A framework to transform how we deliver value through Minnesota's programs and services
The Modernization Playbook is a common, end-to-end outline for consistent roles, language, and activities to streamline and improve access to modern government services through Minnesota’s executive branch.
The Governor’s Blue Ribbon Council on Information Technology, which consisted of a group of private and public sector information technology experts, developed the Modernization Playbook to ensure that the State of Minnesota’s IT systems and government programs work together efficiently to deliver value to the people of Minnesota.
While the Playbook is powered by Minnesota IT Services (MNIT), a team of project management professionals of technical and non-technical staff across Minnesota’s executive branch are helping state agencies to incorporate the Playbook framework into new and existing business and project management processes.
State employees can find training and resources to implement the Modernization Playbook on MNIT's Office of Transformation and Strategy Delivery's collaboration site (for executive branch employees).

Modernization Playbook phases
Why does the State of Minnesota need to modernize its systems and processes?
Align priorities across agencies and improve end user access: A modernization-focused state government improves Minnesotans’ experiences accessing government services.
Complete projects on time and within budget: Modernization helps to realize cost-savings and efficiencies as Minnesota streamlines access to systems, services, and programs. It creates more secure and better supported technology systems and applications.
Put a greater focus on solutions that meet the needs of the people we serve. Modernization efforts center around people and their experiences, allowing the State of Minnesota to focus on finding new ways to address barriers to services.
