Editor's Notes

  • Since we last met I’ve been doing a lot of engagement around the vision that we agreed at the last meeting

    I’ve run some more workshops with digital service staff and presented the vision to them

    I’ve been talking to a lot of colleagues in both Houses

    I’ve spoken to a couple of members to get some initial feedback

    And I’ve presented at a number of forums to my peers in other organisations – british council, NHS

    The approach - set out in the timeline
    Targets and actions
    Measures

    And I want to keep reminding myself why we are doing this
