What is Government 2.0 all about? And how can Knowledge Management help staff in government agencies to meet its objectives?
The Federal Government sponsored Government 2.0 Taskforce presented its final report at the end of 2009 - see http://www.finance.gov.au/publications/gov20taskforcereport/index.html
As part of the Taskforce's consultation process, they commissioned the creation of Online Engagement Guidelines and a Web 2.0 Toolkit. This was designed to provide guidance to government agencies using web 2.0 tools and provided a recommendation for a toolkit of web 2.0 technologies that agencies can use based on principles of shared services and re-use.
James Dellow will provide a briefing on:
* The Government 2.0 Taskforce
* An overview of the new Online Engagement Guidelines and Web 2.0 Toolkit
* How you can make use of it
* How your Knowledge Management skills and practices can contribute to enabling Government 2.0
James will then facilitate an open discussion on the topic, using a conversation cafe style format.
