Our Programs

We’re helping governments and communities work together to find new ways of solving old problems

Common Threads

We offer many programs, but they all have common underlying values and practices

Show, not tell

We make things together, transferring learning and capability along the way

Human-centered

We design and build services for, and with, diverse communities – always

Default to open

We operate in public – everything we create and do is open for all

Safe spaces

We create supportive environments for people to experiment and learn

Network support

We create communities of practice that grow and thrive together

Small 'a' agile

We work flexibly, encouraging and responding to feedback constantly

Fellowship

Our Fellowship program pairs talented technologists with government innovators to work on challenges.

Teams of three, made up of developers and design experts from the private sector, are embedded into government departments or agencies for 6 – 12 month projects.

Sandpit

Our Sandpit program is an intensive innovation program, designed to help  public servants skill-up faster, break down silos, and reimagine services.

Bringing technologists and public servants together to work on challenges for six weeks, the Sandpit creates a safe environment for change-makers to test, validate and scale their ideas.

Validate

Our Validate program gives leaders in government the support they need to explore, test and roadmap new ideas, before investing large amounts of time and resources into them.

Through collaboration and short sprints, Validate helps innovative leaders inside government create actionable plans for bold ideas.

Tech for Non Tech

Tech for Non Tech is our bite-sized program: a one-day masterclass designed to help non-technical people deepen their understanding of web development, and learn how to work amazingly with developers.

Digital Maturity Indicator

We’ve partnered with the Harvard Kennedy School of Government to help governments across the country measure and accelerate their digital transformation. Benchmarking digital maturity across six key areas, this assessment helps agencies and departments learn where to focus their energy and budget for success.
