Open and Innovative Government in Thailand

Seminar for Fostering Innovative Future

The governments have adjusted themselves into the result-oriented management additional to the conventional principles like the ideal-typed bureaucracy or machinelike administration which sometimes obstructed the policy implementation. The new way of public management has supported the governments in actualizing the public services and achieving the expected outcomes. Nevertheless, the world has changed into the digital age enabling the people to monitor the governments’ performances more closely. To possess the good governance, the result-oriented management is not enough anymore; the public participation by the usage of the open data in the policy formulation process becomes more necessary and compulsory.
