‘Embracing Government 2.0’ white paper on technology for change
‘Embracing Government 2.0: Leading transformative change in the public sector’ is the recently published white paper co-authored by Doug Hadden at FreeBalance and Martha Batorski at Grant Thornton. The paper explores the skills and mindsets governments need to employ to make changes, such as increasing transparency with use of the emerging environment and technologies of open information.
The paper argues that if fully embraced, such a shift would entail a dramatic increase in the transparency, participation and collaboration between governments and citizens through Web 2.0 and social networking technologies – a positive change that promises to benefit all departments, including international development.
