Twenty-four participants from seven national government agencies (NGAs) and state universities and Colleges (SUCs) joined the batch 3 of the 2024 Fastbreak Workshop Series: Designing Citizen-Centered Public Services held on 19-21 March 2024 at DAP, Pasig City.

Participating agencies include the Bases Conversion and Development Authority, Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, Commission on Higher Education—National Capital Region, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Marikina Polytechnic College, Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency.

Throughout the workshop, participants were assisted in understanding the core values and needs of their clients, laying a foundation for citizen-centered service design. They were equipped with tools on how to gather ideas for service delivery improvement such as Crazy 8s, Design Charrettes, SCAMPER, Affinity Diagram, and Storyboard, empowering them to ideate and develop innovative solutions to enhance their respective services. On the final day, they tested their solutions and made adjustments to their design prior to translating these into a plan.
