The tech industry has increasingly implemented agile delivery practices, where detailed design is replaced by very short delivery cycles called sprints. Sprints focus on generating immediate incremental business value in a repeatable way, with deliberate learning and adaptation. In use for over 20 years, agile software development is now considered by many to be a more effective way of delivering software than methods requiring big up-front design.

This approach isn't very compatible with the long-cycle investment planning and approvals we practice in the public service. Accountability for use of public funds to deliver promised benefits is difficult when we are frequently learning, pivoting, and reprioritizing value to be delivered. Yet, is it better to deliver what was promised or what we learn is needed? Can we apply the learnings of the tech industry to improve investment planning and measurements of success in the public service?


Tyler Gooch has served the citizens of Winnipeg as Director of Innovation & Technology for the city since early 2021. In this role he leads delivery of digital services and innovation programming for the city. Winnipeg was named the most intelligent community for 2021 by the Intelligent Community Forum, and one of the world’s 100 greatest places of 2021 by TIME.

Prior to the City of Winnipeg, Tyler was the Chief Digital Officer for the Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC), from 2016 to 2021. MASC is a provincial crown corporation providing agricultural insurance and credit products. Tyler led strategic planning and transformation of the corporation’s business model to focus on a digital-first omnichannel customer experience, innovative service delivery, and customer-focused product development.

Before joining MASC, Tyler was the Associate Vice President of Administration and Chief Information Officer for Olds College in Olds, Alberta. Olds College is Canada’s Smart Agriculture college specializing in agriculture, horticulture, land and environmental stewardship. Tyler led administrative and corporate services for the college, including talent management, information technology, library services, facility management, college sustainability, and campus retail.

Tyler is an active promoter of collaboration in digital service delivery across the public sector and has served as a board member and in voluntary roles on Canada’s Big Cities Executive Partnership, Manitoba’s Public Sector CIO Advisory Board, and the Manitoba Chapter of the CIO Association of Canada.

Tyler holds a Master of Public Administration from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia and a Bachelor of Science from the University of Lethbridge in Lethbridge, Alberta.
