GNOSS guide for... open government

Administrations have changed the way they interact with people thanks to the conversation environments that the Web offers. Governments are open to the citizens to listen, share and create ideas in a collaborative and continuous exchange context. GNOSS offers tools to promote and further develop this relational change.

The social phenomenon created by Barack Obama on his way as the democratic candidate and subsequent election as President of the United States has focused the policy innovation in the development of strategies in environments that promote social networking on the internet. You don’t understand a President Obama without a campaign with social media; as it doesn’t make sense to talk about citizen participation without open and transparent governments. GNOSS provides a platform for promotion of relations between citizens, politicians and administration staff. This guide about government 2.0 aims to bring closer these concepts and provide an approach to the development of administrative and political conversation on the Web.

 

This guide on open government is an evolution of the wiki article ‘government 2.0’ launched by GNOSS. The aim is to deal with these concepts and provide an approach to the development of administrative and political conversation on the Net.

 

Workgroups          

The bureaucracy and the multiplicity of speakers make difficult the creation of legal rules in which a large group of citizens and organizations has to express their opinions. Sometimes the launching of a project is a uthopia in view of the difficulty of bringing together the parties involved and get them to work as a team. GNOSS provides document management tools that can bring solutions to these problems.
           
Example: in the development of a by-law or regulation public parking, a town concil may create a private community in GNOSS, where only the main actors with opinion on the matter would participate. Thus, taxi drivers, neighbours, drivers ... could contribute their ideas to a collaborative document. GNOSS allows you to track and control the history of a document from its origin to its final version. With the input from the users participating in the community, a collaborative regulation would be elaborated. This is far from the tedious task of recovering emails or files sent from different sources to fit the puzzle of a draft document.
 
A private community in GNOSS orders and follows the evolution of the document from the beginning to the end. It offers transparency, participation and conversation in the same space and with specific goals.
 
Collective thinking
Local plans, Environment reports, Youth programs... Development strategies for a región are no longer discussed just on a desk. The Net enables to contrast ideas, draw conclusions and outline work plans from collective thinking. GNOSS offers some services to know and process the opinion of citizens in an open and collaborative way.
 
This is the case of the SWOT tool, which can give you the collective ideas about an actor in a social context. For example, one may consider the role of a town council in the development of new technologies. A working group coordinated by editors can work on a list of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities  and threats. It’s the starting point. From there, you select the people or interest groups that will participate in the development of the SWOT analysis with their votes, comments and even new factors. The results will be represented in complete statistics easy to analyze. Case Study: GNOSS has created a SWOT analysis on ‘La pyme española en internet’ (The Spanish SME on the Internet) where more than 30 professionals are giving their opinions.
 
Relationships with citizens
One trend related to the development of open governments is the transparency of data and information. A political entity can create a community where it shares resources containing statistical data or documentation that remains on the administration archive department. With this information, citizens can create their own applications and even manage their relationship with the administration.
 
Example: An open GNOSS community on employment that includes detailed statistical data from a local or a regional environment. This option offers some opportunities to human resource companies. The information contained in it can be useful to create an application for the development of a specialized profile with the specific strengths and expertise for towns and even neighborhoods. Thus, it is able to raise, for example, very specific training activities.
 
Trend hunting in politics
The concepts for the development of gov 2.0 in local administration that this guide describes are inspired by real examples that you can see on the net. These initiatives are shared in the GNOSS 'Politics 2.0’ community. This space contains reports, studies, links and news with trends in open and inclusive government.

 The thematic specialization of the GNOSS communities enables to find people grouped by common interests. It’s possible to make very specific searches on content and users who excel in highly specialized sectors. How can you find them?

 
Specialized Communities
GNOSS is a network of networks where users share their knowledge in various communities grouped by topics or interests. On a first visit, a recruiter can navigate through GNOSS and see what the thematic areas or communities he/she is interested in. You can also make a detailed search on specialties or specific fields to find professional profiles. GNOSS guarantees they can do it discreetly, since the headhunter has the option of remaining ‘invisible’ to maintain discretion in their operations.
 
Subscription to profiles and categories
GNOSS allows you to follow both users of your interest for a possible job and topics on which you are trying to find an expert or a particular profile. In the first case, the headhunter can subscribe to the profile of the person who has caught his/her attention. So, he/she will receive by email all the information that the user shares in his personal profile. On the other hand, if you still haven’t found a profile of your interest, GNOSS suggest you to subscribe to categories related to the field or sector in which there is a necessity. For example, if you intend to take on an analyst with experience in web 3.0, it makes sense to subscribe to the category ‘Semantic programming languages’ (‘Lenguajes de programación semántica’) in the NextWeb community. The GNOSS user that adds resources in this site is likely an interesting profile for possible recruitment.
 
Augmented profiles
When you find an interesting user or someone that fits into the objective, GNOSS provides access to a profile in which not only the curriculum vitae will be shown. If the user has enabled it, the headhunter can navigate through the user resources and view his work, thesis, reports, participation in events and conferences ... More than enough material to make a good choice.
 
Private communication
Finally, if the recruiter finds a person of his/her interest, GNOSS offers the possibility of sending a private communication through its message service.

  1. General options to create a swot
  2. How to include the SWOT analysis factors
  3. Editors and participants assess and vote
  4. Phase to unify the SWOT analysis
 
The period to assess the SWOT analysis has finished. The manager and editors can work to unify and analyze the opinions of the community members.
To do this, they have to follow a few steps:
 
Selection criteria
The editors set out a text with the statistical criteria that lead them to determine the conclusions and the selection of ‘winning’ and linked factors.
 
