Hosted By: Capital Chapter Chapter
Deliverology – The Role of the Strategic Advisor
Location: La Plaza Gatineau – Crowne Plaza Gatineau-Ottawa, 2 Montcalm Street, Gatineau
09:00h - 16:00h

To launch the FMI-Capital Chapter 2016-17 programming year, an in-depth look the Strategic Advisor role in a new “results-focused environment” – a New Policy on Results and the concept of  “deliverology” as it is implemented for federal programs and services is our focus for the day. 

This government has taken to this concept in an active and energetic way, wanting to embrace the public sector results seen world-wide.  

How can we both support and leverage this momentum?  The framework of the Government Expenditure management cycle and that of reporting to Parliament is changing and we are all directly implicated. 

We will hear from our leaders in PCO and the OCG as well as early adopters in departments and agencies.  What is the impact in a regulatory organization? A policy department?  A direct service delivery department? How do we get out in front and lead the charge for more effective and relevant reporting? How is your role as a strategic advisor shifting because of Deliverology?  What do WE understand by deliverology and how can we use it to its best advantage? 

This session will be of broad interest to all members of the public sector who provide advice in their daily jobs – Strategic Policy, Planning and Reporting, Procurement, Legal Services, Human Resources, Treasury Board Submissions, etc.  Come see what the new Policy on Results will mean to your daily work!
