I’m excited to announce I’ll be visting Oman next week for the Oman Competitiveness Forum.
I’ve been invited to join a panel to discuss Trialing Public Policy’ as part of a larger discussion on public sector innovation, with the whole conference covering new skills needed for public and civil servants in ‘the 21st civil servant’, public service and citizen engagement and innovation as a whole in this sector. You will be able to follow the event on #OCF14 via twitter.
With alot of projects in this space, I’m hoping to bring a fresh perspective and learnings from our work.
I’m delighted to join a fantastic panel, including our friends at Bethnal Green Ventures.
o Simon Ruda, The Behavioural Insights Team (London)
o Karsten Schmidt, iNudgeYou (Copenhagen)
o Sarah Drummond, Snook (Glasgow)
o Glen Mehn, Bethnal Green Ventures (London)
I’ll be focusing on:
How to create Safe Spaces to test public policy – What it means to set up failure experiments
How to use design thinking to open up public policy and create tangible outputs linked to policy
How to humanise public policy and make it accessible
How we can prototype public services and how design can support this
Looking at mindset and the characteristics, multiple disciplines and skills needed to operate in a progressive, agile process for policy and service development
