The learning program

PPF is offering a professional development opportunity for public service executives to better understand disruptive technologies and the way they are challenging policy and governance approaches. Government reactions often lag long behind technological changes; how can governments not only catch up, but reorient their organizations to reliably keep up in the future? It starts with understanding a panoply of powerful technology developments and their broader social and economic impacts.

This series of learning modules, designed for current and prospective government executives, provides a deep dive into a selection of emerging technologies, likely areas of disruption and impact and an exploration of how governments around the world are reacting – or not – to a quickly shifting technological landscape. For each session, we’ll explore the common threads of information security, privacy, ethics, regulatory implications, sustainability and data.
