Along with the rapid progress of the digital age, the delivery of public services is about to change drastically. This means doing service reforms of contacts and interactions with the public, as well as handling internal reform of business. For this purpose, complete digitization of data, sharing and user-centered system design are indispensable, and a new idea is required also in the way of work in the digital age. In order to tackle this, the UK Government has made its policy of reform in 2010, and has steadily implemented its policy from 2011 and has achieved good results. Now, Britain is ranked first in the U.N. e-Government survey ranking in 2016.
In this seminar, we invited Mr. O’Neill, Chief Digital Officer of UK Government Department for Education, who joined GDS in the UK government in 2011. We will focus on “the history, lessons learned and future of digital services”.
