Leadership Connect held a webinar on emerging technology with three expert panelists from the federal government. The panel discussed how their organizations leverage opportunities and adopt best practices to implement emerging technology. Key takeaways on how emerging technologies have assisted agencies in the following areas include:
- Data collection: Faster and more accurate data collection can move processes along and better serve clients and agency mission
- Privacy: New methods of privacy in regard to cybersecurity and secure networks requires a change in thinking and the use of trusted external sources
- People management: Proper recruiting, placement, and management rely on new forms of data collection and analysis to ensure that personnel are being used to their full potential within an agency
- Remote working: Hybrid work is essential and virtual communication methods must be welcomed and implemented to keep everyone connected and ensure successful mission outcomes
