The Problem:

A disconnect between the velocity of government and its capacity to envision and manage complex regulatory and programmatic interventions, and the velocity of the regulated sector, producing unexpected future outcomes.

The Solution:

Ideally, adaptive Governance permits government to pattern an intervention to match the velocity of a regulated sector thereby achieving a desired future goal.

connections summary
Connections: Summary
  • Government is a hierarchy of nodes. It is rigid, suitable for mass production
  • Economic Development services are resources, ideas and information nodes connected by hubs. They are rhizomic like industry
  • New industry clusters are new connections and rapidly disseminated information, resources, products (percolating)
  • Interlocking policy and management networks create hubs that keep the network productive and reduces vulnerability to failure particularly if percolation is encouraged.
