Beyond the Trend podcast series

Join us for conversations with government leaders to explore the emerging trends impacting the public sector

Deloitte’s Beyond the Trend podcast explores the most transformative trends impacting government today, taking you behind the scenes as we discuss the movements that are shaping our nation.

Throughout this series we will be joined by government leaders and public sector influencers to get an insight into how the trends are impacting their day-to-day role and what it means for their organisations.

The trends covered in this series derive from Deloitte’s global Government Trends Report which distils years of research on government operations, coupled with on-the-ground coverage of what is happening in the trenches right now.

Governments use information technology to improve policy, decision-making, and service delivery by gleaning useful insights from data. But disparate leadership, priorities, and budgets have created a patchwork approach to technology adoption, with no guarantee that systems can easily communicate.

This situation began changing rapidly as the COVID-19 pandemic began. As policymakers and health experts desperately sought up-to-date information, governments were forced to break down data silos, coordinate with companies and universities, and expand their roster of data talent.

In this episode Greg Frith, Partner in Consulting Strategy AI and Transformation and Marek Rucinski - Deputy Commissioner - Head of Smarter Data Program - Australian Taxation Office | LinkedIn, Deputy Commissioner of the Smarter Data Program in the Australian Taxation Office explore how government agencies can push for efficiency and effectiveness while maintaining citizen trust and ethics.
