Over June 13 – 15 seven chief administrators
and NASCA Executive Director Sarah Razor attended The 2017 Public Sector for
the Future Summit: Citizen-Driven by Design. Hosted by Harvard’s Leadership for
a Networked World (LNW), the goal of this time was to generate
powerful new ideas, explore common challenges, and help co-create a new
framework to guide the development of citizen-driven solutions at the
intersection of behavioral economics, data and analytics, and design thinking.
This eleventh annual Summit built
upon on previous work from LNW by not only helping participants implement
near-term innovations, but also guiding their design of long-term strategies
that improve evidence-based government, optimize the enterprise, create
citizen-centric services, and develop the workforce of the future. To do so,
participants were immersed in a hands-on experience using data, analytics,
behavioral economics, and design thinking to address current challenges and to
support citizen-facing and operational innovations.
NASCA members Chris Liu
(Washington), Matt Massman (Minnesota), Bob Oglesby (Tennessee), and Sharon
Minnich (Pennsylvania) served on the Executive Leadership Group for the Summit.
