The City of Amsterdam wants to transform into a smart city. To answer the challenges of tomorrow’s world the City sees the need to radically innovate her way of working.

Deloitte helped the City to radically innovate the approach to poverty reduction. After a phase of observing the ‘customer’ an edge journey was organized during which public and private stakeholders came up with 8 radical solutions. A mixed jury has chosen 3 of them and these are placed into an ‘accelerator’, an innovation organization on the edge. The radical solutions were developed with the Deloitte GovLab ‘Innovation by Design’ methodology. So far all three experiments seem to be successful and ready to be told.
