LocalGovCamp2020 Keynote: BUILD BACK BETTER – CDO Priorities in a COVID-19 world hosted by Dr. Gavin Beckett, Director - Product Research & Innovation,Placecube
Dr Gavin Beckett, Placecube’s Director of Product Research & Innovation, kicks off LocalGovCamp 2020 with a look at the priorities of digital and transformation teams in local government, asking a panel of leading CDOs, CIOs and Transformation Directors how the pandemic changed their world over the past six months, how their councils have developed strategic approaches after the initial emergency response and how they have worked with the community and voluntary sector, brokering local responses in their places.
Iterative agile methods, service design, use of data and a willingness to work across silos and with organisations and communities all contributed to successful local responses to the first six months of the pandemic. And councils are already re-imagining how people will work, and how local economies will be different, as they plan to “build back better”.
From this session you’ll gain insights you can reference in your own council discussions about...
• How did local government IT and Digital teams support the response to the pandemic?
• What strategic themes have emerged in response to the “new normal”?
• How have council digital teams supported work with their communities and the voluntary sector?
