We recapped the 3 solutions hackers created during the BPDTS Hackathon in December in our blog post ‘How to hack your way to the winner’s circle with co-creation’. This post explores why hackathons are becoming an increasingly popular way to instigate changes at the end-user level - in private, public and third sectors.

Crowdsourcing innovative solutions through hackathons, user-experience sessions, and customer feedback is driving success for many organisations. In December more than 50 people met in Manchester to attend a BPDTS Hackathon. Throughout the day, 3 teams worked diligently to support the hackathon's objective – how to improve the employee experience using the intranet as a platform.
