The Business of Government - Summer 2013 Edition

This edition of The Business of Government magazine surveys a variety of public management issues facing us today. Whether it’s leading in the “new normal” of “doing more with less,” or how the lack of resources drives the need to “innovate, “collaborate,” or “change” the way you do business; some may say buzz words abound. What we seek to do is go beyond the buzz to introduce and connect our readers to actual public-sector executives who are leading agencies or initiatives that are focused on critical missions. The leaders profiled in this edition offer compelling insights, lessons learned, and, most of all, advice to others that is marked by clarity of mind and a sense of purpose.
