NASCIO offers panel session on private sector lessons for governments
The Lexington, Ky.-based National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) is betting that an exchange of ideas between private and public sector technology leaders will create innovation in government. NASCIO has engaged several private sector leaders for “Transforming Services: Private Sector Lessons for Government,” a panel session to be presented at the 2010 NASCIO Annual Conference, scheduled for Sept. 26-29 in Miami, Fla.
The panel session will explore transforming operations, redesigning business processes, implementing substantial structural changes, and incorporating service innovations to conserve financial resources. “States continue to face major fiscal challenges for the foreseeable future, but at the same time, technology advances and innovations present new opportunities to improve government operations,” says West Virginia CIO Kyle Schafer, NASCIO vice president and chair of the 2010 Programs Committee. “With 37 gubernatorial elections in November 2010, new administrations will be seeking fresh ideas. As economic factors and technological advances converge, there is a compelling need to fundamentally restructure and redesign government.”
A team of state CIOs selected the speakers from a field of corporate member candidates. The panelists include K.C. Choi, vice president for Palo Alto, Calif.-based Compaq/HP Americas Solutions Architecture; Steve Rohleder, group chief executive for London-based Accenture’s Health & Public Service Group; and Mark Templeton, president and CEO for Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Citrix.
The session will take place on the morning of Sept. 28. Learn more about the NASCIO Annual Conference.
