“This is the beginning of changing the way we think ... 100 Days helped re-inforce and support the use of non-traditional approaches.” 100 days core team member
The purpose of the 100 Days of Innovation initiative (“100 Days”) was to explore the following question:
What are the conditions that support innovation within the Nova Scotia provincial government so that we might deliver more effective public services?
It was designed to be a small-scale experiment that could lay the ground for larger corporate interventions seeking to create space for innovation in government.
The initiative took a select number of existing projects through a facilitated 100 day process, with an intention to generate four primary outcomes:
To learn about the corporate conditions necessary to encourage and support innovation and leverage this learning to influence corporate direction;
To amplify the innovative aspects of the projects by introducing them to new approaches and frameworks;
To shift perspectives and mindsets on how we approach our work; and
To develop networks, share knowledge, and build capacity for innovation across traditional working boundaries.
This was internal project and I do not have permission to share the resources developed during this project.
