Government Trends 2022
What are the most transformational trends in the public sector today?
The year 2020 brought a host of challenges for governments. How did they keep pace with COVID-19 as well as other economic and social disruptions? Nine trends illustrate the most sweeping transformation in governments worldwide.
We invite you to explore this year's ten transformative trends that focus on how governments are striving to become future-ready postpandemic. We cover the most transformative trends in government today, grouped under three themes—building resilience, connected for greater value, and government for all the people.
Pandemic-induced disruption aside, technology shifts, climate change, economic disruption, and supply chain issues are some of the areas in which governments are striving for greater resilience.
Climate-resilient government: How governments are addressing climate change
Governments around the world are prioritizing climate resilience by investing in infrastructure, societal resilience, and data analytics.
Reshoring and “friendshoring” supply chains: Reshaping supply chains to improve economic resilience
Nations are trying to fix supply chain weaknesses by reshoring, but they will also need “friendshoring”—partnering with trusted countries.
Future-proofing the labor force: Enabling the adaptive worker of the future
Government agencies are trying to bridge skills gaps by equipping people to adapt not only to new jobs, but to entirely different fields.
Connected for greater value
Arranging agency structures around “problems” rather than departmental boundaries allows for a better response to complex societal issues. Data-sharing plays a crucial role in this “silo-hacking” effort.
Linked-up government: Building connections for greater impact
Linking up government across agencies, missions, and programs can enable collaborative engagement to tackle tenacious problems.
Data-fueled government: Breaking down silos with turbo-charged data
As governments realized the power of data-sharing during the pandemic, they rushed to adopt tools and rethink the role of the chief data officer.
Government as catalyst: Driving innovation ecosystems
The pandemic showed how government can help speed up innovation. Explore how government can play the role of a catalyzer for public good.
New era of global public health partnerships: Collaborating for better health preparedness
International partnerships can help governments better manage disease and ensure equitable global distribution of health care resources.
Government for all the people
The pandemic threw a spotlight on diversity, equity, and inclusion. It became critical to improve digital access, enhance communication, and reimagine social care to better serve disadvantaged communities.
Digital access for all: Equity in digital service delivery
To ensure digital access for all, government agencies are focusing on infrastructure, design, and transformation of back-end operations.
Designing for inclusive engagement: Digital communications for richer community connection
Governments are trying to engage with communities and become a trusted source of information by redesigning communication methods.
Reimagining social care: Recasting the social safety net
Governments are not just repairing, but reweaving the social safety net to provide equitable, seamless, and effective services.
