DESCRIPTION: Since the UK started the Government Digital Service in 2010, we've seen the US Digital Service, and 18F follow suit at the federal level, with Georgia (and soon California) at the state level, and a handful of cities including San Francisco, Asheville also taking the plunge. Now the Canadian Digital Service is the latest initiative to reshape government services. Each of these offers incredible learning opportunities for those who follow, and each is doing their best to learn from what has gone before. Across these efforts, the challenges are familiar: to build digital capability throughout the entirety of government, all while managing risk, aversion to change, and ensuring we only make new mistakes. Come if you're part of one of these groups today, or are thinking about starting or joining one. Let's all learn together, and only make new mistakes!

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Anyone working within digital government will find the case studies and lessons learned both relevant and interesting; that said, individuals in the process of starting or joining a digital service (nascent or otherwise) will find the session of particular use.
