Governments at all levels are continually seeking to solve issues with greater efficiency and innovation. Whether at a personal, team or organizational level, adaptability is a key consideration which can help government employees to work more effectively when faced with new information, a changing situation, or a challenging environment.

This eighth event in the series offers insights into the concept of adaptability and how to apply its principles in a work context.
