Interactive Workshops

Workshops A : Tuesday 31 July 2018

7:00 am - 9:15 am Creating Your Digital Service Delivery Strategy: Reengineering Services to Position Your Organisation for Digital Transformation

The DTA’s Digital Service Standard is used to ensure digital teams build simple, clear and fast services through meeting 13 key criteria. While only applying to Commonwealth information and transactional services, state, territory and local government services are welcome to benchmark and apply the standard to improve delivery. As there isn’t a compulsory standard or framework for developing a digital service strategy, organisations much understand their own capabilities and determine the direction and journey to embark on while continuously meeting customer needs. To get ahead in 2018, this workshop will look at first-hand how to reengineer your services to accelerate your digital strategy for future transformation.

Enjoy a complimentary breakfast, tea and coffee while you learn about:

  • How to effectively evaluate and collate feedback to carefully determine what needs to be updated to benefit your organisation and future transformation
  • Designing and building platforms that consider privacy, security, quality reliability and value for money
  • Understanding what you could do to ensure staff and executive buy-in to improve capability and performance standards during transformation
  • Strengthening core technology and internal capability to build success
