Public Sector Transformation West 2012: Building the High Performance Public Service
Matrix Hotel •
Message from the Program Developer
Every year, I’m struck by the innovation, energy, and vision of the public servants I meet while developing and attending the public sector transformation events. The experience gives …
Transformation continues to be a major priority for all levels of government.
While 2012 may be a year when most governments across Canada shifted into austerity mode, some Western governments are projecting significant growth and increased service needs. In either case, the pressure is on to do more with less and increase efficiency and effectiveness.
If you want to do more with less, you must do things differently. So whatever the budget situation, superior change management is more important than ever.
Change leaders must also take into account long-term issues such as changing demographics, diversity, policy changes, citizen expectations, and new technologies. One of the key strengths of this conference is that it examines the latest drivers of change, such as immigration and growth, in the broader context of overall social and organizational change.
Learn from Western Canada public sector change leaders and their case studies.
This event will explore practical change management approaches and public sector change case studies from across Western Canada. Learn from the perspectives of successful public sector leaders and change practitioners. Gain practical insights and learn about best practices you can apply to your change initiatives. This combination of case studies and expertise provides an unparalleled look into how to make change succeed, from inter-department to organization-wide transformations.
How will your organization change in response to new pressures?
The federal government announced some 19,000 job cuts, and many other governments have announced or are considering similar moves. Even where governments aren’t making dramatic cuts, they are promising major changes and increased efficiency and effectiveness. Cuts and transformation promises can make change much more difficult, and they certainly make it much more important. To succeed with fewer resources or new organization plans requires effective change management, greater collaboration, and innovation that drives higher performance.
Capitalize on the experts’ experience in change communication, leadership, trust building, performance improvement, and change anxiety management. Topics for discussion will include:
- moving to shared services
- the lean approach to government services
- changing culture
- maintaining performance during a major transformation
- how a new generation of leaders will change the public sector
- social media as a driver and catalyst of change
- change management disciplines for large and complex projects
- dealing with stress, anxiety, and information overload
- delivering better service to citizens
- increasing collaboration across departments and outside government
Learn from the change management experiences of your peers.
Benefit from the practical insights and best practices of your fellow delegates. Whether you’re dealing with budget, demographic, regulatory, process, or policy changes, you’ll learn valuable lessons applicable to municipal, regional, provincial, and national organizations—lessons that are often unique to the public sector.
Social media is changing society. Find out how to use it to change your organization.
While some traditionalists view social media as disruptive and distracting, others point to its dramatic growth and internal and external communication and collaboration potential. We’ll explain how you can capitalize on social media in change communications, collaboration and engagement, and more.
