Government 1.0 Operating in the 3.0 World
The disruptive nature of industries means that the government risks being perceived as an irrelevant entity by the general public. Hence, to be in-front or with the crowd, the government must determine what role it will have in the future. What role would the government have in this ecosystem: leader, disruptor, niche player, orchestrator, or something else? Furthermore, how will the government survive and thrive in its ecosystem?
This adaptation has the potential to affect the general public. What would be their expectation of the government becoming a platform? Especially given the ethos in which government operates, doing more for less.
This type of thinking is not brand new and there are external organisations providing environments for nurturing ideas and processes.
Since the government is pivotal to our functioning society, it is important that they are positioned in-front or with the crowd. Moreover, the increasing pace of technological change will only make it more important to adapt to disruptions.
If the government fails to adapt to disruption than the risk is that they will be seen as irrelevant. The gap between established and emerging technology will only widen over time and thus restricting the government to function in a manner which is effective and efficient. How can government reconcile these emerging technologies with their 'old school' way of thinking?
