Latest Tour brought to us by ASIX:

How can we build a public sector innovation system?  with Christian Bason:

Masterclass and Free Public Forum

Government and the public sector are key players in shaping and providing social services and decision making on behalf of citizens. But how can we make a public sector that is innovative and responsive to the needs of its citizens?

Christian Bason suggests that public managers take responsibility for building the language, the ability, the process and the leadership practices necessary to create the new solutions that society needs.
  • What is innovation in the public sector, and how do we create a common language about it?
  • What does it mean to build the capacity for future innovation, across political context, strategy, organisation, digitisation and culture?
  • How can we orchestrate the individual elements of a co-creation process, including rich citizen involvement and collaboration across the silos of government?
  • What are the four key leadership roles in driving innovation in government?
Who is this Masterclass for?
Whether you’re inside or outside of the public sector, if you’re interested in how to develop innovative, collaborative public sector practice then this masterclass is for you. This masterclass is for policy makers, activists, leaders in the public and third sectors and citizens with an interest in the shaping of future public policy.
