Leadership for Digital Transformation

There is great pressure on the public service, and every public servant, to continually step up to deliver digital services that are modern, efficient, safe and secure. It means doing things differently using new mindsets, skills and data, as well as technologies. IPANZ is delighted to offer all our members insights into digital leadership and transformation from a very capable panel, with internal and external, strategic and operational perspectives. This Panel will open your eyes to the opportunities and challenges at every level of the public service.

Effective Engagement with Māori

The way government engages with Māori is changing. Future engagement is going to be different from what we have traditionally seen/experienced. The establishment of Te Arawhiti – The Office for Māori Crown Relations, demonstrates the governments’ commitment to build strong, ongoing and effective relationships with Māori across all of government. Engagement will go beyond consultation to true partnership.

This two-day workshop is designed to help public servants gain a greater understanding of Te Ao Māori (Māori world view), Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and provides practical tools and techniques for effectively engaging with Māori.

Collaboration - You Can Make It Work With Great Results

Collaboration across sectors is complex and demanding, but rewarding beyond imagination when it works well. The place-based housing initiative in Hastings involved a deep collaboration between Central and Local Government and Iwi. We have invited two Chief Executives, Nigel Bickle, Chief Executive, Hastings District Council, and Andrew Crisp, Chief Executive, Ministry of Housing and Urban Development to tell us what it took to make it happen.

Leading Digital Programmes to Transform Public Services

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 Today that desire to offer a digital-first experience has been replaced by a need.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.
