In the face of the COVID-19 epidemic, many residents have a shortage of materials and unmet basic material needs due to insufficient government support and high community operation in the process of sealing and control. During the epidemic prevention and control period, a group of teams calling themselves "regiment commanders" appeared in Shanghai to organize residents' group shopping funds, which alleviated the living difficulties of Shanghai residents to a certain extent, solved the government's supply problems, promoted the formation of a diversified co-governance pattern, and improved the effectiveness of social governance. The regiment leader comes from various industries in society. They actively participate in grassroots social governance and become the backbone of new students in social governance, highlighting the great potential of social governance. This paper analyses the group purchase operation mode of a "commission leader" in Shanghai as the entry point for investigation, and uses the theory of citizen participation and the theory of diversified governance to give countermeasures for the development prospects of Shanghai's "commission leader" from three perspectives: technological breakthroughs, sinking of party members and community intervention.
