What elements are needed to foster an environment of innovation within the public sector?

Taking into consideration the diverse characteristics of population that makes innovation in public sector compulsory, 4 areas of discussion have been chosen, namely: Innovation on Human Talent Management; Innovation for a collaborative government; Innovation for an Open Government; and Innovation on Municipal Public Management.

Presentation 1

Innovation on Human Talent Management for quality of public services
How and what to innovate in human resources management for the effective achievement of public administration´┐Żs objectives and the delivery of better services to citizenry?

Without a high-quality Civil Service, there are no reforms possible. In that regard, some countries of the Americas developed several reform processes which include top management, public processes and employment, salary reform, among others.

It is necessary to make more efforts in guaranteeing that those reforms might overcome bureaucracy and generate flexible administrative structures, as well as oriented to serve citizens´┐Ż necessities, that is to say, provisions with quality.

Rethink some elements such as stability of public career, guaranteeing the capacities of public officers to exercise their public functions; as well as the political Agenda of our democracies.

To that end, experiences like public tender process in Paraguay or collective negotiations´┐Ż processes in Argentina, that already include demands or officers´┐Ż commitments towards quality are important advances that worth being disseminated.

Presentation 2
Social Innovation for a collaborative government
How and what to innovate within the public sector for the achievement of a higher participation of other sectors to government Management and the creation of public value?

Social, economic and political changes lead to rethink the way of how to govern. In that regard, in order to create public value, it is necessary to elaborate public policies which include civil society and the private sector for a joint and coordinated work with public institutions.

Experiences like the Citizen Attention System of Peru, that allow the realization and submission of 24 proceedings for companies and 80 for citizens in the same location; the inclusion of different sectors and ethnic groups for the formulation of the National Development Plan of Guatemala; the alliance with private sector to fulfill with the requirements of the macro-economic adjustment Plan in Jamaica; each of them constitute different examples of how collaborative government can be turn into a reality in the countries of the Americas.

Nonetheless, it is not possible to pass by other problems, such as the control of the public interest by small groups; tensions between citizens and public administration; capacity and representation of social sectors, in order to be actively involved in joint initiatives; among others.

Presentation 3
Open Government at the service of´┐Ż citizenry
How and what to innovate to foster a more open, transparent and closer to the citizens Public Management?

To innovate in Open Government implies

The development of economic activities, through the use of open data with the participation of nongovernmental actors.

The development of public policies and the participation of citizenry in their analysis, drafting and application

Building trust towards citizens, through the use of Open Government Tools.

Rethinking the role of public officers for the exercise of Open Government, by transforming them in public services´┐Ż makers, distributors and promoters through their values and capacities.

In that regard, experiences like the ones developed in Uruguay, Trinidad & Tobago, Brazil and Mexico show the different fields and initiatives in which our region is working. These experiences may also show us important challenges to keep working on, as the open data Portal, Archives´┐Ż Management, the design of multi-channel access´┐Ż tools to public services, among others.  

Presentation 4
How and what to innovate in local governments´┐Ż Public Management?

Public Management is highly important in our democracies. If local governments are strong, the central State is strong

Experiences like the one implemented in Durango show us the value of leadership to achieve better services guaranteeing continuity of management; in Patzun, on the close relation with their citizens; in Chincha and in Chihuahua.
