3 examples of open policy making from the OPM Conference

One of our (many) daily challenges is trying to explain the abstract concept of open policy making in such a way that people not only understand what we mean but can see how it is relevant to them.

It's obvious really but the best way is the simplest: using practical examples to explain both the concept and some of the tools and techniques that support an open approach.

On Friday we took another step on this path of showing what open policy making is with our first Open Policy Making Conference, which showcased 3 different policy departments' experiences:

  • Anton Draper and Caroline Allnutt talked about how they used collaborative policy tools working on the Community Budgets and the Public Sector Transformation Network
  • Neil Smith from the Red Tape Challenge team once again showed how they used a number of tools, including crowdsourcing and expert engagement
  • Neil Hornby from Defra talked about work on the Common Fisheries Policy

On 24 January 70 Heads of Policy Profession and Digital Leaders met to share practical examples and experiences of Open Policy Making and to learn about some of the tools and techniques that can support an open approach to the policy process.
