The social and environmental issues we now face at a local and global level is laced with greater volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. This means public agencies need to think creatively when it comes to strategic planning and delivery. Staying relevant requires leaders to move outside their comfort zone and collaborate with all stakeholders to achieve a positive disruption.
In this disruptive age of complex, multidimensional problems it’s no longer business as usual. Modern workplaces are shaking up how we work. No longer the domain of the 9 to 5, the new modern workplace doesn’t involve sitting at a desk pushing out emails and reports going nowhere. Instead, it offers a plethora of virtual and co-shared workspaces, a smorgasbord of portfolio careers, and the opportunity to build start-ups and bring creativity back to the business roundtable. Although these changes may seem too much for some of us, what this modern workplace does do is encourage a new ecosystem of collaboration, co-creation, connection and mutual prosperity.
