Case Study: Open Government Advisory Board (Experts panel)
Organization profile – Government office in charge of promoting, expediting and nurturing the establishment of an innovative and competitive culture among its population.
- The first ministry of its kind in Latam in charge of public innovation policies.
- Co-organized the world’s largest Campus Party and Startup Weekend.
- The office reports directly to the state’s governor.
Business situation – As one of its main responsibilities, the office dictates the state’s policy on innovation and technology. This requires not only government officials but also to include the voice of industry and academic experts, in order to ensure optimal long term views.
Decision making challenge – After a few rounds trying to guide the advisory panel’s participants to reach a consensus, an easy to use decision-making platform was required, not only for idea ranking but also for documenting the group’s decision process.
Solution – Ranktab’s Public Platform allowed a centralized repository of ideas and suggestions that the advisory panel could easily visualize and prioritize. As part of an open audit requirement, citizens were able to access and share the results of the advisory group.
Benefits – Instant results keep everyone involved and engaged. In case of disagreement, every decision is documented and audited. Reducing the time of the overall decision-making process while increasing the quality of advisor’s ideas was a major milestone for the organization.
