Mike Ward, Head of IT, South Hams & West Devon Councils

At our recent SW LocalGov Digital & Transformation meet-up,  Mike Ward, Head of IT at South Hams District Council and West Devon Borough Council, shared the major
organisational change that the council has undergone and how the new operating model and structure of the organisation, along with the adoption of a Low code platform
strategy, put the council in a perfect position to deliver agile transformation.

Mike covered:

Organisational change (the benefit of a flattened structure without silos)
Why Low code?
How to procure platforms
The vision & potential

An excellent and lively discussion session with the majority of the Local Authorities in the South West

Here is a copy of Mike’s slides that were used during the discussion:  Lowcode = the Future slidedeck
