What are the insitutional innovations needed for government?

People always talk about how difficult business strategies are to develop and implement. I think doing it on a national level, to an entire industry is even harder. In a company, there are already many moving parts but for a country, that number just shoots up exponentially.

Recently, I was drafted into a working committee that is part of a bigger agenda of conducting an economic review of Singapore. The challenge to my committee was to review the entire creative industries, including digital media and to make policy recommendations on what need to be done to this sector. Where do we start?

The initial thought was to suggest streamlining the operations of different agencies under the creative umbrella. To me however, that feels unsatisfactory. Efficiency only means releasing more resources but how we manage these resources in new and creative ways are left unexplored.

To move on, we need to start answering tough questions:

-Is the current agency structure the best way to organise funding?
-How do we turn our resources into a pull platform where companies can pull whatever resources they need to build their businesses more effectively?
-What are the under lying changes taking place in our sectors? Are these changes permanent? If not, how do we prepare for continuous disruption?
-How we turn our processes into a real democracy?
