Teaching old dogs new tricks: innovating in a tech-scared world

Ann Griffiths and Matthew Booth

We?d like to show people how the public sector is turning to technology to help it solve some of the big problems it faces, and how it's beginning to see the opportunities technology provides to do things better. Our presentation would explore: The public sector attitude to technology, and how that's changing; how it currently uses technology and where innovation is happening around efficiency, empowerment, and service delivery; where there are opportunities that haven't been taken up yet, and opportunities to do things bigger and better, e.g. around "collaborative consumption"; What the challenges and blockers are to further development and positive change (such as the skills and capacity, and issues around data security), where the public sector needs help to progress, how technology experts and other sectors can play a part, and how that benefits us all. This wouldn't be the kind of dry government-speak people might be used to hearing.
