In traditional governance, the government plays a central role in establishing and enforcing rules, and businesses and citizens were subject to those rules or enforcement processes. This vertical model is based on the assumption that society is relatively simple and predictable, and that a single entity such as the government can prescribe appropriate rules. However, a society based on digital technology is extremely fast-changing, complex, and uncertain. In such a society, it is difficult for the government to keep up with the speed of change. For this reason, a decentralized governance model that emphasizes horizontal relationships among stakeholders such as businesses, individuals, communities, and the government, is considered necessary. This is why we proposed the “agile governance” framework. The framework is composed of two main pillars. The first pillar is “agile governance cycles” and the second pillar is “multi-stakeholder approach.” Let me explain in this order.
