News: Agile team sprints to technology award

17/01/17




The Digital Transformation Team pictured above recently won an award for the best use of agile in the public sector at the Agile Awards 2016. ‘Agile’ is a way of running projects which results in the use of short periods of time (typically a fortnight) to run technology development ‘sprints’. This means technology is built specifically around what our customers and staff needs are and can be turned around quickly. The joint Council/Capita team started working together in February and is working closely with digital champions and experts from across the council to implement digital projects. Some examples of what our joint team has developed include new ways of reporting a missed bin, applying for a new residents parking permit and raising a Purchase Order as well as rolling out over 400 mobile devices to staff. Key people involved Rebecca Ayres, Becky Davis and Helen Saward from the council's transformation team and Peter Reynolds from Capita.
