BETAThis is a new service. Your feedback will help us to improve it.
The Scottish Digital Academy supports transformation by providing an agile coaching service for leaders and for public and third sector organisations in Scotland. We are open for discussion, information, advice and guidance.
Our service offer
In a time of significant change and digital transformation, the need to design and build effective, efficient and fit for purpose public services has never been greater. With a focus on people at the centre of the service and on developing an agile culture, our coaching team of our own lead specialists and agile coaches and our official coaching service partner can help you and your teams to identify barriers, work with you to identify solutions to progress, help embed an agile approach to product and service design and to deliver a range of training courses designed to upskill those working with and leading agile teams.
There is no single package of support, rather we work with you to understand what interventions are required before designing and implementing a bespoke service that meets your needs. Our team is open for discussion, information, advice and guidance.
Agile empowers a multi-disciplinary team to work together to design, develop and deliver products and services. It’s an iterative and incremental approach to project management that enables value to be delivered to the public early and continuously.
It’s all about providing the end user with credible experiences without the need for a significant one-off launch. This allows us to respond to changes or user feedback without the need to start from scratch. Collaboration and co-construction is based on openness, trust and a set of values and principles that leads to a culture of learning and continuous improvement.
Our coaching service partner
As well as providing agile coaching services by our own lead specialists and agile coaches, we work in partnership with Gnos-Tec, the official coaching service partner of the Scottish Digital Academy. We will work with them to provide training and coaching on our behalf, using their experience and qualifications from a global network of highly experienced Associates. With a previous and current portfolio across the public and third sector as well as from industry, Gnos-Tec is at the cutting edge of digital transformation theory and practice.
