 Change in the organization: Public organizations are designed under hierarchical

models that have nothing to do with efficiency. It is imperative to reorganize

government, templates and defining the jobs to act under a network model oriented

projects and achieving results.

 Change in the forms of relationship: the counter at the roundtable, the mail to online

communication, of the obligation to the physical presence of related facilities, etc.

(2012: 27).

We see that now, under the axes of transparency, participation and collaboration, open

government has positioned itself as a new way of strengthening government capacities and

modernization of public administration, taking only the basis of information technologies




To meet the objective is to propose some elements related to research in the classroom and the

practical analysis of the strategies of governance where the Open Government to intervene,

initially visualize the four components this type of government through two axes. The first axis

concerns the transverse component: transparency. The second axis is composed collaborative

participation, intra-governmental collaboration and public-private partnership.

2a.- Cross Axis

This axis could identify with transparency. Today the process of making of public decisions

requires access to information and quality of information and transparency in the sense view that

government actors cooperate by providing information and documents to the needs of the public

using information technologies in order to evaluate the action and governance in the making of

decisions and public policies. This is a new approach to transparency.
