Jude’s weeknotes — 18 Nov 2022


A week with a bit more time to think, I think that’s a good thing.

What did you experiment with?

Thinking about the biggest problems that our service faces, as we get close to an assessment I’ve been thinking about how we frame the service and how it fits together.

What was hard?

There are some complicated things at home that have been difficult.

What did you enjoy?

Seeing how we plan to do design histories at DfE and the fact that there will be a shared way to easily write them.

What did you learn?

The blog post about systems thinking has really got my brain whirring.

Who did you talk to outside of your organisation?

Caught up with Heather who’s an old friend and a service designer in another department.

What would you have liked to do more of?

Getting on with solving the big problems that we’ve got. Getting access to senior people is a bit of a challenge and getting a plan to how we convince them there’s a new way to see the service.

What do you wish you could have changed?

Loads of people have been poorly, I’m sad that mixing again post covid is making people poorly.

What are you looking forward to next week?

Seeing more work flow through the team and get developed.
