Thursday 24th January 2013 (Cardiff) & Wednesday 30th January 2013 (Bangor)
Wales Audit Office, Cardiff & University of Bangor
The Wales Audit Office, the WLGA and Chwarae Teg are holding a Shared Learning Seminar on the latest ideas and practices in how public sector organisations are developing agile working.
Cardiff Seminar - NOW FULL!
The benefits of agile working practices are more relevant than ever with the current economic climate. The notion of agile working extends beyond the traditional flexible working for individuals and aims to develop a culture that sees the public sector make the best use of its diminishing resources whilst ensuring improving and responsive service delivery. There is a significant desire across the public services to exchange knowledge so that practices can be shared, learned or improved, particularly in relation to:
• Review existing flexibility in working arrangements;
• Review/rationalising of expensive property portfolios.
• Introducing agile working practice through the use of ICT; and
• The inter-relationship between these key issues of People, Places and Processes
Attendance is free.
The seminar is aimed at Welsh Public and Third sector roles in particular:
• Change Managers;
• Policy Leads: and
• Key Professionals from HR, Asset Managers and ICT
Meeting colleagues from across the Welsh public sector that are experiencing similar issues to enable you to share and learn from
The seminar will consist of:
1 Two innovative showcase plenary sessions by Indycube and Norma Jarboe:
2 A choice of attending two of the following interactive workshops from:
• Bridgend CBC, who have reviewed and rationalised their property portfolio and realised savings as well as developing improved, adaptable working environments; or

• Chwarae Teg who have developed practices to support managers introduce a flexible working environment.
