Building a Future-Ready Public Service in Alberta

Alberta’s public service has reached a pivotal moment on its journey of transformation. The need for change has never been greater and the opportunities are limitless. The challenge lies in that public servants must collectively continue to deliver seamless services while simultaneously rebuilding, adopting and implementing new tools and technologies needed to meet citizen needs. The demand for innovation is at its all-time high, and Alberta is ready to take the leap.

This is the time to foster a culture of dynamic, agile, and risk-averse thinking. The public sector must continue to push for collaboration, transparency and cooperation from across the organization in order to achieve the level of transformation needed to keep up with the growing needs of the public. This is the time to create meaningful partnerships, allowing the government to push the boundaries of innovation.  

The evolution of internal processes, infrastructures and accessibility of technologies will continue to fuel growth, which will only create better outcomes for employees as well as the citizens and residents that they serve.  

The Public Sector Innovation Show Alberta program will highlight a wide range of topics and themes currently impacting citizen services, employee experience, as well as modernization and evolution of government. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from keynote speakers, participate in panel discussions, and engage in roundtables that explore the latest developments and emerging trends in digital innovation.
