Summary: Matt Sawkill, Managing Director of Code for Australia and Jithma Beneragama Executive Director of Digital Design and Innovation at the Department of Premier and Cabinet explore what civic tech is, what makes a digitally mature government and tell us about some great initiatives happening around Australia.Transcript: A full transcript of this episode is available here.Key takeaways: “When you're talking about change and you're talking about re-imagining processes and products, the technology is the easy part of that and there's always a huge amount of effort to get the organisation to have an aligned point of view about what the problem is and what a solution might be.”“You need to make sure that you have the right capability within the organisation and that the organisation itself is at a point in time and has the mindset around change and being able to accept change”“The more decisions you make before you have a team on the ground building software, the greater the chances are that you're building the wrong software”“That whole framing, that there's an idea of a non-technical person is, you know, it's something we really challenge.”“People tend to work in the public sector because they want to make impact and they want to do something that's beneficial for society”"The biggest barriers to doing digital well happen before the tech team is on the ground."Resources mentioned: Read more about digital transformation on Code for Australia’s blogJoin Code for Australia’s Slack channelTech For Non Tech trainingGet involved in Civic MakersSingle Digital PresenceVic Gov APIEngage VictoriaHuman-centred Design PlaybookDigital VictoriaCredits and thank yous: The show is hosted by Esther Semo and Sean Hua.
