Digital Policymaking Needs to be Lean and Agile – Verhulst Introduces the Digital Policy Model Canvas

September 29, 2017

Stefaan Verhulst, member of the CMDS advisory board and co-founder of the The Governance Lab, has recently written about the digital policy model canvas, a tool developed by The Governance Lab that “would guide policy makers to derive specific policies and regulatory mechanisms in an agile and iterative manner – integrating both design thinking and evidence based policy making.”

Verhulst believes that a canvas approach can greatly enhance the efficiency of digital policymaking as it “helps translate broad insights and understandings to the needs of a particular country, and it also helps define the key issues at stake as well as metrics to evaluate success, and suggest avenues for possible iteration and improvement.” Read more about the digital policy model canvas here.
