¿Qué hacen cuatro abogados y un ingeniero en una misma habitación? Parece el inicio de una adivinanza, pero no lo es. Es simplemente lo que está pasando en uno de los equipos de gobierno de Colombia. Están juntando personas de diferentes disciplinas, que nunca se pensaron como colegas, trabajando codo a codo. Eso ya parece transformación para nosotros.
What happens when you put four lawyers and an engineer in the same room? It sounds like the start of a riddle, but it’s not. It is what is happening right now in one of the Colombian government teams. They are bringing together people from different disciplines, who never considered themselves colleagues, and got them working working side by side. The result looks like transformation to us.
It’s been an exceptionally busy couple of months at Public Digital, and our blog has been quiet. This post is mainly just photos from recent trips we’ve been making, so it’s not as much of a blog post as we’d normally like, but an update of sorts is better than no update at all.
A couple of weeks ago, Andrew and I attended the global Open Government Partnership summit in Ottawa. We were invited to host a workshop for a group of government representatives, telling stories about digital teams - how to set them up, and how to make sure they thrive.
Ben and I recently got back from the Transform Africa Summit, this year hosted in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. We were there to learn and to listen.
