Call for case studies

Digital Summit 2019 is calling for submissions of case studies which showcase digital transformation in government.  

If you have worked on a successful digital transformation project or product, we’d love to hear from you. Selected case studies will be invited to take part in our program and present the case study in one of the sessions.

Additional selected case studies will be included as part of the information given to all the summit attendees. Contact details for the agency/official responsible will be included, so that those interested in finding out more can connect with you after the summit.

See our terms and conditions below for more details.

What types of case studies are we looking for?

We are interested in products that:

  • show lessons learned during the process
  • show the application of the Digital Service Standard
  • have a wide application across all levels of government (federal, state/territory and local government)
  • went live between January 2018 and the close of submissions

Case studies must be for products that are live, and for which results are known and can be shared. 

The case study will need to cover the following areas:

  • product summary
  • user need identified (what and how)
  • results/lessons to be learned
  • application of the Digital Service Standard (put n/a if not applicable)

The case study should relate to at least one of the following topics:

  • user-centred research and design
  • agile methodology
