As 2014 draws to a close, it’s a good opportunity to reflect on the last 'season' of activity to embed digital, and provide an update on our Digital Fortnight activities
A hot topic at a recent get together of the BIS policy profession was the opportunities and challenges of policy making in a digital world.
Last week Denise Shaw, Communications Manager for the Growth Vouchers programme, spent some time with the digital team to develop her skills.
Guest post by Karen Folkes from the Digital and Policy Working Group.
The BIS Digital and Policy Working Group has had 2 very well attended and successful meetings now.
As a team, we put a lot of emphasis on sharing what goes wrong just as often as what goes right. But sometimes it's important to look back over a year and see just how far we've come.
On 25 February we held the second meeting of the BIS digital in policy group.
At BIS we've been working hard on applying digital to policy making projects, with some success.
I love this case study from the Foreign Office, because it gets right to the heart of the challenge for digital: making practitioners of our leaders, and encouraging a more open way of working.
As we draw towards Christmas, it’s a good time to reflect on what we’ve been up to over the year, and assess how we refresh our embedding digital activity for the new year.
