Learn how you can assess the digital-readiness of your team

The term ‘digital transformation’ implies a journey, an evolution on a spectrum of less digital to more digital. But how do you assess how digital your team or department already is, and how do you prioritize the skills and capacities that will move you furthest along that spectrum?

Building on the work of Public Digital and the Harvard Kennedy School, Code for Canada is developing a new Digital Capacity Assessment for government teams. Currently in alpha, the tool helps public servants identify the digital competencies that are most important in their unique contexts.

This workshop was first presented at FWD50. Here, we'll introduce the Digital Capacity Assessment and help attendees apply it to their own departments and projects. Participants will get an early glimpse of the tool, and actually contribute to its testing and development. They’ll leave with a renewed sense of how to think critically about digital transformation in their roles.

Who should attend?

  • Anyone working on digital transformation or change management projects
  • Digital leaders interested in how to better evaluate digital capacity
  • Staff curious about how digital methods can be used in their work.


  • Dorothy Eng, Executive Director, Code for Canada
  • Merlin Chatwin, Executive Director, Open North
