    • Tends to be “one-off”
    • Big Bang approach
    • No examples of regular innovation
    • Doesn’t go across processes
    • Seen as specialist domain, not a core value
    • Seen to be more around generating ideas not focused on generating results
      • UK National Audit Office, Review of Innovation in Government Agencies, July 2006
  • 9. So what is the problem
    • The real problem is that few governments take a systemic view of the innovation process – Bill Eggers, Deloitte Research
    • The alibis
      • We can’t because we are government
      • The front page of the Herald Sun
      • We don’t have the budget
      • We can’t take risks
      • We have a rigorous process we must follow

  • 14. Where else can you find what is new?
  • 15. Certainty vs Exploration – the predictability issue
  • 16. Business Case – The standard for investing…or the ally of inertia Or if you don’t know, don’t guess: prototype and test

  • 23. Open is better than closed
  • 24. Open data = new opportunities
  • 25. Open Source and UGC – in Victorian Government
  • 26. Conclusion
    • Government can innovate – but can it do it repeatedly
    • Establish a process and some funding
    • Get diversity of knowledge and thinking around problems and ideas
    • The future is ambiguous – a river not a railway track
    • Prototyping and testing – contains scope, maintains focus, doesn’t cost the earth
    • Open is better than closed
