Service One – Integrated Service Delivery and the Need for a Paradigm Shift

Stephen Dixon
Service New Brunswick

Service vs Enforcement/Monopoly
-Private sector – service quality and standards
-Government regulations enforcement interactions with public
-Putting a square peg in a round hole – public vs private is different

It’s not about the technology – but we keep talking about the technology
-About people, business processes
-Lost in forest vs trees

Service New Brunswick
-Incorporated ini 1992
-Offering teleservices in 1997
-Online services in 1999
-~300 services
-Continues to expand via multiple channels

Is it perfectly integrated?
-Start patching a bunch of technologies together
-Over the counter – offers 300 services
-Teleservices – much less
-Online – much much less

Often don’t offer services to citizens because don’t want to offer things if
can’t do it right or perfect
-Have to just try it

Keep it simple…but do simple

System Reuse – Common Level of Service

-People pull together the services they want to interact online with
-Symantic understanding of people and their various roles with government

-Why build when we can provide the sandbox?
-Provide access to service?

Service New Brunswick
-Research and Innovation – smallest branch (1 person) and largest branch
(access to hundreds of researchers)
-Permission to look outside the day-to-day
-Engage with research institutions
-Align with professors on strategic
-Research agenda, foster a culture of innovation, environmental scanning
-Hardest part is creating a culture of innovation
-Bring in people on innovation teams – province, municipal, private sector

Innovation – implementation of a new idea
-Could be disruptive but it doesn’t have to be
-Innovation is not easy
-Innovation learning
-Prove infrastructure and tools (they use Sharepoint for KM)

SNB Municipal Partnerships
-Payment taking
-Program registration
-Report a problem
-Property assessment
-Online course registration
-Online sales of hard good
-BizPaL – came together 3 levels of government to deliver a service

Need for a paradigm shift
-Move from government to open government
-Open attitude, open process, open data

Most everything is really SIMPLE just NOT DOING IT

Willing partners
-Willing to share
-Willing to collaborate
-Willing to align
-Where is the will?

Take calculated risks.

But take risks!

Clients don’t care who does

Expectations continueto increase – an integrated, holistic approach must be
Include the clients in the design
