DTO explains agile teams ahead of second-wave digital transformation

The Digital Transformation Office has transformed itself, according to product delivery chief Dan Pulham, and is ready for the second wave of digital transformation after effectively operating as a policy agency for its first year.

The “ultimate goal” is to help other agencies set up in-house multidisciplinary agile teams that work according to the doctrine of the digital service standard, Pulham said, as a “second wave of transformation projects” begin to take shape.

Joined by colleague Rod Molina, one of the office’s digital transformation managers, Pulham continued to promote the new approach to digital government at a seminar in Canberra on Monday afternoon.

“Our goal is to deliver simpler public services,” he told the group of public servants, explaining the DTO stands ready to advise agencies on their own projects — not just to work directly with the larger entities.
