GDS-type approach to building services
Following the footsteps of the Government Digital Service (GDS), we adopt a similar approach to building services. Our journey begins with thorough discovery to understand the needs of our users. We then move on to the Alpha phase, where we build prototypes and test them rigorously. In the Beta phase, we release the service to real users, gathering valuable feedback to iterate and improve. Even in the “Live” phase, we remain committed to continuously adapting and evolving based on user needs.
Exploring the boundaries with hackathons
In our pursuit of continuous improvement, we regularly organise hackathons to explore innovative ways to solve real problems. These events bring together our talented team and encourage them to think outside the box. By fostering a culture of creativity and collaboration, we aim to uncover groundbreaking solutions that will shape the future of digital services in Northumberland.
