The Design Community of Practice met for the final event of 2023 on 29 November.

Presentation - Implementing Service Design in Scottish Local Government

We were joined by Synnøve Frøiland, service designer at the Digital Office, who  shared what she has learned from working towards implementing the Scottish Approach to Service Design (SAtSD) in local government.

Synnøve talked about the work that has been done so far and how they concluded that one solution does not fit all, due to the councils being at different stages of implementing service design. She explained why and how they are using the maturity matrix from the SAtSD to tailor support.
