Oct. 2013 UPDATE: You may also be interested in this post which delves a little deeper into the idea of public service culture and Gov 2.0.
I am preparing to facilitate a workshop on overcoming cultural roadblocks to Web 2.0 at the Social Media in Government conference in Ottawa on Sept 27-03. As part of the background for the discussion, I am trying to synthesize three things.
- A working definition of culture
- A description of the existing and emergent culture in Public Service (Federal, Provincial and Municipal)
- A description of a future culture that we can aspire to create within our sphere’s of influence.
We have had some twitter exchanges about #2 and to provide a little more detail for those that are interested, here are 4 early stage slides for your perusal and comment.
I look forward to exploring this area with you.
Also if you mention my name or code SPK you can save $400 on the conference.
