This publication is an unofficial collection of open stories on the realities of designing a digital government, shared by the people who work there. The best place to read officially published blog posts is GOV.UK blogs (https://www.blog.gov.uk). Sometimes a post isn’t appropriate for the official blogs, or it is a personal outlook. This Medium publication intends to capture these personal stories in one place. I anticipate this publication will be of interest to others working, or interested in working in government on digital transformation. Stories will never be locked behind member only access.
