Overview

Leading Change in Times of chaos:  turning obstacles into opportunities

 

description

The COVID-19 has been an accelerant for innovation and modernization.  The Federal government impacts nearly every aspect of American life, contributing to the health, safety, security and economic stability of people in America and throughout the world.  Whether it's ensuring the safety of the food we eat and the water we drink, responding to national emergencies, providing benefits for veterans with disabilities, enhancing the safety and reliability of our transportation systems, protecting our borders, defending our nation, issuing warnings on hurricanes, providing guidance on global pandemics and overseeing the treatment and vaccine to eradicate COVID-19, we count on our government to protect us and preserve our way of life.

Over the past several years, the government has focused on modernizing its technical infrastructure through cloud technology, leveraging emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and robotic process automation, improving the use of open data to improve government services.  COVID-19 has spotlighted the gaps in agencies where progress hadn't happened.  At the same time, it highlighted agencies where those improvements had already been made.

ACT-IAC is pleased to collaborate on this event with Dorris Consulting Inc.

8:30 am to 9:15 am
Turning A Chaos into Opportunity

Every obstacle is an opportunity waiting to reveal itself.  COVID-19 provided a crisis that required government and industry to "think out of the box" but within the limits of policy and law.  In some instances, it may require that policies be changed.  Agencies had to continue with their day-to-day operations, move employees to work from home (WFH) while delivering services to their customers and the employees that support them.  In this session, we will learn from agencies that have faced these obstacles of COVID-19 to transform services.

Meddie Brown, Director, Public Experience Portfolio,  Technology Transformation Services, General Services Administration (Invited)
Simchah Suveyke Bogin, Chief Customer Experience Officer, Department of Agriculture (Invited)
Barbara Morton, Deputy Chief Veterans Experience Officer, Department of Veterans Affairs (Invited)

9:15 am to 10:00 am
Future of Work - How Employee Experience Drives CX

Working from Home (WFH) required the agency leadership at all levels to ensure the health and safety of their employees while delivering existing and new services.  Employees were and still are faced with working while caring for and teaching their children.  The future workplace requires the effective use of people, process and technology.  Technology, including computers and collaboration platforms were needed along with new practices to work effectively.  Learn how agencies successfully transitioned to WFH and continued meeting their mission.

End-to-End Digital Services, All the Components of Creating the "Wow" Experience

Whether it’s paying your taxes, obtaining healthcare, understanding and collecting benefits, knowing where and when it’s safe to return to their pre-COVID lives, this pandemic has exposed the need for the public and employees to interact and engage with the government through end-to-end digital services. The public has experienced many new and touchless experiences in their personal lives such as having a telehealth appointment. How can the government leverage these experiences and the way they are conducting business now - keep what works and tweak what doesn't? What are the tactics that allow the government to respond with speed, efficiency and effectiveness?

Breaking Down the Silos in the C-Suite

Agency's ability to move to secure, ubiquitous telework and continue normal operations almost immediately when the pandemic struck requires the C-suite to work together.  Of course, if they already have a collaborative relationship, they are ahead of the game.  If not, how did they forge this relationship to ensure that these critical organizations ensure that they can continue their operations and provide the new services in different ways required by the public.
