I have been invited to participate in a Scottish Business Insider/BT Digital Nation Round Table this coming Friday, being held at the University of Strathclyde's new Technology Innovation Centre (TIC).
A number of challenging questions have been presented to provide focus to the discussion.
Friends and colleagues will know that I have strong views on most of the issues listed below which I will be expressing on the day.
I would be interested in your own thoughts and comments which I will be happy to communicate to the group.
If you would like to comment, please do so on Linkedin at Digital Nation Round Table.
- Is Scotland's digital ambition/strategy ambitious enough? What can we learn from other small countries?
- How can we keep pace with digital disruption in the economy?
- Is the focus too narrow, does a digital agenda need to be driven out across the policy spectrum?
- What should digital transformation in the public sector look like?
- Are national targets required and what metrics can be used to measure progress?
- Is it deliverable? What are the barriers and how can they be overcome?
- What cultural shift or behavioural change is needed to bring about the scale of reform needed?
- How do we instil trust with the public at large on how the public sector manages cyber resilience and the use of personal data?
- Is the pace of change fast enough? How do we ensure no one is left behind?
An edited transcript of the Round Table will appear in the March/April issue of Insider.
Thanks and take care.
ps - my own thoughts on the questions listed above have been expressed in a number of previous blog posts - please see https://www.linkedin.com/in/drjimhamill/detail/recent-activity/posts/
