Government Digital

The Quest to Regain Public Trust

Published September 2018

Description

Governments all over the world are consistently outpaced by digital change, and are falling behind.

Digital government is a better performing government. It is better at providing services people and businesses need. Receiving benefits, accessing health records, registering companies, applying for licences, voting — all of this can be done online or through digital self-service. Digital technology makes government more efficient, reduces hassle, and lowers costs. But what will it take to make governments digital?

Good governance will take nothing short of a metamorphosis of the public sector. With contributions from industry, academic, and government experts — including Hillary Hartley, chief digital officer for Ontario, and Salim Ismail, founder of Singularity University — Government Digital lays down a blueprint for this radical change.
