February Open Government Directive Workshop

Page history last edited by Lucas Cioffi 14 years, 5 months ago

***The next public Open Government Directive Workshop will take place in mid-April, focusing on overcoming cultural barriers to open government and measuring success.***

Preliminary results of the Feb 17, 2010 workshop (final results to be published on Tuesday, Feb 23): Team #1Team #2Team #3Team #4 (online team)video of all four presentations.


Invitation for Feb 17th:

We're excited to put this workshop together with our partners: the General Services Administration, the National Academy of Public AdministrationGovLoop, and the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation.  Alex Moll will be our professional facilitator.  OpenGovTV is providing live streaming video from 2pm-4:30pm during the event on this page.


We have a great program planned.  Building off the January 11th workshop at the US Department of Transportation, we are going to transition from divergent thinking to convergent thinking.  This workshop will be focused on creating specific ideas that agencies can drop into their actual open government plans which are due on April 7th.  Some agencies are farther along than others, so this workshop will help spread good ideas from one agency to the next.


This workshop will be different.
This workshop will be highly productive and engaging.  We are using a framework of competitive collaboration to surface the best ideas.  There will be four teams with fifteen participants each.  Teams will work in separate spaces for four hours and then a few representatives will present the team's work to a panel of judges at the end of the workshop.  Judges will be high-ranking thought leaders from the public sector.
