Présentation de l'éditeur

Over the last twenty years, our economy and our society, from how we shop and pay our bills to how we communicate, have been completely revolutionized by technology. As Aneesh Chopra shows in Innovative State, once it became clear how much this would change America, a movement arose around the idea that these same technologies could reshape and improve government. But the idea languished, and while the private sector innovated, our government stalled, trapped in a model designed for the America of the 1930s and 1960s.

The election of Barack Obama offered a new opportunity. In 2009, Aneesh Chopra was named the first Chief Technology Officer of the United States federal government. Previously the Secretary of Technology for Virginia and managing director for a health care think tank, Chopra was tasked with leading the administration’s initiatives for a more open, tech-savvy government.

Inspired by private sector trailblazers, Chopra wrote the playbook for governmental open innovation. In Innovative State he offers an absorbing look at how open government can establish a new paradigm for the internet era and allow us to tackle our most challenging problems, from economic development to affordable health care.

HASH(0x975d3018) étoiles sur 5 A required read for anyone who wants to improve government by leveraging the innovation of startups and individual citizens 26 mai 2014
Par SuSu - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I was skeptical of this book at first, thinking it might be potentially biased in a politically. However, I was pleasantly surprised that it very often references achievements by a wide range of Presidents and politicians throughout American history towards improving government by opening up data and resources to the private sector, from Thomas Jefferson to today. For example, it provides information about how Thomas Jefferson was a weather fanatic, which eventually led to the creation of the National Weather Service, upon which a huge portion of our modern economy is built, using it for forecasting, planning, etc.

It clearly shows how government can be, and has been in the past, a catalyst of private sector innovation by removing barriers to entry through easy access to data and other resources. It also provides a critique of areas where previous efforts have failed, and how we could learn from those events today. It explains how this is a bi-partisan supported endeavor: to open up government for the benefit of private sector innovation while simultaneously slimming it down, for example, by providing bureaucratic agencies access to nimble startups in the form of prizes through In the same manner, these "prizes" and other creative venues (like RFP-EZ) to circumvent the overly cumbersome, monolithic procurement processes of government (which are doomed to failure and obsolescence most of the time) and allow, for example, a waiter at a Sizzler restaurant to design the next generation of combat support vehicles.

If you work in the government at any level, for any agency, or if you are interested in making our country a better place, or simply think there are better ways to do business beyond the old procurement practices of yesteryear, this should be a required read. It shows how government can be opened up to leverage the collective ingenuity and innovative spirit of every person in the country (or world even), and should be the "playbook" for how agencies are run in the future.

HASH(0x975d3264) étoiles sur 5 Promoting standards and offering incentives are among the best things government can do 14 octobre 2014
Par Douglas A. Samuelson - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Interesting account of how government can be made to work more effectively and efficiently -- sometimes. Promoting standards and offering incentives are among the best things government can do, and Chopra offers a number of good examples from his own recent tenure as Obama's Chief Technology Officer. On the other hand, his infectious enthusiasm and high energy may have contributed more than he realizes to the successes he recounts -- a couple of the agencies he discussed were already turing sour (VA, in particular) while the book was being printed. Government is too complicated for quick cure-alls. He does give a good quick summary of the most important reasons why reforms don't always work. But Chopra does make a strong case that the right approach, vigorously implemented with top-level backing, can make some parts of it much better, with benefits to us all.

HASH(0x975d351c) étoiles sur 5 A True Believer in Tech? 20 avril 2015
Par Gerald McLaughlin - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Aneesh Chopra's brief autobiography, tracing selected forays into automating aspects of government activities. Negatives, notably how costly and quickly dated, and readily manipulated by managers and users most such systems have been and remain, are not addressed. Perhaps sincere, perhaps a true believer and/or an opportunist?

HASH(0x975d357c) étoiles sur 5 Excellent Book 21 mai 2014
Par Hetal Shah - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
I just started reading this book, and I find it unbiased and bold. Aneesh Chopra is well-credentialed, knowledgeable about the state of technology in the public and private sectors, and is experienced working close to the White House. This book identifies current and future problems and proposes rational solutions to them. I recommend this book to people who are interested in technology and politics in the United States.
