Learning from First Responders: When Your Systems Have to Work

by Dylan Richard

One of the side stories of the 2012 presidential campaign was the success of Obama's software team. The team built their software in-house, and put into practice many ideas from the DevOps world. Game day was one of the most important: an exercise in which part of the team tried as hard as possible to break their systems, while the rest of the team tried to keep things running. They simulated everything from database failure to massive network outages. And as a result, when the election came, they were certain that they could respond to any crisis.

Policy-Oriented Technology Assessment Across Europe: Expanding Capacities

by Lars Klüver and Øjvind Nielsen, Rasmus

This book is open access under a CC-BY license.Policy-making to address grand challenges faces greater complexity than any previous project of modernization. Future scenarios are haunted by uncertainty and there is real ambivalence as to the values that policy should strive for. In this situation decision-makers look to research and innovation to provide answers and solutions. But neither can the great transitions ahead be planned by science, nor will conventional methods of innovation bring such transitions about. A turn to interactive governance is therefore underway with policy-makers and citizens becoming increasingly involved in processes of deliberating futures. Technology Assessment (TA) is the art of structuring such processes. TA goes beyond traditional expert policy analysis by s...
