Digital Standards as a Service

Digital standards have set a new bar for what good looks like for digital government. They have openly codified best practice, encouraged new ways of working, and challenged bad behaviour. In many countries, standards have started to become part of the public service fabric, shaping incentives in ways that weren’t always predicted.

In this session you’ll hear about how and why the first digital standards were written in the UK, and how this work has been built upon by teams in Canada and the US. You’ll also participate in a conversation about what the future of this bureaucratic toolkit might look like, and whether a global standard could act as a powerful lever for digital service teams around the world.
