C2: Yes, we can! – change management at the public authorities
Changing the infrastructure and circumstances in towns and cities and on the roads requires a culture change at the public authorities. Cycling planning is a textbook example of doing things differently than has been the standard in the past: processes and approaches need to be rethought and facilitated. Moving away from a culture of “no, because” towards a “yes, if” culture. The COVID-19 pandemic has opened up new scope for action at public authorities and has launched pop-up infrastructure and new processes . Creativity and innovations have to be integrated into administrative operations and are not contrary to administrative procedures. This requires new governance structures to progress organizational transformation within the authorities by means of a new leadership culture. New approaches and methods, such as design thinking or changed processes, can support this. This session will focus on the internal processes required to get a culture change at the public authorities underway.
