Presentation given at the Service Design in Government conference in London on 20 March 2015.
Over the past couple of years, a number of teams across the Scottish Government have used a design approach in various areas of policy development and service delivery. We wanted to evaluate how design has contributed to this ‘Scottish Approach’ to government. Are there aspects of design that compliment and challenge our current approach? Where does design differ from the improvement methodology? We also wanted to reflect on the conditions needed for a successful design project.
