Workforces of the future will require advanced digital and data skills to support economies that will become ever more dependent on technologies. That generational shift has been thrown into sharp relief throughout the Covid-19 pandemic as individuals, companies and entire industries have moved online.

Such change also demands a culture shift, where public services move away from moribund and outmoded practices to a world of automation, backed by strong leadership which reflects the agile ways in which the digital world continually evolves.
