How we work
With you, not for you
We collaborate in single, embedded teams with our customers, ensuring that we are delivering progress together, and upskilling in-house teams “on the job” in agile, user-centred skills.
Using agile methodologies
We use agile methodologies and ways of working, ensuring that we’re able to work in short cycles to enable us to rapidly make, test and learn, quickly respond to change, and embed processes of continuous improvement.
With user needs at the forefront
Our approach is to continually research and test our work and ideas with users to ensure that everything we do is appropriate for the people that will be using it. We like to make decisions driven by user needs to keep us focussed on building the right thing.
Co-locating with you
Our teams co-locate with our customers, with face-to-face being our default way of working. Over the last year, we have been adapting to remote working, and we’re open to finding the best way to work together with you, using tools that we can collaborate together on, wherever we’re working from.
Aligned with the GDS Service Standard
Our public sector projects are aligned with the Government Digital Service (GDS) Service Standard, in which we have experience in passing GDS service assessments.
