Codesign for Governance

At GovCampNSW, my "Teaching Open to Government" was followed by one on "Codesign for Governance" by Jax Wechsler. Codesign recognizes there is a role for the community in the design process, not just answering questions at focus groups.

An example given was Experienced based design (ebd) at the UK National Heath Service.The also provide documents for a ebd masterclass and Measures checklist.

It stuck me that this was the way computer systems are developed (or should be developed). Given that many new government initiatives will invocable some on-line and computer component, the software design can be combined with the project design.
