Government Innovation

Although some would consider it an oxymoron, government innovation is beginning to blossom.  For example, Todd Park, a successful entrepreneur, recently became US CTO, reporting to President Obama.

Todd quickly launched the Presidential Innovation Fellowship Program to address several key initiatives.

It is important to note that Todd is not alone in this effort.  Forward-looking cities and states across the country and around the globe are appointing Innovation Officers to help make governments more effective in providing services to their constituents/customers.

Here is a video of the launch of the Presidential Innovation Fellows program.
