WHY GOVTECH?

Lightning Lab GovTech is underpinned by four key values which keep the teams focused on the purpose of the programme:

UPSKILLING OF GOVERNMENT STAFF IN NEW WAYS OF WORKING THROUGH IMMERSIVE LEARNING BY DOING.

SOLVING THE ROOT-CAUSE PROBLEMS AND BUILDING THE RIGHT SOLUTION TO MEET CITIZENS NEEDS.

ENABLING CO-DESIGN AND COLLABORATION WITH CITIZENS AND THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTORS.

PROMOTING CORE GOVERNMENT IMPERATIVES OF TRUST AND TRANSPARENCY.

THE KEY DIFFERENCE

IS THE PROCESS GOVTECH  ACCELERATOR TEAMS GO THROUGH.

We ensure they truly understand the problem, help them co-create fit-for-purpose solutions, validate the concept with users and funders while experimenting and iterating to get it right.

This process takes away the risk of developing solutions that don’t deliver the desired outcomes.

This is the GovTech difference. Leaders have greater access to evidence enabling them to make an informed decision. The result? A fit-for-purpose solution that can have a meaningful, lasting impact.

'This is good value, no question. We should do it again. No question. I couldn’t fault the way the GovTech team managed the process and teams.'

GOVTECH IN ACTION

Teams complete a series of sprints which systematically set their projects up for success.

The highly structured programme supports the teams through a series of workshops, training and speaker sessions for each of our six individual sprints.

Each team is matched with a sprint coach to keep them accountable and on the right track. We also facilitate the development of a cross-sector stakeholder group to provide guidance, support and connections.

The programme takes place in our GovTech Hub in Wellington, which creates the ideal environment for these projects to succeed.
