After the impact of the coronavirus and the cost of living squeeze, government finances are under unprecedented pressure. As a result, many governments are having to slow increases in public spending and limit pay deals for civil servants.
At the same time, public finance – and the finance ministries that hold the purse strings – are vital to helping unlock the government of the future. Often, civil servants involved in transformation report frustration with how government finance ministries fund projects, with short budget cycles, complicated approval; processes, and a need to specify the output at the outset often hindering more agile approaches.
This webinar will look at how the finance ministries of government can become the catalysts of innovation. It will look at the way governments currently fund government services to look at whether there are ways to improve the allocation of funding for innovation, and how the structures of government can be reviewed and renewed to encourage the use of agile approaches in all areas.
