This year LocalGovCamp Fringe Friday features a workshop format, where experts from leading councils, Government Digital Service, Department for Work and Pensions, Ministry of Justice, Public Service Transformation Academy, innovation labs and more including private sector organisations will run workshops on all aspects of the Local Government Service Standard.


Sessions will arm attendees with practical skills to realise each point in the Standard, from designing services around users, making the most of the agile toolkit in Local, to doing performance monitoring well and using open standards and platform components.


Workshops will cover service design, doing user research, adopting common standards and ‘Government as a Platform’ components, with much more to be announced in the coming weeks.
