This chapter discusses future avenues of digital transformations. As public value-creation from data and digitalization becomes increasingly important for public innovation, the chapter suggests three complementary strategical directions for the public sector: experimental government, inclusive government, and anticipatory government. The directions could help governments induce innovation, helping us create “the future we want”, as the declaration behind the Sustainable Development Goals puts it. The chapter discusses, among other things, the benefits of learning by doing, the emergence of public–private digital ecosystems and platforms, and the impact of new waves of artificial intelligence.
