A paper for IPAA looking at ways the public sector should be responding to the regulatory challenges of the new economy.
“How policy makers and regulators respond to the new economy depends on the frame within which they approach their task and the nature of the task they think they are being asked to undertake. Drawing on the work of John Hagel and Mark Moore especially, this paper argues that the task should be defined primarily as “scalable learning” to move the insights, assets and capabilities developed in and across the new economy as quickly and effectively as possible from the edge to the main stream. How well that transition occurs will have a big impact on how successfully Australia’s “public production” systems adapt to, and take advantage of, the experiments and innovation which fuel much of the new economy’s work and impact.”
