Our Public Service 2020 was launched in December 2017, providing a framework that supports continuous development and innovation across the public service. It is hoped that its actions will build a stronger public service, delivering better outcomes for citizens.
As 2018 comes to an end, there has been some real progress in the key areas of promoting innovation, digitising services and improving the development of people and workforce planning. 6 of the framework’s 18 core actions have been prioritised by the Public Service Leadership Board for immediate implementation. There are certainly many excellent examples of organisations innovating for more impactful and efficient services.
However, according to Minister Paschal Donohoe, the game changer now must be ‘a clear, well-articulated and properly-understood innovation strategy for public services’. The challenge will be not only embracing the concept of innovation but the practical tools and skills which are necessary to implement large scale transformation programmes such as project management and effective stakeholder engagement.
This conference will bring together key stakeholders from across Ireland’s public sector to look ahead to what’s next and how we can innovate and reconfigure to deliver Our Public Service 2020.
There are a limited number of opportunities to become involved with this conference as an exhibitor. This is an excellent way for organisations to showcase their expertise and raise their profile with a key audience of senior decision makers from across Ireland’s public sector.
