Gov 2.0 Radio – Publivate Geordie Adams
This week we had Geordie Adams of Publivate on Gov 2.0 Radio
They run an innovative/crowdsourcing technology and service company for public service.
Some notes from his conversation.
The methodology is key
-what it is
-what it is not
-structure around it/responsibilities
-strategic elements around it
-how you communicate and market it
-getting senior leadership on-board
-focusing on how you reach out and the wifm (what’s in it for me)
-how you phrase questions – for example, a great challenge question was “how might our department remain relevant in the future” got great response
-3rd pillar – it is so key to have follow through and have senior leaders have to do something with research
-Don’t boil the ocean – specify a narrow scope
-Commit to 12-14 month engagement to learn VS an engagement.
-Build and learn from engagements over time
-Focus on developing the community of interest that is created around ideas
