Join a discussion about CS modernisation and reform

Our Civil Service shaping our future together written on a green background surrounded by round pictures of peopleded by

We have been working with the Cabinet Office Modernisation and Reform team to bring you this session where you will hear the latest, exciting plans for modernisation and reform. We are building on the great work already taking place across the Civil Service and ensuring we have the systems, tools and resources in place to deliver for citizens.

So whether it is roles which are moved closer to the communities we serve, IT systems which work across departmental boundaries or better sharing of data, we will be able to meet our shared ambitions for the future. 

We will review what you consider as collaboration, followed with the modernisation and reform team discussing the launch of the new CS reform statement and hear from existing champions and what it means to them.

Civil Service Live 2020 was the moment the ‘Reform Prospectus,' was launched making the positive case for change in the Civil Service and inviting our many colleagues to get involved in shaping that future.  14,000 detailed contributions were received which have informed the development of the modernisation and reform programme over the last 9 months.

What does modernisation and reform mean to you and would you like to become a champion for your department, the team have an ambition of recruiting 5,000 champions to take the plans forward.  The champions network continues to lead the way on reform, shaping our and others' thinking, with excellent sessions on recruitment, induction, branding and what good leadership should look like in the future Civil Service.

Come and join us,  have your say and sign up to become a champion

    I have had a look at the prospectus. As we are bid to do, I went to to find.................nothing much.

    There is also the suggestion here that we can become a champion for our department but how do we do that please? I may not be able to attend on the 26th due to other commitments, where does that leave me?

    Many of these issues are pertinent to a project that I am involved with for the Future Leaders Academy but I am sorry to say that I am not reassured that this initiative is in any way meaningful by what I am seeing here.
