In my work with Public Health England, I’m finding out how it feels to be on the other side of the Cabinet Office spending controls. It feels horrible. This week I spent a lot of time, with others, trying to figure out the best way to get in the temporary capability we need to give digital a boost. We will find a way to get to suppliers and spend the money responsibly with them but, my word, there must be a more efficient and effective way to control wasteful spending.
In happier news, we had our first stand ups and our first sprint planning session. Spending controls aside, I’m loving Sprint 0!
