CTG Hosts Visioning Workshop for Government Leaders in the West Indies
CTG was host earlier this week to a visioning workshop for government leaders from the West Indies. "Building Capability for Government Transformation: A Visioning Workshop for Government Leaders" took place in Port of Spain, Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. The workshop was endorsed by the Ministry of Public Administration, Government of Trinidad and Tobago and sponsored by Microsoft Corporation.
Using a capability-based perspective, the workshop presented visionary perspectives on emerging technologies and offered workshop participants a framework to turn those visions into an action plan for their governments. Throughout the three days, over 50 government leaders from the West Indies engaged with thought leaders from CTG, Microsoft, and others in academia and government about the role of technology in fostering public sector innovation.
