Meeting the Challenge of Innovation in Government

February 11& 12, 2002 Ottawa Congress Center

There is no doubt that organizations today are operating under continuous change. In an environment of technological advances and globalization, world-class organizations, including governments, must remain relevant and effective. Reliance on incremental change is insufficient; there must be a capacity for break-through innovation.

The enormous innovation challenges facing the public sector are numerous and the risks are great. However, external and internal factors clearly require new and different approaches to doing the business of government.

As a participant, you will:

  • Learn how to construct strategic innovative change within government;
  • Understand how to build and support a work environment that will encourage both adaptive and innovative changes;
  • Learn what motivates team members to participate in innovation;
  • Have the opportunity to develop a mutual understanding between fellow professionals on how to support innovation.

This conference will be of interest to:

  • Senior government executives and managers committed to innovative change
  • Organizational effectiveness consultants
  • Academics and other advisors working to improve the public sector.

This conference will give executives and managers the tools to:

  • Build and create a work environment in which innovation can grow
  • Design a plan to motivate team members to participate in innovation, and
  • Show you how to develop a mutual understanding between fellow professionals in order to support innovation
