Event Type: Bootcamp

IT in government is changing. Shared services, social media, open data: all these and more raise governance and leadership issues for IT leaders in governments.

IT leaders need to rise above the storm to prepare themselves, and their organizations, for success in this evolving world.

Building on our last successful event, this two-day Boot Camp is specifically designed for federal public servants at the EX-1 or equivalent level, including employees recognized as high potential, who work in the IT sections in their departments or agencies and who want to continue to add value in future leadership positions.

Why does executive leadership matter?

Public service leaders need to support and guide decision-making at a strategic level. This course will give you the understanding and means to build on your knowledge so that you are equipped to lead your organization forward.

In today’s environment, learning is more important than ever. In the Sixth Report of the Prime Minister’s Advisory Committee on the Public Service we read that “It is […] necessary to sustain investments in employee training and development, to ensure that the Public Service maintains the capacity to do its job even as the total size of the workforce is shrinking.”

Who should participate in this course?

This course will be of particular interest to professionals who work in the IT sections in their departments or agencies.

Learning objectives:

  • understanding the changed public sector environment, including how IT has changed
  • understanding how to remain relevant within it
  • using focused communications tools to enhance key competencies
  • understanding how to adapt your leadership and management skills in response to a changing public service
  • being able to add value and remain strategic at the management tables you serve

Course fee:

The cost of this course is $1500 (no HST) per person. The price includes expert facilitation, dinner, two lunches and course materials.
