Our research

  • PDF

As part of Envisioning our digITal future, we researched extensively to have an insight into what others are doing as a way of kickstarting the co-design process. The research included:

  • Digital and ICT-related strategies in governments across Australia and internationally
  • Strategies and principles from commercial and not-for-profit businesses including TED talks

This research helped inform what 'themes' we could cover as part of Envisioning our digITal future. This was a point in time exercise and updates will be done on an as-needs basis. As you explore each 'theme', you will find a section that shows what other jurisdictions are doing for that theme.  This page gives you a handy way to explore this research.

Both colour coding and numbers to label each organisation or document so you can easily link a particular principle with its source document.
