The Fourth Industrial Revolution is characterized by the unprecedented advances in technology transforming the way individuals and groups across society live, work and interact. New principles, protocols, rules and policies are needed to accelerate the positive and inclusive impacts of these technologies, while minimizing or eliminating their negative consequences.
There is an urgent need for a more agile approach to governing emerging technologies and the business models and social interaction structures they enable. We define agile governance as adaptive, human-centred, inclusive and sustainable policymaking, which acknowledges that policy development is no longer limited to governments but rather is an increasingly multistakeholder effort.
While there is widespread recognition of the need for agile governance and an interesting set of agile governance tools that is developing, policy makers find it hard to identify which policy tool to use to address what type of policy challenge. The Global Future Council on Agile Governance developed an Agile Governance Navigator, helping policy makers to navigate to useful tools that can help solve their policy questions.
