Why delivery cuts the government policy Gordian knot... "Ministers are inundated with policy directives and advice, most of it of the risk-averse variety. When it comes to digital, the voices of security and the voices of procurement dominate policy recommendations. The voice of the user barely gets a look-in."

"This kind of change is very hard to get rolling and many times harder than that to sustain. I watch, then, with fascination wondering if this is change that will stick and, especially, if it is change that will pervade across government."

"The GDS has the potential to change how government serves citizens. This is a story about the little bit I did about a year ago. I’m quite proud of it." And a good postscript.

"[At the Cabinet Office and GDS] we have a pretty established and successful agile software delivery engine. Whilst it is relatively new it has become a firmly established way of working beyond the core delivery teams, and lean/agile methods are used across GDS in a variety of teams. However, we interact with other programmes and projects and need to be accountable when we spend public money. That gives us a challenge in terms of needing heavier processes and being able to articulate what we do in good old milestone, cost and risk ways."

Strong but measured words from an ex-government contractor, that evoke strong responses: "The Single Government Domain policy, indeed GDS itself, is about control. It is “we will do it for you”, not “we will help you do it”. It is about managing the output of institutions that might "keep in check an overmighty State". It is anti-web and it is anti-democracy and I cannot remain quiet about it any longer."

"Starting next week, I join the Government Digital Service. You might already have heard of GDS and the single government domain (GOV.UK beta) project, which is rather exciting. If not, here’s Danny O’Brien writing about poacher turned gamekeeper, Tom Loosemore, which should set the scene nicely." Sounds like Tom is very much the poacher, as GDS hoovers up more talent.

"GOV.UK is a watershed in how government approaches Web design, both in terms of what you see online and how it was developed. The British team of developers, designers and managers behind the platform collaboratively built GOV.UK in-house using agile development and the kind of iterative processes one generally only sees in modern Web design shops."

"About 10 minutes ago we released the next step on our journey toward a single domain for government – and it has been driven entirely by focusing on user needs: creating simpler, quicker, easier to find information and transactions."

"The GOV.UK beta builds on years of work and learning across government and outside it about how to deliver great services to users. [...] It’s important to remember though – GOV.UK is just a beta test. It is not finished and may not be accurate and completely up to date – if you’ve got actual business to conduct with Government you should continue do it via Directgov."
