Why you should attend?

    • 1. Promote cross-agency and cross-sector collaboration by sharing data, eliminating bureaucratic barriers and utilizing networks formed during crisis response.  
    • 2. Break the co-dependence of hard and soft infrastructure by building an elastic workforce free of on-premise restrictions.
    • 3. Develop comprehensive data and analytics strategies to create predictive models, make data-informed decisions and promote pre-emptive crisis response.  
    • 4. Explore how automation, digitisation and AI-powered technology can help maintain service levels and increase efficiency in information processing.
    • 5. Create effective digital channels to inform decision making by creating a ‘feedback loop’ with citizens.
    • 6. Redirect idled labour to the greatest areas of need by up-skilling displaced workforces. 

Efficient public service delivery is crucial in crisis. However, delivery is often impaired by disrupted supply chains, automation under pressure, displaced workforces and unprecedented demand.  But crisis also presents vast opportunities for improvement. When bureaucracy is personalised and collaboration between agencies increase, citizen engagement and satisfaction grows – along with their confidence in government. 

 Despite its downfalls, the current global crisis can inspire operational excellence in the future of public service delivery. By innovating coordinated solutions, developing hard and soft infrastructure and undergoing targeted staff development, the public sector can ensure operational excellence in the aftermath of COVID-19. 

 Service Centric 2020 will use the current crisis to inspire greater resilience, efficiency and coordination of public service delivery across sectors. This two-day virtual workshop will support attendees in their development of internal strategies to ensure external operations remain seamless and citizen centric. Attendees will learn how to capitalise on collaborative dialogues between customers and their providers across sectors. Together, we can rebuild the economy and restore trust in government services in the aftermath of crisis.
