Seamless Digital Government
IPAA WA brings a Singaporean digital government specialist to Western Australia.
‘More-with-less’, ‘anywhere-anytime’ these are just two of the many promises of digital government. At a deeper level the OECD highlights the potential for a truly digital approach to government to be “a strategic driver to create open, innovative, participatory and trustworthy public sectors, to improve social inclusiveness and government accountability”.
Digital transformation in many large organisations has proven to be tough. Key challenges include breaking down silos, overcoming legal barriers, fixing mindsets and internal conventions. Negotiating technological change on the scale of the government is especially difficult.
As Western Australia’s public sector moves toward a digital future under the guidance of the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer, this session is an opportunity to hear from our Singaporean keynote speaker as to how that country is overcoming the challenges and leading the charge to a seamless, whole-of-government digital experience.
