“Every aspect of public service requires a digital element. Digital becomes the axle by which things get done and digital enables change. It is imperative that every civil servant has some semblance of technical acumen.”
Chief Digital Officer at Microsoft US.
Formerly Chief Digital and Information Officer, HMRC.
“Those working to develop public services need to understand how to manage digital change, by which we mean how government brings together data, processes, technology and people to deliver high-quality and effective services to, for and with citizens. This requirement creates a challenge for the skills and capabilities of everyone involved, including senior decision-makers, senior responsible owners, delivery teams, digital leaders, those providing assurance and suppliers and delivery partners.”
The challenges in implementing digital change,
"Understanding the implications of the digital world is no longer a nice to have for senior leaders in the public sector, but a must-have. With technology ever-present in all aspects of modern life, taking responsibility for maximising its benefits and mitigating its harms is every leader’s priority."

“Digital products are increasingly driving the way we live and work, the public sector is no exception. Since the best products are made with the user in mind, it is becoming increasingly important for us to understand the processes and approaches behind product creation and user-centered design. The more we understand, the better feedback we can give, and the more involved we will be in the building of better products.”
