Keeping Up with the Speed of Disruption: Session 1
A Public Policy Forum Learning Program
Back by popular demand, the Public Policy Forum’s professional development seminar series Keeping Up With the Speed of Disruption will be offered for a third time.
aPolitical has recognized PPF and this program as one of 100+ teams teaching government the skills of the future.
The series is for executives, policy directors, and practice leads in the Government of Canada and in other sectors who seek a better understanding of digital government trends and digital-era governance challenges.
This series of learning modules, designed for current and prospective government executives in consultation with the Digital Academy, 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 and sustainability.
What to expect
Participants have heard from amazing speakers during the course of the first two offerings including:
I really appreciated this. I’d take more of it, honestly, and I’d really like a follow up. In particular, I really liked speaking to experts, exchanging with fellow public service executives and discussing how these technologies will impact our ways of doing things. If I had three words to describe the experience, I’d say: awakening, urgency and impressive. The number of top thinkers and doers you mobilized was frankly impressive and so was their openness with the participants.” – Hugues, Canada Revenue Agency
