James set out the initial plans for hacking the bureaucracy in this post:

Since then, a small group of us have been meeting — well, Google Hangout-ing* — to discuss when and where the hack should take place, and the themes that we could cover up to and on the day.

We’re pleased to announce the bureaucracy hack will take place on 3rd July (09.30–16.30) at The Tomlinson Centre in Hackney.

As for the themes — or problems — that we’ll be tackling, here are the few we’ve set out to date:

Cate and Henry wrote about the difficulty of using online collaboration tools when working across organisational boundaries:

James wrote about hacking business cases, and has already created a couple of super-useful templates:

And Luke wrote about a theory he and I have — that reducing duplication in technical and data governance can speed up delivery:

The team has created a backlog of other potential themes to tackle on the day, and in the spirit of working in the open our Trello board is public — so if you would like to comment, or contribute new ideas, jump in!

We’re really looking forward to 3rd July when we get to #HackTheSystem. Wanna join us? You can apply for tickets using this form
