This period in history is about leadership not only out of the pandemic, but away from old paradigms and towards investment in major structural change.
It’s clear that public sector leaders face challenges and opportunities in four key areas:
1. The massive shift online and the new blend of the physical and digital world in daily life, in other words the new hybrid society
2. Today’s new leadership demands including huge public spending to rescue economies, the urgency of climate change, and the growing wealth, race and gender gaps
3. Constant waves of new technologies that make innovation possible.
4. With the shift to digital, there are now huge data lakes and massive access to data.
The question is what are governments going to do with it?
