The article discusses the concept of anticipatory governance, or governance that relies on forecasting and coordinated data collection to meet complex challenges. The authors discuss its application in the U.S. executive branch for policy decision making, as outlined in the report "Anticipatory Governance: Practical Upgrades," by the Project on Forward Engagement. The authors look at the use of foresight analysis to inform policy decisions, the use of networks in bureaucratic management and government information sharing, as well as inter-agency communication and networking.
