The Government of the Future Series: Defining Success During Periods of Uncertainty


During times of uncertainty, rapid change or disruption, how we define and measure success may actually limit us from being innovative in our work

This second event in the Government of the Future Series explores how success is defined in the Government of Canada and its impact on how we think about innovation, risk taking, design, and decision making when implementing policies and programs. Speakers will present recent trajectories of successful policies and discuss some of the conditions for success in innovation.

Learn about factors for success, including the importance of incentives and organizational culture, to policy and program innovation.
