Abstract

In November 2005, The Cabinet Office, through the Chief Information Officers' Council and the Service Transformation Board, produced a "white paper" for consultation on the above topic.
This bold strategy, called for directly by Tony Blair, set out a new agenda to get the right people with the right professional skills to plan, deliver, and manage technology based change.
Peter will give a broad introduction to the overall strategy and challenges of re-engineering government services to focus on the customer, followed by Frank who will describe a case study and lessons learned on implementation of systems for Customer Relationship Management.
