Innovation is one of the defining buzzwords of 2018. Government agencies know they need to innovate, and they want to innovate. But there exists a problematic, pervasive myth that companies can only innovate in a controlled environment of post-it notes and whiteboards, filled with creative folk who speak in design thinking language, spouting words like agile, disrupt and ideate.
Nexus recently attended a seminar on blockchain technology, which is a type of digital distribution ledger or database that contains a record of every transaction at every stage of the supply chain. It is decentralised, with no single owner of the data (such as a bank or government agency).
In last month’s blog, we discussed some of the reasons why it’s so hard to get staff to work across internal boundaries, and how it can often create a stack of silos in the organisation.
Nexus recently worked with a government agency that was shifting a number of its most important services online. The change was significant and the stakes were high, in terms of organisational reputation and perceived value for money, as well as client and community satisfaction.
