    • Recent from Suzanne Legault, Interim Information Commissioner of Canada : “In my view, Canada must move quickly to embrace open government . It is critical that the government advance the convergence of freedom of information and open government as being in the best interests of the country. ”
      • There must be commitment at the top to lead a cultural change conducive to open government.
      • There should be broad public consultations .
      • Information should be made accessible in open standard formats and rendered re-usable.
      • Privacy, security, Crown copyright and official language issues need to be addressed and resolved.
      • Open government principles should be anchored in statutory and policy instruments.

      • New Web 2.0 tools facilitate developing or supplementing a platform to accomplish this
    • Citizen Engagement has always been a responsibility of government but is a primary focus of Gov 2.0
      • Social media and social sites greatly enhance the options for engagement

    • MOGF Components , Version 1.0 - a Work In Progress,
    • Collaboration and Participation imperatives
    • Open Data – a Key to Gov 2.0
    • Organizational - the Culture of Gov 2.0
    • Policies and Standards
    • Technologies
    MISA Ontario 2010 Annual Conference Municipal Open Government Framework - a Work in Progress
  • 46. MISA Ontario 2010 Annual Conference Municipal Open Government Framework - a Work in Progress MOG Framework - Collaboration Municipal Open Government
  • 47. Gov 2.0 Framework Components - Collaboration
    • Collaboration is required in everything that is Gov 2.0 ….. actually make that everything!
    • Default = Collaboration
    • Key thoughts from prior collaboration events:
      • “ All of us is smarter than one of us”
      • “ There are more knowledgeable people outside your organization than inside”
    MISA Ontario 2010 Annual Conference Municipal Open Government Framework - a Work in Progress
  • 48. Gov 2.0 Framework Components - Collaboration
    • Collaboration is a continuum - from Himmelman’s hierarchy of “mutually beneficial” relationships:
    • “ Networking - simply involves exchange of information for mutual benefits.
    • Coordinating - involves information exchange, altering activities for mutual benefits and achieving a common purpose
    • Cooperating   - builds on coordination and requires participating entities to share resources, implying a higher level of organizational commitment which sometimes
    • Collaborating - is the highest hierarchy of relationship, requiring the greatest level of trust, time and share of organizational resources and jurisdiction”
    MISA Ontario 2010 Annual Conference Municipal Open Government Framework - a Work in Progress
  • 49. Gov 2.0 Framework Components - Collaboration
    • Another view of the collaboration continuum
    • Variables can be viewed as
      • Subject themes (e.g. Special Interest Groups or Project Teams)
      • Scope of interest (e.g. local to global)
      • Geographic extents of activities (e.g. neighbourhood, city, region, etc).
    MISA Ontario 2010 Annual Conference Municipal Open Government Framework - a Work in Progress
  • 50. Gov 2.0 Framework Components - Collaboration
    • From a client perspective, the Institute for Citizen-Centred Service ( http://www.iccs-isac.org/en/cf / ) sums it up nicely – “ Public sector service organizations must keep pace with the public’s rising expectations for high quality and cost-effective services .”
    • Reality check – rising expectations and limited resources dictate the need for collaborations and partnering …. assess how to improve internal collaboration
    MISA Ontario 2010 Annual Conference Municipal Open Government Framework - a Work in Progress
  • 51. Gov 2.0 Framework Components - Collaboration
    • Some of the new tools of the trade … Web 2.0/Social Media are excellent vehicles for collaboration and citizen engagement :
    • facebook. The most widely used social media site used by individuals for “social networking” ( over 400 Million active users ). It’s also been used by many in the public sector as an additional communications channel and opportunity to get feedback as part of their public consultations strategy.
    • twitter. “What’s happening” in 140 characters or less – this has also become a quick way to transmit information (e.g. URL) to whoever’s interested and often turns into a “instant messaging” vehicle via retweets. Many public sector staff and politicians send “tweets” as a real-time update mechanism. Twitter increased its membership from 2008 – 2009 by almost 1400% !
    • The home of videos on almost anything and is very popular as a medium that’s simple to understand and a product that’s easy to create (e.g. cell phone, camcorder). One Billion + views a day . Go to where your clients are !
    MISA Ontario 2010 Annual Conference Municipal Open Government Framework - a Work in Progress
  • 52. Gov 2.0 Framework Components - Collaboration
    • Some of the new tools of the trade … (continued)
    • WIKIS . Wikis facilitate the simple creation and editing of documents that can be collaborated on through a browser; examples include the previously noted Wikipedia, OPSpedia (Province of Ontario internal), GCpedia (Government of Canada internal), MISA Gov 2.0 and a host of public wikis such as GovLoop
    • Second Life . A 3D virtual world where you create your own avatar and explore (transport yourself) many destinations with lots of information and have the ability to interact including participation in virtual meetings. Over a billion hours spent in SL by users.
    MISA Ontario 2010 Annual Conference Municipal Open Government Framework - a Work in Progress
  • 53. Gov 2.0 Framework Components - Collaboration
    • Existing tools of the trade … email is NOT an effective collaboration tool
    • Many organizations have some type of collaboration toolsets such as Microsoft SharePoint and IBM’s Websphere/Domino Notes … most are not fully utilizing these capabilities
    • Collaboration product and service offerings are expanding
      • -Most are web based and often SaaS – ranging from
      • Google apps suite to the recently released Microsoft TownHall service on the Azure (cloud computing) platform to IBM’s Lotus collaboration suite to more focused products such as Publivate’s Crowdsourcing software and service for “innovation through collaboration”.
    MISA Ontario 2010 Annual Conference Municipal Open Government Framework - a Work in Progress
  • 54. Gov 2.0 Framework Components - Collaboration
    • Example collaboration - Mashups. Combining data or products from multiple sources and producing new products and services.
      • 1000’s of mapping mashups and applications developed in part from Open Data initiatives, open APIs, and subsequent application development efforts
    • Collaboration sites
      • Toronto Star’s “YourCity,MyCity”
      • GovLoop, – literally thousands of industry and community sites
    • Collaboration events – both in person and online “webinars”
      • MISA ; Lac Carling; Showcase Ontario; GTEC; Gov 2.0 Summit and Expo
      • GovCamp – next one in Toronto June 17 th , 2010. Local Hackfests …. etc
      • MISA Ontario – roundtable on Wednesday and Unconference in spring 2011
