Governments are moving from hierarchies to networks to enable intragovernment collaboration, and nurturing collaborative public-private ecosystems to achieve shared outcomes. Explore the nine transformational trends that illustrate governments “bringing down walls” to deliver solutions.

Cross-cutting trends

Governments are eliminating silos in areas such as data, funding, and workforce to pool resources and capabilities.

Fluid government workforce models

To tackle changing citizen preferences, employee needs, and talent shortages, governments are exploring new workforce models and are prioritising flexibility.


Bridging the data-sharing chasm

Although public sector data-sharing has increased, there’s more to do to balance its upside with challenges.


Tackling funding silos

Fostering greater collaboration and shared problem-solving to create greater public value.


Tailored public services

Digital technology is enabling greater personalization by government. These tailored services can be more effective and equitable.


Back-office innovations improving mission performance

Government back-office functions and processes are moving beyond automations and internal efficiency.

Domain-focused trends

Governments are nurturing collaborative public-private ecosystems to take advantage of shared knowledge and unique strengths to drive solutions in key government domains.

Regulation that enables innovation

To catalyse innovation, government regulatory agencies encourage investment, streamline regulation, and set standards to promote industry best practices.


Teaming up to deliver whole health

Governments are exploring an approach that centers on wellness and prevention, not just treatment of disease.


End-to-end justice

Creating a more just society calls for collaboration and resource-sharing across the justice system and beyond with businesses, nonprofits, and communities.
