Governing on the Edge of Change

By
David Rejeski

Imagine, for a moment, a world that is rapidly changing along three dimensions:

Structure: a shift from hierarchies to networks; Ownership: transitions from proprietary to open-source models; and Exchange: a movement from classic markets and commodities to a gift or contribution economy. These shifts are creating new ways of driving social and technological innovation and simultaneously challenging traditional notions of how we govern. For public policymakers, this emerging zone creates opportunities to craft next generation policy, leadership, and management strategies that can work on the edge of change.
