Could "Automated" Digital Workers Save the NHS, and Police, and Local Government?

Document 3271743 1280 2

As the debate on whether automation will deplete, displace or create jobs rages on, I thought it worth continuing our blog series on automation by looking at a sector where the demand for front line workers is already outstripping supply; the UK Public Sector. In every part of government, from central to local, health to social care, work and pensions to HMRC, the volume of demand to deliver more services, better joined up services, and more intelligent personal services and to do so in a spending envelope which under any future hue of party politics will always be constrained, is a topic not only debated in the corridors of power, but also on the front pages of the press and radio talk shows across the country.

New Employee Preparation – Are we ready for our new digital colleagues? Have we prepared the environment and made sure all the processes and tools they need to be successful are in place?  Are the work processes they are expected to deliver so poor that they will be fighting from day one to be successful?  Have we spent time ensuring their role in the business is well defined and that other resources, processes, people and systems are aligned to give my new digital employee the greatest chances of success?  Good preparation for digital workers by improving existing processes, laying the groundwork on systems, and ensuring their role is integrated into the rest of the business is as vital to their success as any human employee.

Chief Automation Officer - Is it more important to have a CAO than CDO around the boardroom table?

The import of the Chief Digital Officer has been much talked about over the last few years, so much so I was lured into using this fancy new title myself.  You always know if a title says what it does on the tin by the number of times you need to explain exactly what the role entails, what your specific responsibilities are, and exactly what you are paid to deliver.
