Towards More Effective Civic Innovation with Anthea Watson Strong

Towards More Effective Civic Innovation with Anthea Watson Strong | Civic Technology | Scoop.it
In a talk entitled “The Calculus of Civic Innovation,”
socialcompany's insight:

Civictech分野で効果的なサービスを創り出すためにはきちんとしたリサーチが必要、という主張。

[1] : when we’re funding civic prototypes we need to be funding ones that are designed well, and we need to feel confident that they’re reflecting the best understanding we have as an ecosystem of what the next step is.
[2]: in order to know which products we should be investing in, we’re going to need better research. To some extent funders need to be investing in this. I don't understand why it’s not a requirement if you get a grant from any of the foundations in this space, that you install analytics and optimizely, and all those sorts of things, and constantly be publishing the lessons you learn. We need a fail forward kind of approach.
