Open Government: A Precondition for an Adaptive Public Sector
This webinar is about Open Government and the Adaptive Public sector, and it is hinged on Power Skills on the PMI Triangle. Public sector initiatives can originate from citizens, but if a government is not open there will be no recognition for civic space, and it might be impossible for citizens to have a voice in what the government does. Open government creates the necessary framework for civil society and the public to be able to make input in governance; enabling citizens to hold leaders accountable via open data, while preventing wrongdoings on both sides. This webinar will provide insights into the concept of open government and explain why it is a precondition for advancing an adaptive public sector. Lessons will be drawn from Estonia’s openness-by-design, and some testimonies shared during the recently held Open Government Partnership Summit.
In the end, participants should walk away with a shared understanding of the following points:
- It is better to be open-by-design
- It is not too late to start transforming processes that lead to open Government
- One way the Public sector can use technology for good is by being open
- In the context of good governance – public leadership should be open for accountability
