Hack Theme

How to Build a High Performance Organisation of the Future, Today

How does your public service agency successfully respond and thrive in a world where the roles of government, their bureaucracies and the services they provide are being reshaped in the context of technological transformation, changing expectations of citizens and a complicated globalized world? 

The Purpose of the Hack

The purpose of the Hack is for each Agency Team who attends to have an actionable, effective, high performance strategy that will see them achieve their chosen goal.

  • Within the parameters of the Hack theme, solve a core goal for your Agency or finally resolve an outstanding challenge 
  • Unite and empower your leaders to strategise towards resolving your goal, using a high performance lens in a high performance environment
  • Have a clear and highly effective strategy for your Agency to action back in the workplace
  • Chatham House Rules apply

High Performance Lens 

The term High Performance will be defined as a "mindset" at the Hack, rather than systematic or operational productivity, and will encompass; 

A Growth Mindset | Self Leadership | Total Accountability | Emotional Intelligence | Resilience & Determination

The answers to creating progress and success don't lie in managing under-performance. The solutions come from fostering and developing High Performance.

The Hack Process 

1. Pick your Goal

Each Agency must identify a core goal that they want to achieve, or identify a challenge that they haven't yet been able to resolve. 

The Goal must sit within the broad genre of the Hack Theme- Building a High Performance Organisation of the Future, Today.

There will be some parameters set for the Goal, such as; 

  • The goal must be humancentric i.e. the goal cannot be overtly technical or relating to a technological matter

  • The goal must propel new ways of thinking and should consist of an ambition as well as constraints

As part of your participation in the Hack, Yellow Edge will work with your nominated teams to help frame a suitable goal prior to the Hack.

2. Pick your Team

Hand pick a team of 4 - 6 Leaders from your Agency who will spend two powerful and productive days together as they hack their way to a solution for your specific Agency goal.

Each Team must have approval from all relevant managers at their Agency so they can effectively work towards a practical solution and strategy for their goal at the Hack. Teams will then implement that strategy once they are back in the workplace.

It is important to note that the Hack process is not an academic exercise, nor a hypothetical scenario. The intention is for the goal strategy to be actioned back in the workplace, creating tangible results and positive change at each Agency post the Hack.

3. Don't miss out

Attendance is invitation only and places are strictly limited.
