ICT Industry Coordination

(Links to Strategy 3: Organisational Capability)


Staff Support: Keith Davidson

Status: Active Smiley Smiley


New project in 2008/09 Business Plan, seeking to foster the development of intra-industry co-operation.

The ICT sector is fragmented and represented by a large number of independent organisations, and this project established to see what INZ can catalyse from the divergent siblings organisations to foster greater collaboration.

INZ has already initiated ICT*, a collaborative 1/4rly meeting between InternetNZ, TUANZ, NZ Computer Society, ALGIM and Women in Technology.

NOTE: The subsequent establishment of the Digital Development Council and work towards the Digital Development Forum reducesthe priority for this project, with substantial efforts happening within those fora.

Generally superceded by the establishment of the Digital Development Council, but may be benefits in closer co-operation between the similar siblings on operational issues.
