an agile approach.

The presentation will set out drivers for the Ofqual IM strategy, the use of agile to deliver a cloud IT infrastructure (9 months' work delivered in just 3 months) using the cloud as a foundation to build a new regulatory IT system, progress with lessons learnt to date and the challenges of using an agile approach successfully.

Group 2 - Interactive Group Discussion ‘Using data and information to support stronger financial planning’

Pragmatic approaches to budget planning can serve an organisation fairly well when funding and income levels move only marginally.

But to be ready to advise stakeholders on the implications of more significant changes requires reliable models to be built that draw on credible evidence of what drives demand for services - and what drives the costs of delivering them. The choices may not be easier – but they'll be based on a sounder footing.

This interactive workshop will try and draw across different sector experiences of developing tools for financial planning and analysis to stimulate thinking for those organisations who know they need to do more of this – but struggle to find a way in.

Designing for delivery - new perspectives on implementation and execution

This presentation will look at the work undertaken in DfE to understand how best to execute our delivery priorities. Using case study examples to illustrate our approach, it will show how DfE is:

  • utilising new tools in a policy context to design for delivery
  • designing good signals to execute delivery in a school led system and manage risk
  • integrating digital thinking
  • developing the department's capability to align to the needs of the education system
  • integrating the risk landscape to join up delivery priority, education system and organisational risk
  • utilising Policy Tests and Delivery tests to join up both elements of our work
  • developing different approaches to problem solving at a delivery priority level
