Public sector actors play an important role in the development of an agile culture in society and in the well-being of society as a whole. How does the agile transformation work of a public funded company or community reflect the values of your organisation? How do agile methods and practices apply to both management and expert work when you are in areas outside traditional agile? What have you learned from agile in public funded projects? How does strong value based approach affect decision making, leadership and agility?

Olli-Pekka Heinonen

Unlearn or die!

Public service is full of assumptions that hinder us to concentrate on adding value to citizens. Most used procedures to increase operational efficiency in fact decrease it. Public service needs to reinvent itself to answer the crowing expectations of citizens and solve the wicked problems of our times.

Jaana Majakangas

Lessons learnt from public sector agile projects

Is agile transformation possible and can agile projects be successful in public sector? Yes, they can, but there are several pitfalls to avoid. In this talk we will share some of the things we have learnt from the public sector projects. Regardless of the domain, projects face similar challenges. We’ll also have some solutions or advice to these challenges.

Towards agile, cross-sectoral, open minded and future orientented Government

Many societal problems, such as climate change and increasing social inequality, are complex and interdependent phenomena that should be examined more comprehensively than is presently done. The current siloed administration and the level of detail and microscale nature of legislation and budgeting, however, make it significantly harder to apply a cross-administrative, comprehensive approach. So-called ‘Phenomen -based’ orientation and a drive for agile, explorative ways of preparation are strongly needed. One concrete step towards a new ecosystem-platform is Work2.0Lab.

Agile in Public Service Media

Public Service Media (PSM) are in the eye of the storm: content and platform proliferation, competition from global tech giants, a crisis of trust, funding cuts, and political polarization. These issues all threaten the role PSM plays in a healthy society. As a result, PSM needs to be closer to their audiences than ever before: listening, learning, and adapting and improving its content and services. Whilst PSM tend to suffer extremes of legacy structures and processes, the public value mindset carries a huge potential for innovation, creativity, and an openness to change.At the EBU we have a unique macro European view, so I’ll be talking about how PSM is using agile methods and approaches as enablers for digital transformation.
