- About us
We talked this week about David Walker’s recommendations in Comeback America to address and reduce the debt. In addition to his suggestions about revising the budget process to promote zero based budgeting and required controls on spending, Walker advocates a very thoughtful strategic planning approach across the Federal government.
In my experience, the process of developing strategic plans is almost as important as the results – the process generates interesting connections, dialog, and prioritization of challenges, possible solutions, and next steps. It also allows many leaders to step up and shine.
Also of note this week:
As much of the country begins to experience challenging winter weather, many organizations are reviewing policies and procedures for maintaining continuity of operations. We’ll talk next week about the impact of telework on infrastructure expenses, mission and people. We’ll share some best practices from IBM about the impact on real estate costs, morale, hiring and retaining employees, and managing an often-remote workforce.
Although we’ll be posting next week, I’d like to wish each of you a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year. While I’m enjoying this weekend with my family, I’ll be keeping our deployed personnel in my thoughts. We appreciate everything that you do.
