Her Majesty’s Home Civil Service, also known as Her Majesty’s Civil Service or the Home Civil Service, is the permanent bureaucracy or secretariat of Crown employees that supports Her Majesty’s Government in the UK.
As of the end of March 2018, there were 430,075 civil servants in the Home Civil Service.
Tackling the UK’s high-priority issues within today’s digital age requires creative ideation and agile decision-making.
The UK Civil Service recognises the power of intrapreneurship as a force to activate change and innovation, and have therefore set an example for Governments worldwide by professionalising entrepreneurship within its workforce.
To this end, they devised an Intrapreneurship Qualification to provide their talent with the skillset, toolset and mindset to be entrepreneurial in every part of their professional life.
The UK Civil Service has asked us to provide a small number of their departments with a digital product to upskill Civil Servants by guiding them through a series of exercises where they would apply the key principles of Lean Entrepreneurship to a challenge related to their day-to-day operations.
The main requirement was to allow the programme to be administered independently and remotely at scale, without any active intervention from us apart from designing, producing and setting it up.
