A multi-department team ran a Lightning Design Jam using the online whiteboard Mural, bringing together Australian public servants and their New Zealand cousins. They worked on the question of 'What has the experience of COVID-19 taught us that we can apply to the future of work and service delivery?'

The answers are plenty - we're highly agile, can do almost everything digitally, are mobile and can adopt new technologies rapidly.

The workshop was a great proof-of-concept showing how we can share ideas, work quickly and capture it all in an online whiteboard. You don't have to been in the same room to get meaningful outputs!
