Dervis Mansuroglu is a principal officer and a competency manager for a team of developers at the Norwegian Labor and Welfare Administration (NAV). He has a master’s degree in computer science and will share how new digital tools have affected a huge organization that also is in the midst of dealing with the consequences of the Covid pandemic with at times over 300 000 unemployed people seeking their help.

The session will be finalized by a panel discussion led by Cathrine Torp, EVP Communications and user experience at The Research Council of Norway, bringing in some empiric data from a high-competency organization now having a few months of remote work experience.
