Last week's GovLoop poll was "How Big is Your Training Budget?"
I think it is an important question as Gov 2.0 evolves and there becomes more events (such as Gov 2.0 Summit and OGI) and training courses. How do we provide ways to bring people together online and offline to learn from experts and our peers?
The results are:
27.3% $2,500 or more
18.2% $1,500 - $2,500
27.3% Zero. Zilch. Nada.
It seems like there is a wide range of training budgets with some individuals having significant budgets while others are scrapping by if they have any at all. The good thing is there are a range of options to learn from simply getting involved in sites like GovLoop and Twitter and directly talking to thought-leaders all the way to going to flagship events such as ALI Social Media in Government, Gov 2.0 Summit, and OGI.
