DesignGov has four workstreams of activity
- Demonstration projects – demonstrating how design and innovation can be collaboratively applied to problems affecting multiple areas of the public sector. You can read more about DesignGov’s first project looking at how to dramatically improve business government interactions
- Engagement, education and awareness – building awareness and engagement with design, and increasing the understanding of how to use and apply it within the public sector. You can see some of the events that DesignGov is involved in on the Events Calendar
- Capability building, methodologies and tools – developing the frameworks and common language to underpin use of design across government agencies, creating shared access to tools and capabilities, and building networks and communities of use of design. You can read more about design and DesignGov’s capability building work in the Designing section
- Operating framework, governance and reporting – establishing the operating framework and infrastructure of the DesignGov pilot, capturing and recording the experience of DesignGov as a system-level experiment in the Australian Public Service, and reporting and connecting with the multiple agencies supporting and funding DesignGov.
Due to its experimental nature, DesignGov has a flexible approach as to how these workstreams and associated goals can best be achieved. So if you have an idea, activity, event or problem that you think DesignGov should be involved in, please contact us.
