Help us co-design a Living Lab to show #thewayahead for London's civil society

Social Reporter

Here’s how you can contribute ideas, in a modest way, on the role of technology and network thinking in enabling citizens to play a part – something so far missing from future plans. Digital technology, and the networks it enables, are important to the civil society organisations themselves. This is something we have to do for ourselves and our suggestion is to focus on building networks, alliances and active critical spaces.

Update on Ageing Better Innovation – look to apps and connectors

Social Reporter

We hope to pilot some mapping of who knows who, using Drew Mackie’s expertise, in order to see how social network analysis could help. Within that model, it doesn’t really matter too much whether or not Big Lottery Fund provides an online community platform.

More collaboration

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

And it prompts me to wonder if James Rs model is actually more of a maturity profile around the management of collaboration tools than about tool adoption per se. My experience, though, is that we need to "capture the high ground" in these models, explicitly including the longer-term vision. Without this, these models are too quickly ignored when a "sexier" approach comes along.

Collaboration tools

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

As ever, James is practical & clear in his thinking and suggests a 5 phase model (0-4) for organisations thinking about collaboration. Something like mapping perhaps? Using the map to produce repeatable toolsets. Phase 3: Rich networks Organisation-wide collaboration will only be achieved with the silos are broken down between different spaces. These rich networks will almost certainly be a federated model.
