About Alex Buchanan

📖 Summary

THE IDEAL It should be easy for citizens and businesses to work out the benefits that are available to them, access government services, and to understand the policies and regulations with which they need to comply. A digital government understands its constituents. It knows their situation, and its services seek them out automatically as their situations change, providing the support and information that they need, when they need it, through a channel that’s convenient to them. This is more than great websites and online forms. Digital transformation means completely re-thinking our operating models, to adopt slim business practices based on smart technology and connected data, that puts our customers at the heart of what we do… delivering better outcomes for our country and our people. THE PERSON As a software engineering by trade, with management qualifications, a background delivering business outcomes in both private industry and the public service, and as an entrepreneur with my own start-up company, I understand the bigger role that digital technology can play in a successful organisation. I have engaged stakeholders ranging from junior front line staff through to senior executive, developed relationships with partner companies and agencies, and have led the implementation of systems from concept, through procurement, to embedded use and operation. I have delivered projects for state and federal agencies including education, employment, climate change and energy efficiency, health, police, defence, tax, elections, and central agency administration.Director for Digital Government @ Digital Account Director, with a focus on the digital transformation of government From July 2015 to Present (6 months) Company Director @ Director of a start-up company that rents the latest block buster movie titles from DVD rental kiosks (vending machines). From October 2010 to Present (5 years 3 months) Canberra, AustraliaDeputy CIO @ An organisation must move forward, even while cutting costs.

I believed that if I was truly engaging my Executive – inspiring and planning alongside them - then I was in the best position to guide their investment, deliver quality technology, and keep the business moving forward.

Together our team adapted the UK model of capability to the Australian environment, developed guidance material, processes and tools for subsequent review teams, successfully reviewed the leadership, strategy, and delivery capabilities of the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, and completed a programme evaluation in support of a cabinet submission.
