Public Sector Innovation Manager's Crash Course





July 26, 2017



9:00 am – 5:00 pm


Collective Campus

Level 1, 20 Queen Street Melbourne, VIC 3000

The Event Will Start In



This crash course is for innovation managers who are either looking for an introduction to or a refresh in the fundamentals of public sector innovation (no, it's not an oxymoron!).

We've worked with the likes of ASIC and wholly-owned Government entities such as City West Water on their innovation objectives and for the past two years, we've hosted Disrupt The Public Sector, a one-day conference that brings together thought leaders to discuss innovation in the Victorian public sector.

Over one day we'll equip you with the mindsets, methodologies and tools you need to help you successfully navigate the minefield that is public sector innovation, by focusing on the top 20% of things you will need to know in order to get 80% of the results. By focusing not on what every innovation manager gets right, but by focusing on what most innovation managers get wrong, we can help you develop a competitive advantage over your peers in a short amount of time.

Your facilitator ,Steve Glaveski, has worked for and consulted for the likes of the Department of Defence, CenITex, The Department of Justice and the Victorian Auditor General's Office.

Watch Steve present on Agile Government here.

Kevin Young, Innovation Manager

Steve and the team at Collective Campus facilitated and structured a hackathon event for us with great results. Collective Campus provided us with new and different experimentation tools and techniques, which enabled us to progress quickly on all our ideas.

Oliver Hoy, INNOVATION Manager

"The lean startup bootcamp is a great way for employees to learn the fundamentals of entrepreneurship, life in a startup and how to diverge from their normal way of thinking. Highly recommended."
