  12. 12. Number of Namie Residents Living in each Prefecture (31 Dec, 2013) 12
  13. 13. Namie town decided • To distribute tablet devices to the residents • Offered to CfJ to create useful applicaQons on the devices
  14. 14. What did we do for Namie? • A CiQzen-­‐Centric Prototyping – face-­‐to-­‐face Interviews. – Involve ciQzens by holding Ideathons and Hackathons. • Help Namie town’s tender process for the applicaQon development process.
  15. 15. 7 Ideathons were held, 420 People parQcipated, 770 Ideas were presented
  16. 16. 3 Hackathons were held 14 Mock-­‐ups were made
  17. 17. What would residents need? • InformaQon about the town and their own houses. – Know what radiaQon level is around their own houses. – Know when they can return. • CommunicaQon – Residents want to talk about their old neighborhood to maintain their regional accent.
  18. 18. Improvement the tender process • Code for Japan and fellows helped to write RFP for avoiding ‘vendor lock’. – The apps should be open source sonware. – Requires agile process development. • Published tenderer’s presentaQons and published scoring in detail. – Transparency makes clear decision.
  19. 19. What will we do for Namie? • Fellows will manage an agile development process with the selected partners. • Main funcQons: – Real-­‐Qme radiaQon maps – Keep up with local news – Community noQces – Sharing photos of Namie – DistribuQng administraQve informaQon
  20. 20. Further Fellowship Issues • Residents have a basic level of IT literacy. – Fellows will organize workshops for the ciQzen. • Running agile process efficiently with local government and partners. – There is not much instances of ‘Government x Agile’ in Japan.
  21. 21. Main difficulQes for extending the fellowship Ordinary local governments don’t have enough budget for the fellowship Japanese labor market is not mobilized to hire high skill fellows
  22. 22. New idea: corporate fellowship • We are about to start three months fellowship with companies – CfJ defines ‘Scope of Work’ with local governments – Companies send their employees as a fellow – CfJ arranges teams formed by the fellows – The team works under the CfJ’s governance – Companies pay management coordinate fee to CfJ
  23. 23. Conclusion • The situaQon of Namie town’s residents are difficult. • To fix such kind of complicated issues, ciQzen centric prototyping process were useful to collect actual needs and ideas. • Making prototypes before the tender process worked for finding the concept was actually works or not.
