6 weeks after kick-off, The Danish Agency for Modernisation have gone live with their new digital management system.

We spoke to cBrain consultant, Anette Stang-Pedersen, to find out more about how it was delivered:

“The Agency for Modernisation is part of the Ministry of Finance, and deals with sound financial management and HR leadership across the public sector. 

Like many organisations, previously they worked out of a mixture systems, with key communication often happening by email. In light of the incoming GDPR legislation, they wanted to be sure that they had good control over record keeping. Also, as the Agency is responsible for advising others on financial management, they wanted to be working in an efficient way themselves.  

Using F2 helps them to do that - they now have automated registration of important records, so users don’t have to remember to do anything special.
Working out of cases has also given the Agency a simple overview of work in progress, and control over what needs doing when.

This was one of my first projects since joining cBrain from the State Administration, so I wasn’t sure how different the environment would be. But in fact the Agency of Modernisation has a similar mix of people with a legal and policy background, so it was easy to understand what they needed from the implementation.

The key to implementing at speed is having a strong level of leadership engagement and an enthusiastic organisation. The directors responsible for the project were very hands-on, and were very clear and direct about the goals of the project.

The rest of the organisation has responded well to the change, and we’ve seen some nice comments on LinkedIn, so it’s great to have positive feedback.’

Note: cBrain signed an agreement over the summer with the Finance Ministry to provide a digital solution covering the core department and four agencies. The implementation project includes:

  • The Finance Ministry
  • The Agency for Modernisation
  • The Agency for Digitisation
  • The Agency for Governmental Administration, and
  • The Agency for Governmental IT Services.

The deal consolidates cBrain’s position in the public sector, and showcases the ability to work across departments and agencies.
