There have never been higher expectations of governments than there are today. Globally, they are under pressure to do more, do it better and do it for less.
For some time, there has been a push towards ‘digital transformation’ but typically more than 80% of public sector transformation efforts fail to meet their objectives. Today that desire to offer a digital-first experience has been replaced by a need. Demands have changed and organisations in every sector across every region have had to ramp up their digital efforts. Now all eyes are on governments to keep up.

My office is on Lambton Quay in the heart of Wellington’s CBD. It is a great location for viewing parades, protests, or just the ordinary foot traffic. The CBD is noticeably quieter these days as more people work from home. Tuesday, 8 November was different.
I was aware that there was a protest march, it was not until my meeting was completely disrupted by the sound and vibration of huge motorbikes that I looked out. As others have commented, this was a protest like no other I have seen. There was no unifying message or chant. Some placards were vehemently anti-vax, some pro-vaccination but anti-mandate, others anti-1080. Pro-choice placards were next to Nazi swastikas and anti-apartheid signs. Some waved the Tino Rangatiratanga flag, others the flag of the United Tribes – often upside down. Still others waved Trump and QAnon flags and slogans.

This campaign saw 1 in 5 New Zealanders – more than 1 million people – celebrate te reo at the same time, marking the moment in 1972 when the Māori language petition was presented to parliament.
