Making boring council reports more exciting and easy to read using good visuals.
People who work in councils produce boring reports for councillors to read. Cabinet and scrutiny reports are two of the worst examples. Members rarely have time to read and understand them, and often don't question the data or recommendations for fear of looking stupid. And yet they use these reports to make big decisions.
Let's make reports more interesting by changing the format. How would it look on an iPad? How would we better visualise tables of data so they were meaningful? How would we bring in the views of residents through things like videos, voxpops and social media?
Let's take an example boring report and make it way more interesting to show what can be done.
