With hosts Natalie Crandall and Valeria Sosa, Innovate on Demand is a podcast series centralized around the theme of Innovation – the good and the bad. In line with the Canada School of Public Service’s mandate for learning, this podcast will allow public servants, passionate about innovation, to learn and share “on demand” and their convenience. Produced by Todd Lyons on behalf of the Canada School of Public Service. An accessible version of this podcast can be found on the Canada School of Public Service’s external facing website.
On a Mission
Christiana Cavazzoni, Associate Assistant Deputy Minister and Deputy Chief Information Officer from the Department of National Defence, reflects on her ten year career in the public service, and how innovation has evolved.
How can we map data literacy within the public service, and how can organizations analyze their data competencies to further their data readiness and maturity?
A Culture of Experimentation
In today's day and age, organizations must make experimentation an integral part of business to keep pace with market leaders. But if it's so vital, why aren't more organizations taking this approach? Nurturing curiosity, empowering every employee to spearhead change, and embracing failure can seem risky and inefficient.
Have you ever had an idea that has the potential to innovate the public service, and wished you had a peer group to act as a sounding board in developing and presenting it? On this episode, Tracey Snow, Acting Manager with the Canada Revenue Agency, talks about her experience with this.
A Conversation with Anil Arora
In this episode, we sat down with Anil Arora, Chief Statistician of Canada, to discuss transformation within the public service and its impact on the way we use and interpret data.
Digital Literacy, Mobility, Sovereignty
In the digital sphere, the public service has come a long way in facilitating internal collaboration and adopting best practices from other governments and organizations. What skills and knowledge should we strive to increase, because as we discussed on a previous episode, what got us here isn't going to get us to the next level.
