Old attitudes still dominate the thinking of many public sector leaders, who fail to grasp the revolutionary potential of technology in public services, according to one of the former leaders of the government’s transformation campaign.

If they don’t get the broader vision it’s going to hold back their organisations undermine public trust. They have to wake up to the revolution now.
