Drawing on the lessons from the Global Government Forum’s Leading a modern civil service report, this session will look at what skills government need to deliver the services that citizens expect – and whether they are best to develop them in house, or hire them? 

  • Flexible and agile to be more resilient and take risks 
  • Focused on delivery, with an ability to solve the most complex problems 
  • Trusted by your citizens in an era of uncertainty
