Anyone who has worked in government settings knows how often the word “digital” gets misused as a unique concept, separate to the workings of the state, even in 2019. This digital economy kit from the Pathways For Prosperity Commission looks at the potential growth technology can bring to the whole of their economy, and provides a framework for best practice.
The kit is divided into three simple areas: assessment, dialogue, and strategy, and the document is peppered with handy video explanations throughout.
It also sets out the four pillars which must be considered in any digital strategy - infrastructure, people, financing, and policy and regulation, with significant emphasis on inclusive society.
As Toby Phillips, Head of Research and Policy at the commission, states:
All in all, this kit should provide a useful reference for anyone at the start of the journey in terms of digital strategy and policy, which is fundamental on the road to Good ID.
