‘Fracture. The collision between technology and democracy—and how we fix it’ (2023)

A world of technological innovation and transformation increasingly surrounds us. Yet one of the most important aspects of our lives remains a notable exception: our governments. Their long-standing ambitions to use digital, data, and technology to deliver fundamental improvements in the relationships between the citizen and the state, and between nation states, remain largely unfulfilled.

The result is a growing digital / policy divide, an existential gulf between governments’ capabilities and citizens’ needs and expectations. Meanwhile, adversaries from hostile states to cyber criminals exploit technology to undermine security, stability, prosperity, and trust in democracy.

Leaving our governments decorated with a sprinkle of digital transformation glitter, but no real reform, isn’t an option. Digital has an essential role to play in democratic renewal. It can help to engage citizens in the co-creation and co-design of policies and services, provide continuous feedback and data to inform and update policymaking, enable rapid experimentation to learn and adapt faster, improve organisation design, and exploit platform technologies for innovation, efficiency, agility, and scale.

Jerry’s latest book Fracture explores the recent, current, and emerging landscape to help politicians and policymakers better understand and exploit digital technologies and practices to learn smarterreact faster, and adapt better.

“… one of the most comprehensive books on tech policy … really excellent.

Digitizing Government

‘After Shock’ (2020)

After Shock marks the 50th anniversary of Alvin Toffler’s influential Future Shock. It’s a collection of the world’s foremost futurists reflecting on the past 50 years and the 50 years yet to come. VoeTek’s CTO, Dr Jerry Fishenden, is one of the contributors to this ground-breaking book.

‘Digitizing Government’ (2014)

Jerry is also co-author of the best-selling business title Digitizing Government, a practical handbook on the successful implementation of new digital business models.

“Digitizing Government provides real insight into the challenges of bringing large public sector institutions into the digital age. But don’t be fooled into thinking that this is a book about technology – it is actually about how you bring about fundamental transformation in large organisations. Technology matters, but so does openness to new ideas and an emphasis on getting things done.” 
Julian Birkinshaw, Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, London Business School

“This book gives practical insight and encouragement for everyone leading, building, operating, and assuring the new digital future for UK government. But it is also an essential read for those who need to understand what digital means and how much more than just new technology it is going to take to make digital public services a reality.” 
Sally Howes, Digital Director, National Audit Office, UK
