SPRINT GO: an event about the transition to GOV.UK

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Events, Transition

We’re holding a SPRINT GO event next Thursday, 30 January, about the transition to GOV.UK of more than 300 agencies and arm’s length bodies (ALBs).

This half-day event will bring together colleagues from government departments, agencies and ALBs across England and Wales to share, talk and learn more about the transition project.

If you’re a web editor, content designer or publisher at a department, agency or ALB that is transitioning, look out for an email called SPRINT GO, or Splash. You’ll need to select the RSVP button which takes you to the official registration page. Please select the RSVP button on that page and complete the short registration form to book your place.

If you’d like to come to SPRINT GO and haven’t had an email, get in touch with Natalie Wootton. Please let us know if you’ll be joining us. We need to know by midday Friday, 24 January.

Workshops will run throughout the SPRINT GO event, in which agencies can find out more about different parts of transition to GOV.UK, including agile, style and content, and user needs research.

We’re also making time for people to talk to colleagues from different departments, agencies and from the GDS transition team. We want it to be a place for people to talk, ask questions, and learn how others have managed their transition. We’ll be running helpdesks that you can drop into at any time to talk to GDS staff and ask specific questions.

Mike Bracken, Executive Director of Digital in the Cabinet Office, and Rachel Neaman, Digital Lead from the Department of Health, are the keynote speakers and will share insights about how digital is changing government.

    Sounds like an interesting event, but why the strange title?

    Will you be asking attendees to run around? And why the shouty capitals?

    I'm pretty sure the style guide says to avoid buzzwords, jargon and shouting at people.