Selection and linking of factors
Each factor has different rates depending on how many people and what they voted on the value scale (from ‘In disagreement’ to ‘Total agree’. The tab ‘+’ offers a detailed display with the data. Depending on the 'Criteria' established by the manager and editors, the factors can be selected (these factors are the 'winners') and linked (maybe two or more winning factors are very similar and can be linked as a single factor). To select or link, you have to click in the ‘check’ of the factors you determine. Your selection will be automatically saved.
The factors voted during the performance of the SWOT analysis have a graphic expression as quartiles. Its image allows a quick statistical analysis to get conclusions.
 
Conclusions
Text with the presentation of the conclusions reached after analyzing the SWOT factors.
When the editor or editors have finished their analysis and unification, users will receive an email inviting them to visit the completed SWOT analysis..
 
Do you want to create a SWOT analysis?
To propose a SWOT analysis, you have to enter your community and go to the tab 'Collective thinking'. There you will find the button 'Create swot'. If that tab is not available in your community toolbar, the manager may request it to GNOSS
If you want to see all SWOT analyses you’re taking in, either as a manager, editor or participant, you have a shortcut to ‘My SWOT’ in your dropdown menu (the personal or the corporate one) that will take you to a webpage with your swot list and their state.
You can get more information about the SWOT tool in the GNOSS guide for… performing a SWOT analysis.

  1. General options to create a swot
  2. How to include the SWOT analysis factors
  3. Editors and participants assess and vote
  4. Phase to unify the SWOT analysis
 
This phase is the assessment or answer to the SWOT. Participants vote the factors proposed as weaknesses/threats/ strengths/opportunities in the following scale: 
In disagreement/ Not agree at all / Little agree / Agree/ Total agree
Also, they can add new factors to the proposal, so that the other participants and editors can assess more ideas.
In turn, if the SWOT manager has determined that the SWOT assessments are private, only the voting scale and how many people voted will be shown. However, if you have enabled the votes to be public, participants and publishers will see the average.
The GNOSS SWOT analyses allow the conversation on the issues that participants consider appropriate: they can comment every factor.
The votes are automatically saved and the user can change his vote to a factor while the voting period is open. The participant will receive an alert the day before the closing date and the last day of the SWOT assessment period.

  1. General options to create a swot
  2. How to include the SWOT analysis factors
  3. Editors and participants assess and vote
  4. Phase to unify the SWOT analysis

 

 
 We recommend that you prepare the SWOT analysis factors after having completed the 'General options'. You must complete two fields:
 
Introduction
In this brief text you show what is to be read on the weaknesses/threats/strengths/opportunities of your SWOT analysis. By default, you have a standard text that you can change if you want.
 
Add new  weaknesses, threatens, strengths and opportunities:
It is the enumeration of concepts in each section. You can include as many as you want. A control activated in the upper left side of each of them allows you to put them in the order you prefer.
This process is similar for the four SWOT tabs. They have different colors (just under 'Factors'). To facilitate your work, the tab on which you are including the factors is highlighted.
When you're done with the ‘General options’ and the 'Factors', click on 'Publish'. Note that, at that time, you cannot go back and the process of assessing your SWOT starts... until the selected deadline.

  1. General options to create a swot
  2. How to include the SWOT analysis factors
  3. Editors and participants assess and vote
  4. Phase to unify the SWOT analysis
 
The GNOSS swot is a collective thinking tool that the participants of a community use to analyze and expresses their opinions about an actor, a product or an entity in a social context. If you have decided to create a swot in GNOSS, we offer you some advice to take this step without difficulties:
 
In the ‘Title’ you can point out the key concept your SWOT analysis is about. You must do it in a clear and direct way, with few words. A practical way to know if your proposal works is this: if a contact asks “What does your SWOT analyze?”, the name you have chosen should be sufficient to understand the content.
 
The ‘Description’ sums up the goal of the SWOT analysis. We suggest that you use two or three suggestive concepts that describe the content of your proposal. From there, show who you are addressing to and what you expect of them. Another option is to launch the juiciest and most controversial issues of your SWOT in your description. You can extend as much as you want, but anyway we recommend that first paragraph reflects the essence of your SWOT analysis.
 
The next step to create a SWOT is selecting the ‘Tags’ to describe their content. They are the common concepts or keywords that identify the contents of your SWOT analysis. Think about this: a good tagging makes it easier and faster to find content when someone searches it. We recommend selecting at least ten concepts adequate to describe your SWOT analysis. After tagging, select the categories of the community in which the SWOT analysis you’re proposing fits.
 
Once you have described, tagged and categorized your SWOT analysis, star the selection of people you want to think and analyze with you. You have to choose the participants and the editors of th SWOT analysis. For that, we offer a drop-down menu with the members of your community. Make your selection. The difference between an editor and a participant is that the first on, apart from assessing and voting, can also participate in the process of unifying factors.
The SWOT manager selects if the analysis is visible to the SWOT participants, the community members, the GNOSS users or all internauts.
 
On the other hand, GNOSS allows the manager to choose the privacy of the SWOT analysis participants. By default, the tool enables an option that does not show the identity of the participants. If the editor deems it appropriate, their identity will be made public. GNOSS sends an automatic alert (email) so that the SWOT participant knows that his identity will be public during the vote. Then he has the possibility to leave the SWOT or continue in it, as he considers appropriate. The manager may also determine if the SWOT votes are public or private.
Finally, the manager has to define until what date you can participate in the SWOT analysis. The limit is the end of the chosen day (23:59 h). GNOSS sends automatic alerts a day before the end of the process and the same day it ends.
After closing the 'General options', the manager must write the 'Factors'.
