Innovation and digital disruption in practice

A hands-on 1-day development program for the Public Sector

Sydney · Melbourne · Canberra · Brisbane

1-Day Program for Public Sector Leaders

The pace of change due to digital technologies is increasing. Organisations who don’t embrace service and policy innovation will become irrelevant and risk being edged-out by digital disruptors. Digital innovation represents a whole new way of thinking and working and a significant shift to organisational culture, strategy and process. Organisations need their own digital disruptors inside the organisation who understand the technology, how to implement it and how to bring the rest of the organisation on the journey.

This workshop provides participants with an overview of the new ways of thinking and working that digital represents and give them the working tools to be digital leaders. The workshop covers keys tools and concepts such as design thinking, strategic foresight and divergent innovation. Participants will walk away armed with fundamental knowledge, tools and hands-on experience to form a vision, identify opportunities, guide innovation and ultimately lead digital disruption within their agency.

Please note: If you joined us for the Digital Disruptors program in August, this 1-day program takes the concepts to the next level. It provides an opportunity to deepen what you’ve learned put those techniques into practice.

There’s a risk of evangelising when returning from these types of events but I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned to improve the culture of our workplace and the quality of our work environment

How do I know if this course is for me?

  • Are you an executive or manager in IT, digital or service delivery?
  • Are you looking to lead digital disruption and innovation in your organisation?
  • Would you like more tools to help others understand digital and bring them on the journey?

If you answered yes to any of the above, this program is for you

Who’s this program not suited to?

If you like to innovate by yourself in a bubble, that’s ok, but this program is not for you. Digital disruption is about how you change the organisation around you, and requires that you win stakeholders over. This program is designed to give you tools to implement that broader disruption.
