At the beginning of the year we all think fondly about the marvellous things we want to achieve over the coming months. What are the OPM team's resolutions for open policy making in 2015?
To do more to consciously spot, celebrate and connect individual reformers within the policy profession.
- Paul Maltby, Government Innovation Group Director
To learn social media analysis skills - and maybe even get a twitter!
- Maria Nyberg, Head of the Open Policy Making Team
To involve users even earlier in the policymaking process: scoping problems with them as well as co-designing and getting feed back on solutions.
- Cat Drew, Senior policy adviser, Policy Lab
Personally: to try out more techniques from the '3Ds' (design, data and digital) on policy issues
For the programme: to beat 2014's total of over 1,700 people directly met or talked to inside and outside the civil service! It's by collaborating and building networks that we come to a better understanding of what Open Policy looks like in practice at the moment, how we can scale it up so it becomes common practice, what the barriers are that we need to address and where our ambitions need to be.
- Rachel Pascual, Senior policy adviser
To create an open policy making toolkit which everyone will want to use.
- Krisz Katona, Senior policy adviser
To use social media more.
- Laura Criddle, Policy adviser
To write at least one blog post a month.
- Wotey Tannoh, Policy adviser
To try out prototyping a policy solution.
- Lisa Ollerhead, Policy adviser
