Date: Tuesday, October 8
Time: 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Agility begins with the right focus. Speed and flexibility only matter if you end up with a relevant result.

In IBM’s most recent Global CEO Study, public sector leaders ranked "citizen relationships" as a critical issue to be addressed by all orders of government. In much the same way that commercial enterprises are constantly looking to improve customer service -- to sustain customer relationships and drive better business results -- public sector entities are also re-thinking the way they engage with citizens.

A citizen-centric view can help governments focus on the right place to start for change and relevance. Challenging the conventional ways to decision making, and using citizens as a driver for change, can help government disrupt and re-think entrenched processes and policies. Constantly focusing on improving how citizens can engage with government is the first step in moving government toward being responsive and current.
