Digital Government and CX National Insights – Summer Edition

Online

Event Overview Roadmap to Achieving Your Organization’s Digital Goals As Canada moves beyond the pandemic and repositions itself as a digital government, the challenge of obtaining internal buy-in, optimal use and access to data, and talent acquisition is still slowing progress. Strategies to achieve internal digital adoption are crucial for the success of the government’s digital goals, as is keeping users at the centre of digital planning. These strategies are imperative as success depends on how easy the services are for citizens to access and use. This quarter, we will focus on pertinent challenges like data accessibility and use for efficient transformation, strategies to keep the user at the centre of design, engaging and retaining the right talent and acquiring a tech stack to achieve the desired goal of digital transformation. Join Public Sector Network’s virtual event to learn how your agency can maintain and elevate your existing digital goals. Embark on the next phase of transformation by overcoming the internal limitations.
