Chief Digital Officer for all Londoners
As London Technology Week kicks off, London First, Centre for London and Bloomberg Associates have set out a paper looking at a new role in City Hall: Chief Digital Officer.
The report, A Chief Digital Officer for all Londoners: Defining and Scoping the Role, was produced in consultation with a range of business and policy leaders, and argues that the role should be focused on three themes:
- providing policy advice and digital expertise,
- championing a digital transformation across London government, and,
- seeking out and sharing best practice.
