During the first week of Inception between 40 and 60 people have gathered together twice a day to discuss their Service’s needs, priorities and capabilities.

It’s been really good to have so many different voices in the room as it has allowed us all to understand our common needs, our end-user requirements and most importantly to identify the shared priorities for best use of the Digital by Design delivery programme.
