  12. 12. Why Did We Miss The Mark? Common Views* Master Plan 2 •IT is not a national agenda •No single Plan •Political instability management agency •Corruption •Ineffective Plan •Poor English monitoring & measurement
  13. 13. • Plans are adequately done and academically sound• Implementations are top down• Adherence to traditional practices• Limited & locked-in experts and advisors• Government system cannot be changed mentality• Outcomes are secondary to play safe• Knowing problems is different from understanding problems
  14. 14. Our Views views• Out of sync with the Digital world • Third generation brain • Failure to ride the new wave of “How” • Complacency •Plan clarity • Not enough attention given to local conditions • Diverse interpretation of Plan targets

Now, they are used to serve our unsaturated wants• Technical competence and knowledge are necessary but not sufficient for today’s global competiveness. Creativity and innovation are the tickets for winning

Government ChangeGovernment not only biggest IT users but better IT manager All government transactions are online 2012 WITSA Global ICT Public Sector Excellence Award Urging governments to engage in local software development US Federal Gov appointed CIO to match the IT dynamic of private sector MSC 10 Bill of Guarantee

  22. 22. Focusing Local Needs and Conditions• To plan can be global but to succeed must be local• The true value of IT to Thailand is when it is affordable not when imported• Global indices can be deceptive. The real scorecard is the improvement over our own indices• Need of local comprehensive Industry data & IT researches for sustaining development• Creative uses of available technologies not only bridges the digital divide but prepares people to faster catch up with new technologies
  23. 23. Local Needs • MNC R&D facilities • International HQ • Tech transfer • IT specific applied researches • HR creativity training • Indigenous innovation
  24. 24. Boosting Market Demand• Domestic demand strengthens IT industry, the oil for socio-economic engine• Big IT domestic demands are from Government, SME, Consumer sectors• Total government digital transformation will generate big market demand• Running both conventional paper and digital documents systems degrades government productivity, national competitiveness, & subsequently private sector performance

  28. 28. Critical Actions• Set “Reverse Implementation” criteria and process• Have TOT, CAT, SIPA, EGA, ETDA defined projects, measurements, and executed.• Reset MICT & agencies KPI to effect Plan targets and show MICT as the Digital transformative agent.• Step up creativity and innovation training• Support bottom-up ideas and contrarians• Keep public informed on progress and achievement
  29. 29. Air of Optimism• Taking different courses assures different outcomes• Breaking the mold does not have to break the rules• Playing safe not only costs high but open wider doors for rivals• Only need simple decision and determination
