The Collaboration Project: Building Open, Participatory and Collaborative Government The Collaboration Project: Building Open, Participatory and Collaborative Government Presentation Transcript

  • Building an Open, Participatory and Collaborative Government Presentation to Government 2.0 Boot Camp Knoxville, TN Tuesday, April 14, 2009 The Collaboration Project
  • What is “Web 2.0”?
    • Well, what was Web 1.0?
      • Not interactive
      • Value is created by producers
      • “Me-to-you”
    • Web 2.0 is the “interactive web”
      • Interactive tools and media
      • Value is created by consumers/users
      • “Us-with-each-other”
  • How To “Do” Web 2.0
    • Web 2.0 is primarily about building community .
    Platform Technologies provide basic functionality Applications Wikis, blogs, apps create a user environment Community People use these tools to create and share content
  • What Does it Mean?
    • Today, it is clear that good government means civic engagement :
      • It’s The Right Thing To Do : Citizens want to be engaged in their own governance
      • It’s Good Policy : Some of the best ideas come from outside the beltway
      • We Don’t Have A Choice : The challenges facing us cut across agencies and levels of government
  • By the People?
    • To many, government looks like this:
    • Government makes a decision
    • Government reveals it to citizens
    • (Repeat.)
  • The Challenge for Government
    • “ We cannot meet 21 st century challenges with a 20 th century bureaucracy.” – President Obama
      • Stovepipes and hierarchy
      • Oversight, mandates, and budget constraints
      • Legal and policy issues
      • Organizational culture and traditions
    These are technology management challenges .
  • The Old Way is Changing
    • Technology is enabling transparency, collaboration, & participation
    • Stakeholders can see inside their government…
    • … and influence it.
  • What This Means For Government
    • People have an unprecedented ability to get involved with government...
  • What This Means For Government
    • …or, go around it .
  • The Collaboration Project
  • A New Kind of Management
    • Technology is allowing us to pull them in.
    • The old way forces government to push citizens and stakeholders out of the process .
    • Leader-with-Front Line
      • TSA IdeaFactory
    • Leader-with-Stakeholders
      • Virtual Alabama
    • Leader-with-Citizens
      • Downing Street E-Petitions
    • Peer-to-Peer
      • ODNI Intellipedia
    Leader Front Line Stakeholders Citizens Peer-to-Peer
  • TSA IdeaFactory
  • Virtual Alabama
  • Downing Street E-Petitions
  • Intellipedia [SCREENSHOT REDACTED] (WE’D SHOW YOU, BUT WE’D HAVE TO KILL YOU.)
  • A National Dialogue
    • OMB and CIO Council sponsored a week-long, web-based dialogue on health IT & privacy
    • Users submit ideas, discuss & tag them, and vote the best to the top
    • Show an example of how to “do” public engagement
    • Constructive engagement instead of “winning” conflict?
    • Important national issue with high personal relevance
  • Collaborative Brainstorming Citizens engage the question and submit their ideas The Crowd refines ideas, votes the best ones to the top, and invites others in to help “grow” the discussion community Catalysts use their expertise to guide, focus, and track the discussion Seven-Day Time Window Discussion Voting Social Networks Text, Links, Video, Pictures, Documents, etc. Actionable, Citizen-Centered Guidance
  • The National Dialogue
  • Rich, Constructive Discussion
  • Building the Community
    • Outreach was guided by two main principles :
    • Find a community that is engaged with and passionate about the issue
      • “ Stakeholder” communities
      • Direct contact to nearly 800 groups/individuals
    • Give them tools to keep growing the community organically – go viral!
      • Low-tech (“viral” ≠ hi-tech!) : Distribute sample e-mails and newsletter announcements
      • Hi-tech: Social networks: Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Digg, GovLoop, OpinionTracker
  • What We Learned
    • Civic Engagement
      • Civic engagement = good government
      • Collaborative approaches can foster a more constructive conversation
      • Civic engagement exercises are not “one and done” events
    • Health IT & Privacy
      • Citizens must link HIT with better personal health outcomes
      • Principles informed by public engagement can be a starting point for crafting policy
      • Further exploration of key themes is necessary
  • Engaging Social Networks

    • Stakeholders engaged
    Propose policy changes to reflect citizens’ input Assemble the community again for a more focused discussion Gain buy-in for attention and action on the issue Identify important gaps in public knowledge Host a Dialogue
  • Build Problem-Solving Communities Problem What problem is driving my need for innovation? Community Who is the community I can engage on this? Tools Which approach will create the most value?
  • Three Big Recommendations Infrastructure Build an open IT infrastructure Data Treat data as a national asset Culture Create a culture of collaboration
  • 1. Build The Infrastructure
    • Government’s basic communications infrastructure is outdated .
      • Today, computing power isn’t a physical asset – it’s a utility
      • Cloud computing and SaaS mean lower costs and greater environmental sustainability
      • More managerial agility and flexibility, especially for bringing the CIO shop into the mission
      • Using these tools is the only way to stay relevant to the citizen
  • 2. Treat Data Like a National Asset
    • We need to incentivize sharing data instead of controlling it.
      • Use lightweight, interoperable data formats that anyone in government or the public can understand and use
      • Data is no longer “owned” – it has to flow seamlessly without our outmoded concept of stewardship
      • Use collaborative tools to manage knowledge across constant leadership transitions
  • 3. Build a Culture of Collaboration
    • Ultimately, this isn’t a technology issue; this is a leadership issue.
      • Find and celebrate success stories and best practices to create a “safe-fail” environment
      • Give CIOs a seat at the program table – and make sure they use it
      • Resolve the legal and policy ambiguities that empower our “inner lawyer”
  • When You Leave This Room Believe This isn’t going to happen – it has happened Learn Engage with new approaches and platforms Act Find a program partner and pick a problem to solve
