Welcome

Welcome to BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT,Isle of Man Section website. Our section was created on the 7th of July 2004 as an international section of the BCS as per other jurisdictions such as Jersey, Guernsey, Switzerland and Hong Kong.

Our Section holds either a professional or social event each month from September to June. There may also be impromptu social events in July and August. Our events are normally open to non-members.

Our forthcoming events are published on our web site and if you happen to be on the Isle of Man at a time coinciding with an open event please join us. If you are a BCS member and regular visitor to the island or would like to register with the Section anyway, then please update your details held by the BCS.

Digital Strategy – 13th April

Toby Bellwood

A more inclusive digital style of government with agile project management techniques such as discovery process maps, data wrangling, mystery shoppers, lowest cost proof of concept, fail fast, Trello roadmaps and crowdsourced policy development builds on the right KPIs, meaningful CPD and undervalued taxpayer goodwill and now the key difference in any government league table…

The April event will include an informal insight into a G7 digital strategy with Toby Bellwood, previously the Australian national lead on international engagement via the global Open Government Partnership and more recently a national lead via the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet to accelerate internal digital transformation and to prioritise, surface and visualise untapped public information to help maximise productivity in the private sector or maximise social impact in the voluntary sector.

His interview at Code for Australia highlights that anyone that knows Excel can contribute to economic development or to meaningful social impact.

Vanessa Williams
