“Emerging stronger from a crisis”

What lessons should officials learn from the Covid-19 pandemic? How sustainable is the public sector's drive for modernisation? And how can public sector bodies make the most of the particular dynamics of this change?

At their meeting on 26 March 2021, the members of the Advisory Board discussed new strategies for making the public sector more resilient to future crises. There was an evident consensus that this requires a sustainable change of culture within public sector bodies.

Expert Dialogue 2019: Public service sector

In April 2019, the members of PD’s Advisory Board discussed the future of the public service sector in light of current demographic trends and the resulting skilled labour shortages. The conference transcript “The future of the public sector” contains a record of essential points made during the talks as well as key working group outputs.

One focus topic was the public sector’s attractiveness as an employer. The younger generations’ demand for modern workplaces and digital processes are a great opportunity for creating a “public sector of the future”. The Advisory Board also discussed recruitment strategies, hiring processes and structured training programs.

Expert Dialogue 2018: Digitalisation

The conference transcript “All about Digitalisation” comprises the highlights of the two-day PD Advisory Board discussions in April 2018: the opportunities and risks presented by digitalisation, insights into the practical application, and the future of digital administrations.

The contributions examined the topic of digitalisation from a number of different angles. This included shedding light on the opportunities and risks of digitalisation for communal service provision and for simplifying complex administrative procedures. One case example looked into the required steps for implementing the E-Government Act. In-depth examinations of innovative technologies and artificial intelligence also showed what the future of a digital public sector could look like.
