The public rightly expects that public sector organisations should have appropriate standards of governance, management and accountability in place. At the same time, however, we want these organisations to pursue cost-effective policy and service delivery outcomes by taking calculated risks.
So how much risk should public agencies be prepared to take to maximise opportunities for innovative solutions and policy outcomes? Does avoiding risk necessarily impede progress – and how important is savvy risk management to best practice decision-making?
Join a panel of seasoned leaders from the Auditor-General’s Office, DPC, DHHS and Medibank as they debunk the belief that public sector organisations should be risk averse – and showcase a number of innovative projects to bring about positive change.
Participants will be invited to send in real-life examples to generate discussion on how much risk you can take when you innovate – and to weigh up the importance of risk management and mitigation in effective decision-making.
3.00pm-4.00pm: Afternoon tea
