  8. 8. Vision… and Leadership RADICAL changes Known Unknown Solution Solution COACH SMALL changes n A Coach: – He knows the rules of the game – People accept him as an expert – Leadership is easy 8
  9. 9. Vision… and Leadership RADICAL changes Known Unknown Solution Solution THERAPIST n A Therapist: SMALL changes – He/she possesses certain expertise – Still it requires a joint search for the solution – As a leader, you delegate on the organization 9
  10. 10. Vision… and Leadership RADICAL changes PROPHET Known Unknown Solution Solution SMALL changes n A Prophet: – “I know what to do and I am convinced” – “Those who question me are heretics” – A leader who does not accept interpretations 10
  11. 11. Vision… and Leadership RADICAL changes STATESMAN Known Unknown Solution Solution SMALL changes n A Statesman: – Many options to accomplish his vision – Most of our understanding is imperfect – Different people see the world differently – Ambiguity and the embracing of contradictions 11

Vision… and Leadership n But, ITS Deployment requires: – cooperation among institutions – a new web of relationships with RADICAL changes the private sector STATESMAN n The role of the Statesman is then Known Unknown even more difficult, as he sails Solution Solution into unchartered waters n Still his sense of responsibility will be his main guiding star SMALL changes This is one of the main issues for this Congress 12
  13. 13. Vision… and Leadership n Achieving cooperation among public institutions: – Appeal to common values – Develop a common problem definition – Agree on a common policy action program – Accept ambiguity as essential for coalition building n Socio-technical systems are not clocks n Systemic complexity or managing chaos 13
  14. 14. From Vision to Reality n At this point, we are: – Identifying our transport needs – Examining technological issues – Sure that a holistic approach is needed – Convinced that time, patience and new mindsets are a must – Working hard to develop a robust coalition for the long run 14
  15. 15. From Vision to Reality n Basic questions: – The future will come, but can we be pro-active by going there sooner? – Which is the right scale for policy action? How do we relate the local and the regional, the national and the European scales? – Which is the best approach: < Top-down? (The familiar old approach?) < Bottom-up? (New and unchartered waters?) < Some combination? 15
  16. 16. From Vision to Reality n Still more questions regarding cooperation between the public and the private sectors: – Is the EC funding approach valid for smaller geographical scales? – Have local authorities to ask for national or European involvement? – Or, do National or European Agencies have to foster cooperation at the local level? 16
  17. 17. Next Steps in Bilbao n Strengthen “Bilbao Access 2010” Forum n Support ERTICO´s “ITS City Pioneers” n Cooperative Projects among Public Institutions n ITS Latin (Spain, Southern Europe, L.America) n Public-Private cooperation: – The example of the Congress organization – Seed money for actual deployment exercises? 17
  18. 18. Next Steps in Bilbao n Eventually, we will have to break old monopolies and open up the transport sector for competition n We need to do this on the grounds of equity, economics and efficiency n However, till now “privatization” is far from satisfactory results with no winner examples (old wine in new bottles) 18
  19. 19. Next Steps in Bilbao n Perhaps, we should look to TeleComs and Energy, where new technologies and organizational schemes have brought along profound changes and benefits n Do we have to define a new Mobility Paradigm? n That paradigm will certainly incorporate ITS… but also IST (Information Society Technologies) 19
  20. 20. n We hope to make Bilbao and the Basque Country into one of the leading examples of the new approach to transport and cities n We are opening our doors to new partners, might that be you? Thank you for your attention! 20
