About the session
What are the people, process and technology levers that can help the Civil Service deliver cheaper and better, faster?
  1. Government speaks of the “fierce urgency of now” - how is your organisation responding to this call to accelerate delivery?
  2. How sustainable is this in the long-term? What impact is it having on your team - and how are you managing it?
  3. The reality of the digital revolution and customer demand have accelerated the digitalisation of working practices. How has this affected your organisation?
  4. Government departments are now at a key moment of transition. How do you plan to hold on to the gains and resist the pendulum swing back to business-as-usual?
