The Summit brings together public sector leaders to discuss strategies for government transformation and the leadership skills needed to deliver public service for the future.
On June 10-12, government transformation leaders met to discuss innovations and strategies for delivering public service for the future. The goal of the Public Sector for the Future Summit was to focus, not on small incremental improvements, but on the step changes that can usher in true government transformation.
Together, through the sharing of insights and experiences, Summit participants came to know what the future of government looks like. That future comprises federal, state and local agencies and organizations that:
Apply data and analytics to improve outcomes
Continually optimize their performance to drive new levels of productivity
Focus on delivering citizen-centric services that people value and trust
Create environments that encourage workforce agility
Achieving that vision for government will not be easy but, as Summit participants proved, there are countless “uptake” and “edge” innovations and business models that are already moving governments forward. Now is the time to build on that momentum to drive lasting change.
