Over the last few years, the UK government has been modernising service delivery using human centred design. We’ve learned what happens when services are not designed from the users perspective and we’ve seen the impact this has on people’s lives. For those of us working to redesign government services we know have an opportunity to design well, to design for good.
Part of that involves giving large complex organisations the tools they need to manage services which are used by millions of people. Mostly it involves building trust and transparency, and re-setting our relationship with the public because good services, are efficient as well as humane.
