Mark Ford: Users first. Do digital like the government.
You may think that your site has a big audience, but no one has to serve more people in the UK than the government. Every department within government is working hard to improve their online services by putting the needs of the user at the heart of delivery. How are they doing this, and what can you learn from their approach to improve the way you deliver your own services?
