Innovation and Collaboration for Growth

Innovation and Collaboration for Growth is course run by Institute of Public Administration, Dublin. It is a 'Seminar' course with a duration of Three x Morning Seminars. For more information about Innovation and Collaboration for Growth at Institute of Public Administration, please review the details below.

Innovation and Collaboration are at the heart of developing more cost effective, personalised and responsive public services as set out in Our Public Service 2020. This requires public service leaders to enhance their leadership capabilities to drive collaboration across organisations and their sectors.

We know that better ideas and improved outcomes come through collaboration but it is difficult to get it right. Leading such processes requires the deliberate development of:

  • Right Mindset – to challenge own thinking, perspectives, worldview.
  • Appropriate Skillset – to enable collaboration and innovation across the organisation.
  • Supportive Toolkit – to develop capacity to collaborate and be innovative about services, processes and people engagement.

This is why our new series “Innovation and Collaboration for Growth” offers participants, over a number of seminars, an opportunity to focus on:

  • Building a more open and collaborative mindset;
  • Identifying requisite skills to create zones of innovation in their organisation;
  • Expanding the use of tools to lead processes of effective problem solving.

The seminar format will vary according to the topic. We will integrate case examples, visiting speakers and input from participants to complement the IPA experience in this area as a way to stimulate fresh thinking and build a cohort of effective practice in the Irish Public Sector.

This seminar series is aimed at senior public servants responsible for driving cultural change to work more effectively by enhancing collaboration for innovation in thought and practice by those leading collaborative and innovation initiatives.

Seminars are scheduled for 11 June, 24 September and 19 November 2019 at the Institute of Public Administration.
