APS Innovation Awards – Testing we’re on the right track

[Originally published on the Australian Government Public Sector Innovation Network under a Creative Commons 3.0 BY AU licence]

We’re seeking the help of our colleagues to test that we’re on the right track with the development of the new Innovation Awards for the Australian Public Service (APS).

As we shared earlier in the year, we’re working with IPAA ACT to establish a set of innovation awards to recognise some of the novel things happening across the public service.

The working group has made a lot of progress, and we’re getting quite excited about launching the awards next year.

Before we do so though, we’d like to make sure that we really are on the right track.

To do so, we need some help – and that’s where you come in!

We’re going to test some of the elements of the award process to check that what we’re proposing will work. We’ll run a workshop to go over some of the elements – such as the awards process and what people might expect to see from the awards – and see whether they’ll hit the mark.

If you are in the APS and would be available to participate in the workshop in January, likely to be held on the 18th, 19th or 20th, please get in touch.
