Digital transformation: which government projects will survive Covid?

The work of government has been upended in 2020 by the response to the coronavirus pandemic, as departments moved swiftly to respond to a health emergency – shifting almost the entire work of government to home working nearly overnight, building new hospitals in days, and developing whole new services in weeks.

In delivering these projects, government has had to become more agile in how it works, and take a streamlined approach to digitisation and transformation across a host of Covid-critical services.

This has also meant that work on a host of pre-existing transformation projects was paused or slowed, but now, as the government begins to look to a situation where the pandemic may finally be put under control, it is time to consider which of these schemes should make a comeback, and how the lessons of the last year apply to them.

This webinar will look at:

  • How the government’s plans for transformation were affected by Covid
  • Which projects have been able progress in 2020, and which have had to take a back seat
  • Where government should focus attention on transformation as the country gets back normal
  • What the lessons have been from the government’s coronavirus response that can be used elsewhere
