Experimenting in Government: Learning from Doing

Teams all across government are being encouraged to experiment. But what does this mean? What purpose does it serve, and what does it look like in practice?

Discover the stories and experiences of teams who are part of an initiative called Experimentation Works, a project designed to promote experimentation through practice. Learn more from public servants on the front lines of innovation as they discussed the following topics:

  • how they developed their experimental projects and their hypotheses
  • how they planned the work
  • how they chose their methods and allocated their resources
  • the skills and expertise they mobilized
  • the obstacles they encountered and how they overcame them
  • what they learned

Learn more about the skills and competencies needed to develop and deliver on policies in new experimental ways and hear about the resources and supports available to teams to advance experimental efforts across government.
