Full Title: Observations About, Strategies Relating To, and Lessons Learned from the US Digital Government Strategy (and how they apply to the Broader UX Community) Short Description: The Obama Administration’s 2012 Digital Government Strategy set a high bar for Federal websites, calling for the creation of “information-centric” and “customer-centric” sites and mandating “citizen-engagement.” This presentation provides an overview of the Digital Government Strategy, discusses how it came into being, and provides specific examples of recent and ongoing work in support of the strategy from a number of federal agencies. It also considers how user experience (UX) professionals can advocate for the Digital Government Strategy and how they can put its tenants to work to better serve their clients (Federal or otherwise) and, most important, the digital content users.
