In a nutshell:
Improving organisational processes is an important element of the eGovernment Action Plan 2011-2015 under the policy area of Efficiency and Effectiveness of Governments and Administrations. This focuses on using ICT and enabling organisational changes to deliver better, less intrusive, more sustainable and faster public services, by reducing the administrative burden, improving organisational processes and promoting a sustainable low-carbon economy.
The eGovernment Action Plan calls upon the Commission to "facilitate the exchange of experience, encouraging re-use of successful solutions and applications and exploring new approaches to support the Member States in improving organisational processes".
In this context, the European Commission (DG Connect unit H3 Public Services) in collaboration with ePractice.eu is organising the Improving Organisational Processes event on 1 October 2013 in Brussels. It aims to facilitate the exchange of experience, encouraging re-use of successful solutions and applications and exploring new approaches to support the Member States in improving organisational processes in the public sector and in their interaction with citizens and businesses.
The initiatives would evolve around the following axes:
- Moving the government modernisation agenda forward, by developing optimal policies and organisational processes to prepare public administrations to cope with the ICT-led and enabled change.
- Promoting performance and value-driven process for public administration (best practices, self-assessment tools etc.).
- Adopting ICTs that promote eSkills for civil servants, ensuring that they are digitally literate.
- Providing a coordinated and timely response to implement organizational change successfully.
The event aims to engage stakeholders from Member States, academia and industry and utilise their experience to promote modernisation of public administrations and improvement of public organisation processes. It will provide information to stakeholders about the efforts and tools to improve their organisational processes, but also to engage them in an efficient exchange of perceptions and best practices.
