Local by Social: Networked Innovation

John Hayes from IDeA takes to the platform.

  • IDeA is 11 years old, just like Google
  • 353 authorities, providing 700 services each (in a Unitary authority), 2.1 million people working in local government
  • All these people, services and authorities have things in common – hence the communities of practice
  • Sustainable self-improvement, efficiency and vfm, connecting people to people
  • The CoPs – 60k members, 75k monthly visits, 22k monthly contributions, 1.3k communities
  • New experiences of networking in personal lives – ie consumer social media and social networking – need to replicate within work context
  • Supporting new ways of working through Local by Social book and the councillors guide to digital engagement
  • Recognising the change in behavior and relationships between people, practitioners and communities
  • The cuts! The cuts!
  • Knowledge hub – new CoPs, more open, more integrated. Mashups and benchmarking also feature and use of linked data
  • Less of looking to the centre for ideas, more sharing good practice amongst practitioners
  • Built with the sector, for the sector
