Public Sector Transformation 2013
Message from the Program Developer
This event was created to help public servants excel in change and transformation, and each year it delivers new and insightful success stories, and new ways to think about change…
Transformation—your top priority as a public sector leader.
While government austerity continues across Canada, the need for effective change has intensified. Doing more with less is no longer enough. You must do that, and you must also do things differently.
Budget cuts may be the immediate challenge, but changing demographics, increasing diversity, policy changes, and new technologies must also be considered. This event is one of a kind, because it takes a comprehensive view of the public sector’s unique change management needs, and the latest issues and opportunities.
Equip yourself for the immediate challenges, and those you’ll face in the future.
Learn what works and what doesn’t from your peers who have succeeded at major transformation. Hear first-hand about practical change management approaches and successful change activities across the public sector.
Benefit from the insights of successful public sector leaders and change practitioners, and find out about best practices you can apply to your change initiatives. This combination of case studies and proven expertise provides an unparalleled look into how to succeed, from inter-department to organization-wide transformation.
How will your organization change in the next five years?
Federal government job cuts continue, and many other governments have begun 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’ experiences with 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
- using restraint as an opportunity to innovate
- 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
- seeing beyond cuts to a positive vision of the future
Use innovation to build the foundation of tomorrow’s public service.
Doing more with less creates huge stress on organizations and individuals. This event will include a major focus on public sector innovation, to help you prepare for the major changes ahead and improve how your organization works.
You’ll hear from peers who have overcome today’s pressures and setbacks, by focusing on a positive vision of the future and working to make that vision a reality.
Benefit from the innovators’ guidance to help keep your transformation efforts on track. Improve your approach to change leadership, and apply the latest public sector change best practices in your organization.
