Accelerating Innovation in Government

This event offers a great opportunity to hear from one of government’s most innovative leaders Roger Baker, Assistant Secretary for Information and Technology, U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs.  Drawing from his personal experience in the public and private sectors Mr. Baker will discuss the importance of innovation in government today and the role it plays in his direct management of an organization of over 7,500 and a budget of over $3.3 billion.   This session will focus on innovation from a leadership perspective and his commitment to finding innovative solutions for the challenges facing VA and the government.  Mr. Baker will discuss ways to accomplish innovation now when "the Bureaucracy" seems to work against it and how people can innovate from where they are in their organization.

 

Moderating this dynamic discussion will be Dr. Dave McClure, GSA’s Associate Administrator, Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies, charged with fostering public engagement by using innovative technologies to connect citizens to government information and services.
