dc.description.abstractThe modern mature state is necessarily responsible for designing and managing complex systems. These frequently involve both technological and political issues simultaneously. The modern state therefore requires cadres of professionals cognizant and skilled in technology and policy. Yet many countries, in particular those that have recently transitioned to the state of being modern states, traditionally educate their prospective leaders exclusively in either technical or social expertise. The conclusion is that modern mature states need educational research programs that prepare cadres for leadership in Technology Policy. An example makes the point. As suggested by the case of Singapore, coherent policy formation for “big data”, for the collection and use of massive data on individuals and collective enterprises, requires leadership that is both sensitive to the political issues, and knowledgeable about the technological potential.en_US
