Local Government Digital Transformation

Online: Tuesday, November 30, 2021 | Time: 12:00-2:15pm ET / 9:00-11:15am PT

Unlocking Digital Innovation – How To Drive Successful Transformation

Local government provides many of our most essentials services through multiple touchpoints on a daily basis, and increasingly those services are being provided on shrinking budgets as populations continue to grow. As we forge ahead into a new decade, digital transformation will be one of the biggest drivers of public sector innovation and efficiency. 

Although many local and municipal governments are well underway with digital transformation initiatives, some continue to lag in their progress. The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a fresh urgency to modernize services and ramp up digital transformation projects. As local governments across the country face increasingly pressing challenges to meet service delivery – made even more challenging by the pandemic environment – digital transformation initiatives have provided a unique opportunity to break down silos, collaborate, and improve citizen engagement.  

Public Sector Network’s Local Government Digital Transformation will provide an opportunity to connect with your colleagues and peers as they share practical ideas and lessons on how local governments are driving digital transformation to improve efficiency and effectiveness. Join us as we explore actionable insights that can help accelerate your digital transformation and provide a best-in-class experience for your citizens.
