  1. Service manual
  2. Communities
  3. Product and service community

The product and service community exists to:

  • make sure government products and services meet user needs
  • create a supportive peer group of product managers and service owners across government
  • improve product management skills and techniques through collaboration
  • discuss and challenge the way government manages products and services
  • help you use shared products and components in your service

Who the community is for

You might be interested in the community if you use (or want to use) product management methods to deliver government products and services that meet user needs.

You don’t have to be in a product manager or service owner role to join.

Get involved
