The State Services Authority is currently undertaking a research project on agile government with Demos, the UK think tank. The project is explores the way government shapes, recognises and responds to new opportunities and challenges. The project is considering:
The way administrations can create long-term strategies that shape society while still being responsive to a changing environment?
How do administrations identify changes in the environment and what kinds of structures and processes are necessary to respond?
The purpose of the paper is to generate ideas and provoke debate about how developing agility might equip government and the public sector to respond to new challenges in a changing world.
