Three Inside Stories of Innovation in Government

IdeaScale

Governments are increasingly turning to crowdsourcing and open innovation to encourage citizens across the spectrum to weigh in with ideas, opinions, and perspectives. The post Three Inside Stories of Innovation in Government appeared first on IdeaScale.

Why Government is Essential for Private Sector Innovation

Destination Innovation

Steve Jobs, Sir Jonathan Ive and the design team at Apple deserve the tremendous credit they get for this seismic innovation. The remarkable thing which Mazzucato points out is that all these technologies were initially funded partly or wholly by government (and usually defence) agencies.

Designing for Meaningful Social Interactions

Occupying Terra Incognita: How Governments can shape the Future

The Future Shapers

At a time when the future feels so troubled for so many with the rise of automation, environmental degradation, increasing threats to peace and prosperity and rising inequality, the role of government in shaping the future has never been more important. We can choose to be passive in the face of technological change, governing without acknowledging or adapting to the new world in which citizens live. But how can governments actively shape the future?

Solving the Problems of Government CIO Citizen Engagement

However, in the world of governance, the move towards digital engagement for the purpose of civic innovation has been much more gradual. With a growing focus on citizen participation, even government agencies are jumping on the communication bandwagon.

A new cycle of innovation design

The Future Shapers

We really do have this compelling need to have a new cycle of innovation design. A more integrated solution that takes our understanding of innovation and how to manage it, into the realms of ecosystems and platforms in its design and thinking. Just remember a new innovation design needs to be radical, totally connected and resource rich. The post A new cycle of innovation design appeared first on The Future Shapers.

Design Thinking for the Greater Good: Innovation in the Social Sector

Innovation in Practice

Design Thinking for the Greater Good goes in depth on both the how of using new tools and the why. As a way to reframe problems, ideate solutions, and iterate toward better answers, design thinking is already well established in the commercial world.

Swimming along a road in a flood of digital transformation

Paul Hobcraft

The blurring of our lives, of the breaking down of the different old industry demarcations, the blending of government, corporate and social engagements is giving increasing voice to each of us as individuals, all happening due to this exponential set of connections.

Google, Stanford, and The Government Fight Swine Flu

Boxes and Arrows

Bolt | Peters recently collaborated with Stanford University’s Bill Behrman on designing the Google Sites template for local governments to use as a backup to deliver information on the H1N1 outbreak, and also disasters and emergencies in general.

Moving to a Digital World totally across your Business is highly challenging

Paul Hobcraft

This stretches our abilities significantly as we may unclear of the finished design for quite some time. Customers will want to participate, influence and aid your design and final product. Transformation is very hard at the best of times for all of us to undertake.

Digital technology is changing the innovation ‘game’

Paul Hobcraft

We need to change our thinking and design in the digital insight part more specifically within and along the innovation process. It is outcome learning as the driver for metrics It is how we design this in a more comprehensive manner will be a real challenge in 2017.

What UX Designers Need to Know about Conversion Rate Optimization

Boxes and Arrows

The real problem many organizations face regarding conversion, is that content is often still considered “the stuff that goes into the design.” Putting content at center stage means changing some of the fundamental ways we think about content in the design process and how it helps conversion.

Innovation cannot expand without the 4th Industrial Revolution

Paul Hobcraft

Equally the nature of much of production has been designed “on the fly” and the equally tough job of connecting the whole process up in a new integrated, fully connected system meets huge resistance.

The backdrop of digital transformation and its consequences

Paul Hobcraft

The report was designed to help you to trigger your thinking, and make you aware of multiple challenges and opportunities you may encounter on this journey. Digital transformation is now omnipresent and has the potential to reshape the way all organizations operate.

The chance to think differently about Ecosystems for Innovation

Paul Hobcraft

Ecosystem co-operations can allow you to align with others, totally outside your existing relationships, so you can enter new markets, explore new concepts and design, that would have been impossible as an individual organization.

A Model for Dual Corporate Innovation Management

Tim Kastelle

How much time does your CEO/executive management spend strengthening and protecting the current business model, versus designing the next one? Premise 3 : Exploitation- and exploration-oriented initiatives are separated in terms of organizational anchoring, governance and funding.

The Case for Dual Innovation

Innovation Excellence

The first time I was advocating the idea of a dual innovation approach, here also referred to as organizational ambidexterity, is now more than 5 years ago.

Designing the Democratic

Boxes and Arrows

The role of the information architect (IA), interaction designer, or user experience (UX) designer is to help create architecture and interactions which will impact the user in constructive, meaningful ways. Sometimes the design choices are strategic and affect a broad interaction environment; other times they may be tactical and detailed, affecting few. But sometimes the design choices we make are not good enough for the users we’re trying to reach.

Strategic goals and design principles for establishing innovation centres

Innovation 360 Group

However, ignoring innovation and the capability it can give an organization is not a viable option in today’s marketplace, so the question is how can we better design such capabilities to drive forward innovation? Setting strategic goals and how to make the correct design choices. Outlining the strategic goals is the first step to follow when considering the possible design choices. Governance and reporting structures.

Identifying and Implementing Innovation Measures

Integrative Innovation

Rather, the crux of effective innovation measurement is to understand the problem that measurement should solve for the organization and, based on that insight, to design and implement a useful and usable innovation measurement framework appropriate to the organization’s needs.

Nesta’s Landscape of Innovation Approaches

Paul Hobcraft

One of their team, Bas Leurs , who is their head of learning experience design has been working on “ A Landscape of Innovation Approaches “ I read version one in February 2018 and did not pick up on version 2, published as a blog in December 2018. It clearly has that bias to government and the UK civil service but all innovators, irrespective in the private or public sectors will extract good value out of this I know. You sometimes need to kick yourself.

So Where Is Innovation Heading?

Paul Hobcraft

I have written a fair amount about the new innovation era, offering a view on its future design. One that is jumping to a fresh cycle of innovative design. I liked the suggested digital design principles that BCG outlined in their report.

Legacy is all around us. Innovation and insights suffer greatly

Paul Hobcraft

When you think we are on a roll, we are making that transformation in technology, systems, new organizational designs, you are suddenly stopped in your tracks. They were designed on outdated technologies, designed in a world where data was stored not mined 24 x 7.
