Current Agency or Organisation
The public sector of the future should . . .
Display non-politicised open data, and allow the development of commercial apps using that data. Small clever uses of data. All non-sensitive data should be released to public domain for use freely, as real-time data that can be turned into apps.
Anything else?
Rather than the often common practice of importing massive IT projects with laundry-list needs (everybody pegs a requirement on) delivered by massive consulting firms. That then fail. That then cost a billion.

I come from a commercial background and your frustration is something I have had to handle before. Happy to discuss how you and I might move forward with a project.

Chris - your Innovate comment
I understand where you are coming from. I would like to discuss the issues you raise in a private forum, as I feel we have a lot in common and I may have some suggestions. Not all appropriate for an open forum (but all above board).
I now find I am restricted to 200 words here. I invited you as a friend on Innovate, just so I could send you an email.

Hope you find time to respond positively to this.

Welcome!! so agree with your anything else ..... I am a Change Agent on a major IT project that has a forever growing 'wish list'. My only saving grace is a great project manager who isn't swayed by the masses!
