Treading Water or Riding the Wave
Today, governments are preparing for, and in some cases, grappling with a whole new set of complex forces. Are they, will they, be prepared to address the global demographic, economic, social and technological changes already underway?
From "citizen triage and risk management" to "School-in-a-Box" to "crowd sourced road conditions”, governments at the local, state, and national level are experimenting with new ways of delivering services in an affordable and effective way.
How are governments handling the pressures of "made for me public service" or "outcome-based legislation" or the "open talent economy"? Can the "borderless marketplace" momentum counter the rise of a “Brexititis” movement? James Stockmal will explore these issues and more, and provide real-world examples of how governments leverage design thinking and innovation to drive real transformation.
