In today’s government, it isn’t enough to just communicate with citizens.

Today you must listen, respond, take comments, put them to use and show that you are doing so. The Framework for Action will guide you to successfully create an action plan that results in effective, meaningful, and valuable citizen engagement.

This workshop was given at the Social Media for Government Communications Conference in Washington, DC on February 13, 2012. It was facilitated by myself, Joseph Porcelli, Director of GovDelivery Engagement Services and Lauren Modeen our Digital Strategist.

Create a likely-to-succeed action plan that builds trust and support 5. Manage expectations: “People rather choose than loose” 6. Have citizens take action that is meaningful to them and valuable to you and produce a measurable result (in most cases) “We are human beings having a human experience through technology”5
    • 6. Background 1:25 – 1:35 pm Developed by teams of people in response to frustrating and unproductive dialogue where problems did not get resolved. Lots of anger, finger pointing, fear, AND no action. WHY? Poorly thought out meetings/experiences/online dialogues by organizations NOT taking the time to: − understand what is happening and what is important for whom? (i.e. what are the values driving their views?) − distinguishing problems from symptoms − designing feedback/shepherding processes • Where I’ve used this: − Our Border − SnowCrew − Everyday6
