No doubt, government officials and staffers are aware of the ever-present role technology plays in their everyday tasks. The use of technology in government is no longer a new idea, as most government agencies have gone digital in many ways.
However, a wariness of technology exists in government because the goal of technology adoption is often presented as an appeasement to the public’s demand for technology, rather than as a way to help government staffers be better at their jobs and improve their workloads. In short, as a way to improve government from the inside out.
Government officials ought to see technology as a way to interact with citizens in a more meaningful and through-provoking way – by inviting citizens into an improved experience with government, one enhanced by technology through streamlined processes and internal efficiencies.
To help set a course for how governments can accomplish this, Granicus has released a new whitepaper, 5 Essential Principles for the New Era of Digital Governing. It’s a quick-hitting guide to today’s top technology trends affecting government, offering a roadmap for today’s civic leaders on the path to technology adoption through greater understanding.
We hope you enjoy it!
