About the Seminar
In the wake of the deep austerity facing most governments around the world, leaders are faced with the challenge to “do more with less.” Unfortunately, typical cost reduction exercises inevitably result in a difficult trade-off – between price or performance. Breaking this seemingly unavoidable trade-off will require leaders to look at the public sector in a whole new way. The key to radically reducing costs, while maintaining or even improving services, is disruptive innovation. Creating the conditions for disruption will require policymakers to view government through a different lens. This seminar will provide examples of opportunities to implement disruptive innovation and offers a framework to introduce it in the public sector – proposing an alternative path to significantly reduce costs without sacrificing the quality of services.
