What does change look like at your organization?


Only the agencies that are built to sustain transformation and change are ready to take on new challenges and meet their missions effectively.

Join us online Wednesday, Aug. 17 from 10 a.m.-2:10 p.m. ET/7-11:10 a.m. PT as we take a closer look at transformation in the public sector and how it impacts everything - the work you do, the processes you rely on, the technology you use, and even how your team is managed.

Specifically, you'll learn:

  • How agencies can give employees the tools they need to do their jobs most effectively.
  • How agencies can overcome the institutional nature of legacy systems and find workarounds that actually work.
  • Success stories from organizations who have pioneered transformation efforts.

[10-10:55 a.m. ET/7-7:55 a.m. PT]
Session 1: Why Agility Matters in Transformation

Government Opening Keynote: How Gov Can Think Differently About Transformation
  • Dorothy Aronson, Chief Information Officer, National Science Foundation
Throw out all the salt in cooking? It’s not possible…or at the very least not very easy. Neither is starting over at an agency with brand new technologies and processes. Much like salt in our food, governments come with legacy infrastructures and processes. In this opening government keynote, you will hear from an agency innovator who has rethought how to transform organizations coupled with the reality of government networks.

Session 2: How to Embrace Modernization One Step at a Time

Government Lightning Keynote: 3 Things to Make Gov Transformation Easier
  • Raylene Yung, Executive Director, Technology Modernization Fund, General Services Administration
Many agencies continue to rely on a bad diet of legacy technology and processes. They know they need to cut back dramatically, but it just doesn't seem possible. In this opening government keynote, you will hear from an agency innovator who has rethought how to transform organizations while reckoning with the reality of government networks.

Session 3: Securing the Future of Government Transformation

Government Lightning Keynote: Meeting the Mission…Securely
  • Nancy Rainosek, Statewide Governance Risk and Compliance Program Manager, State of Texas, Department of Information Resources
There's an old joke that agencies could provide perfect security for their systems if they only took everything offline and went back to using manual, paper-based processes. The only problem is that they wouldn't be able to meet their missions. Obviously, that's not an option, but neither is leaving their networks, applications and data vulnerable to attacks. In this lightning keynote, you will hear how agencies are working to improve their cybersecurity postures with a mission-first approach.

Session 4: A New Era in Government

Government Lightning Keynote: Bygone Government to a New Frontier
  • Heidi Norman, CIO, City of Pittsburg
The idea that government agencies are slow to embrace change is a myth. Well, it mostly a myth. But it doesn't have to be the case. In fact, the past 2 years have proven that governments can and do change in response to massive shifts in the way we can and do work. In this lightning keynote, you will hear from a government leader about the next frontier in the government's ongoing evolution.
