Public Leadership in the Digital Age

Make sense of how the digital age is changing the public sector landscape








October-November 2024 (exact dates TBC)


The Public Leadership in the Digital Age (PLDA) is a new program from the Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG).  

We are now taking expressions of interest for the first full delivery of this program in October-November 2024. Please submit your expression of interest here if you would like us to contact you when applications for this program open.  

The ‘digital age’ is fundamentally changing the landscape of public leadership, demanding a new set of skills and approaches. Public leadership responsibilities have expanded to include navigating rapid technological change, fostering innovation, and embracing the potential of the digital age.  

This program, which is aimed at Deputy Secretary and Executive Director level leaders, provides a way to think about and act on the opportunities and risks of the digital age they are already encountering.   

Think – embrace the mindsets, questions and frameworks to make sense of the leadership landscape shaped by the digital age 

Act – learn how to use the tools and frameworks to take good decisions with a growing sense of practical confidence.  

What will you learn?

Leaders who undertake the program will be able to: 

  • Think their way into the dilemmas and challenges of digital public leadership and feel more confident in their ability to take better decisions. 
  • Feel a measurable shift along the spectrum from “fear” to “familiarity” about critical aspects of the public leadership role and function in a digital age. 
  • Support their teams, their agency and the wider public sector to engage the opportunities and risks of the digital era with confidence and impact. 

Who should attend?

This program is aimed at Deputy Secretary and Executive Director levels, or their equivalents, in the Australian and State/Territory public services and in the public service in Aotearoa New Zealand.
