Kanbanising the Scottish Government

A session at Lean Agile Scotland 2015

Thursday 8th October, 2015

11:35am to 12:05pm (GMT)

The Scottish Government is embarking on a number of initiatives aimed to reform the way Scottish citizens engage with government and to renew the democratic processes in Scotland. One of the main initiatives is the mygov.scot programme of work. This digital transformation programme is delivering informational services provided by the Scottish Government from the perspective of the citizen needs.

The mygov.scot programme impacts a complex structure of over 180 public organisations with thousands on civil servants and employees that can be affected by the change in perspective.

Following an initial year full of uncertainty, mistakes and learning, the programme started adopting Kanban in February 2015 to help improve the management and flow of work, improve the decision making processes and transform the ways of working and culture of the programme.

We are in the middle of an ongoing process of learning and adaptation and in this session will share our experiences to date and how some our Kanban-related changes are beginning to generate important results and impacts.
