Government leaders are being told that they are too resistant to change and often sluggish at making innovative ideas a reality. Public officials are also under mounting pressure to become more accountable to their constituents by better engaging their stakeholders during all stages of government decisions.
Until recently, stakeholder consultations involved public forums, private meetings, and mail and email correspondence. Today, government stakeholders are demanding change. They want to use blogs, wikis, and other online tools to help them collaborate with government in less time while using fewer resources.
Leading governments are getting the message loud and clear. They are making a concerted effort to catch-up on Web 2.0 to learn about the risks associated with this new form of web-based communication, but also the opportunities that Web 2.0 creates for their agencies and constituents.
