Before this Decade is OUT…
Author Marie Johnson
The article “Before this Decade is OUT…” calls for national leadership and an organising effort of the dimensions of the moon shot, to face the public sector challenge and the opportunities in this digital era.
If human endeavour can put a man on the moon within a decade of the vision being articulated – more than 50 years ago – why then, in this Internet age and after more than a decade, are we still talking about putting government forms and services online? From a public sector perspective, we need to think differently about complex problems. I highlight some interesting insights from the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital in London and the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
