Information and communications technology (ICT) plays a major role in a nation’s economic competitiveness and ability to sustain growth. Many countries have implemented digital strategies to build out infrastructure, improve access to ICT, improve digital literacy, attract entrepreneurs and investment, increase productivity, and improve government services.
Promise: National digital transformations offer the promise of more open and responsive government, efficient delivery of public services, innovation, and economic growth. The most developed digital nations have in common a comprehensive, long-term vision and intelligently-designed, competently-administered plans tailored to their individual cultures, politics, social mores, geographies, and economies. They also work collaboratively with the private sector.
Peril: Successfully navigating this transformation remains elusive for many nations, particularly the developing world where approximately 70% of initiatives fail, due to poor planning or execution. Plus, new national rules governing cross-border data flows, e-commerce, and social media, and the sequestration of data behind private membership networks increase the digital divide. This balkanization of the worldwide digital space dampens the greater good that can come from national digital transformations.
Questions: What lessons do the successful nations have to teach about what to do and what not to do in managing national digital transformations? How do we avoid making mistakes and wasting years of progress and billions of dollars? How do we keep the digital world from balkanizing? And if we can’t prevent the balkanization, how do we minimize the negative impact? How can the public sector best collaborate with the private sector to achieve these goals?
