Does E20 implies a different way to do ICT policies?
The ultimate goal of our study on Enterprise 2.0 is to give to the European Commission relevant policy recommendations.
One of my hypothesis is that Enterprise 2.0 shows that current policies for ICT in business are unfit for the 2.0 world. Indeed, even before web 2.0, government traditionally struggle to:
– promote new ICT business
– promote take-up of ICT in business
Enterprise 2.0, just like web 2.0, is not just another item on the agenda of ICT policies. It implies a different way to do ICT policy: more emergent, less self-referential, more people-centred. In general, I think that Dion Hinchliffe recommendations to CEOs apply very well to government as well:
– do nothing
– get out of the way
– keep the energy levels up
I’m curious to see whether this is true: just like conferences evolved into unConferences, we should think for unPolicies!
