Description

“We will be optimistic and positive in our approach to our work. We will believe that things can change, and we will take our part in making that happen.”

What this is:

In June 2017 policymakers, service designers, digital professionals and cross-sector experts came together in London to talk about how they could work across disciplines to make government more effective and efficient. This is #OneTeamGov and it’s working to the idea that by bringing teams together to work in a truly multidisciplinary way, we can offer better services to the public, give better advice to ministers and make the civil service more effective and efficient.

A group of cross-sector professionals in Scotland have organised a #OneTeamGovScot event to expand the network. We believe #OneTeamGov can unite networks of people, support us to share skills and learn lessons from each others’ roles and area of expertise.

At all levels, government organisations and departments are in a period of change: devolutions of decision making and involvement are impacting the ways central and local governments have relationships with each other and with citizens. Getting involved in the OneTeamGov community is an opportunity to foster closer working relationships between different job functions across the public, third and private sectors for collaborations and reform; to aid closer working between departments, agencies, public bodies, third sector and members of the public.

What to expect:

  • Active involvement in building on the OneTeamGov network and community for people who are passionate about reforming public services in Scotland so they better meet the needs of citizens

  • An ‘unconference’ format where we collectively set the agenda on the day

  • Connections with people from all sectors doing innovative work for public services, finding and exploring new ideas to solve policy, delivery or improvement issues you are facing

  • A safe space to break down barriers between policy, delivery, design and technology

Why this matters:

The ways in which people live their lives and connect with their public services is changing; the way services are designed and delivered should change in response. Making better outcomes and addressing difficult issues is a collective effort because citizens are impacted by policies and access services that cut across organisations or departments. OneTeamGov reminds us that not everyone comes from the same place, that people not like ourselves are important parts of solutions and that community encourages respect.
