Today’s ideal civil services are lean and mean, spread thin but agile, with staff cultivating resilience, change and time management skills, and adaptability like never before in this century. What does this mean for government “extracurriculars”?
How do you even begin to plan an event that is relevant to government (three levels), academic and not-for-profit stakeholders across 13 provinces/territories in a massive country?
The sort of organizational culture we need to truly transform the public service is one that accepts open discussion and experimentation – so we can determine what is truly worthy of doing.
