Making Digital Change Agents in Canadian Governments

The highly acclaimed Digital Executive Leadership Program has been purpose-built for public sector executives at all levels of government (federal, provincial, municipal) and non-profit leaders who want to better understand the leadership challenges and opportunities in the digital era.

Over 120 participants from government departments, agencies, and not-for-profit organizations have sent their executives and managers to benefit from this unique learning opportunity, now in its ninth cohort.


In addition to our week-long Digital Executive Leadership Program, we develop and facilitate custom digital leadership and literacy training workshops to suit any need you have.

Our custom workshops – running between half a day to two full days – help public servants at every order of government with:

  • An introduction to digital government trends in Canada and around the world
  • Digital service standards and navigating the technology policy landscape
  • Innovation, culture change, and building a modern digital team
  • An introduction to agile product and team management methods
  • Design thinking and applying user-centered design techniques in government
  • An introduction to data science, machine learning, analytics, and data visualization
  • Demystifying technology buzzwords and understanding modern digital technologies
  • Digital ethics and exploration of issues related to adoption of disruptive technologies in government (i.e. Artificial Intelligence and algorithmic decision-making)
  • Impact of COVID on digital government, including remote and distributed work teams
