Building Digital Government Talent Pipelines

The worldwide calls for the modernization and digital transformation of the public service not only persist, but grow. In response, many governments are gradually changing their culture, adopting new processes, and creating specialized units all in an effort to embrace digital. 

These endeavours have been examined in detail by the other case studies in this series; the nature of public sector digital work, the challenges and opportunities of digital transformation, and key lessons learned from the successes and failures in advancing digital government. 

This case study complements that research while focusing on the recruitment and retention of digital talent in the public sector, including what a digital talent pipeline to the government could be at the local, provincial and federal level.
