Smart Government - Ohio University

Government planners often face decisions whose effects will be felt over generations. None are more challenging than anticipating the evolution and adoption of new technologies. In 1998, the worldwide web was just beginning its phenomenal growth, “social media” was a phrase that few had heard, and the iPhone and Facebook were still years away. Yet some communities were beginning to build the infrastructure that would underlie the use of these and related technologies and enable the smart, connected communities that we experience today. How do local governments know that they are making the correct choices in these far-reaching investments? Using two real world cases, one each from business and government, this workshop will put a new spin on two familiar tools – Technology Roadmapping and the Business Model Canvas – that together form a framework to help plan for what comes next.
