Open innovation values the new, the unknown, the different thing, people, culture, history. As a translation of the PDCA (Plan, Do, Check and Act) cycle model, and an adaptation of the Inspiration, Ideation and Implementation IDEO’s model (even the neuroscience describes the cycle of “trigger - behavior - reward” of our body and mind), and others knowledge areas, I suggest to amplify to a “supposed better understanding” model divided in the Learn, Do and Experience phases.

  • DO

Education - learning and developing - LEARN - DO - EXPERIENCE

 This cycle can be defined as the process of Education, that is, continuously Learning and Developing. Such education can be the same process to any global citizen or any kind of organization or even Government. As citizen, this is a way of education (even wider than the formal education, not only for students). In the Governmental perspective, we can use it to value the citizen participation in three levels: 1 - Learn (when citizen discover what and how public policy and its goods and services works); 2 - Experience (when citizen is using and living its rights and duties); and 3 - Do (when citizen act in a public project, as an executor, as a public servant or as an organization worker or as an alternative social project collaborator).

With this paradigm, we recognize that every citizen and her/his knowledge and experience is important in our global world. Even each Global Public Good, a part of the Social Commons, is fundamental to every local citizen around the world. The basis to this paradigm is the recognition that we can be better if we use the open knowledge, and the principles of the open source principles, that have influenced many collaborative projects that are changing the world, like Wikipedia, Creative Commons, MOOCs, GitHub, etc. Connect people and share knowledge to better lives, with open innovation.

WHAT: the continuous process of education for citizens and organizations, learning and developing the persons and our public power (not only the governmental one);

WHY: to really recognise the potential of every citizen and our collective power, considering the Universal Declaration of Human Rights;

HOW: learning, doing and experiencing lives. From the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), we could to start a GitHub model of project and each activity, project, program, legislation created in the world would be a “fork and branch” project of the bigger SDG;

WHO: Everybody of the 7.5 billion citizens, and our organizations (around 150 million - formal enterprises, non-profit and governmental AND the uncountable informal organizations);

WHERE: everywhere, specially in the “less included” societies;

WHEN: now and until we find something better. But, in 2016, we can start to with the Sustainable Development Goals;

HOW MUCH: it depends on how good the prototype works.
