Open Policy 2015: reflections

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Examples and findings, News

Well, as you will hopefully have seen on this blog, Open Policy 2015 is now done and dusted - and what a great week it was! We saw sessions on agile, Policy Lab, how to run a hackday, data science, social media, behavioural insights and many more. If you haven’t done so already, do check out the Storify from each day and catch up on the presentations. The speakers were great as were the interactions, and it is clear to me that we have more energy, experience and excellence in the civil service than we think and that looking ahead we just need to redouble our efforts to bring new insights and expertise to our work.


As you can imagine, the OPM team are already planning what the next steps look like, but for now I wanted to leave you with two things: first, a film from Open Policy 2015 and second, the news that you will be able to access the initial test version of our new open policy toolkit through this blog from next week. So watch this space...
