This report examines the efforts by three federal organizations--the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Transportation, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration--to change the behavior of those within the organization to move in greater concert toward the achievement of organizational goals. The three initiatives--One VA, ONE DOT, and One NASA--were each unique and faced distinct challenges. The report examines what it means for a federal organization to become "one," the hurdles each agency faced, and which strategies appear to work well. The author shares lessons learned from each initiative and suggests strategies for enhancing "oneness" in federal organizations. nasa, transportation, va, veterans administrationCollaboration: Networks and Partnerships
