About the Collaboration Project
The Collaboration Project is an independent forum of leaders who share a commitment to the adoption and use of collaborative technologies to solve the complex problems of public management. Powered by the National Academy of Public Administration, this "wikified" space is designed to share ideas, examples and insights on the adoption of Web 2.0 technologies in the field of public governance.
With the support of dedicated staff and access to the National Academy's distinguished Fellows, and subject matter experts, the Collaboration Project convenes members in person and via the Project's virtual collaboration space to share best practices, produce research on the opportunities and challenges of collaboration, and assist agencies in implementing collaborative tools and approaches. Join the Collaboration Project today!
We encourage you to help create a vibrant community by adding your thoughts and ideas, challenges and opportunities, to this site to help each other in the creation of strategies and frameworks to enable Government 2.0 transformation.
