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.
