Tuesday December 9–Wednesday December 10 2014 • Fairmont Château Laurier • Ottawa, Ontario
Conference Overview

Participate in Canada’s top forum for leaders and practitioners in public sector transformation.

The Conference Board’s public sector transformation events attract leaders from all levels of government, to connect with the public sector change experts and their peers, and learn from insightful examples and informative case studies.

Benefit from the experiences of top public sector transformers.

Broad consultation with public sector leaders ensures the agenda addresses the public sector’s specific change management needs. It also recognizes that public sector change is more complex and challenging than private sector change, and you need to hear from others who are facing the same challenges as you.

A foundation of case studies is complemented with the observations and experiences of senior change thought leaders and practical sessions about how to do a better job leading change. The end result is an eclectic and varied line-up, with diverse perspectives that illuminate and demystify the complexity of change.

Change leadership is a critical skill at all levels of government.

If you work at the federal, provincial, or municipal level, or in a crown corporation, the environment’s changing, and you must adapt to survive. While each jurisdiction and organization faces its own specific challenges, you can learn a lot from each other’s experiences.

Whether your challenge is austerity, new and emerging technologies, changing demographics, new organizational structures, changing mandates and policies, or new services, your success depends on your ability to lead change. Each year, this event presents a broad range of change examples and perspectives, and encourages dialogue between delegates and its stellar line-up of speakers.

Prepare yourself for tomorrow’s changes.

Learn what works and what doesn’t from your peers, and benefit from the insights of successful public sector leaders and change practitioners. Find out about best practices you can apply to your change initiatives, from inter-department to organization-wide transformation.

What change challenges will you face in the coming years?

One thing is certain. Change in the public sector isn’t going to slow down any time soon. Cuts will continue at all levels of government, as citizens demand more value for their tax dollars. As a result, the need for change will remain constant, and may even intensify.

Public sector change comes in many forms, and our experts will examine a broad range of issues, such as the:

impact of open government
increasing use of shared services
advantages of the lean approach to government services
challenge of changing the culture of government
current focus on innovation
new generation of leaders, and how it will impact the public sector and change
influence of social media
change management disciplines for large and complex projects
mental health impact of change
collaboration across departments and outside government
federal government’s Blueprint 2020, and what comes next
dedicated change management capacity to deal with ongoing change
essential role of middle management

Lessons for and from the federal government – from Blueprint to Destination.

Hear the latest on the federal government’s major change initiative. Blueprint 2020 involved broad consultation on public servant’s perspectives on the future of the public service in Canada. The follow-up report, Destination 2020, is expected in May 2014, and we look forward to discussing it at this event as well. This is of direct interest to federal employees, and the methodology and outcomes hold important lessons for everyone engaged in change, and in all levels of government.

Building on success.

The Conference Board is Canada’s most respected independent research and conference development organization. Conference board events attract leading public sector experts, and provide an insightful and enlightening learning experience for participants.
