Continuous learning

In my previous post I talked about the way that the UK is open to people switching careers.  This will only happen, of course, if we set out to learn continually.

There are so many ways to learn; from the people around us, formal training, internet sources such as Pluralsight, massive open online courses (MOOCs) such as Coursera, local meetups and from books.

Michael Brunton-Spall (@bruntonspall) recommended two books which are great for anyone working in digital and IT; The Goal and The Phoenix Project. These books are helping me to articulate how we need to run solution design and innovation going forward, and I have asked my team to read them.

We can improve the way that we align with business goals, maximise workflow, embed quality at source, foster experimentation and attain mastery by repetition and practice. I'm pleased to be working in an organisation which lets me put these principles into action and look forward to letting you know how we're doing as we progress along our journey.

I've been taking the time to contribute to this blog in order that we share some of our learning, and I hope you find it useful.  Together, we can change Government IT.
