Making Data Real – Lessons From and For Federal Leaders

Featured

Earlier this fall, we co-hosted an event with the Partnership for Public Service that featured three federal executives leading innovative analytic efforts in their agencies. Over the last few weeks, we extended the conversation by blogging on seven government executives who successfully implemented analytics initiatives in their agencies. They shared their insights on ways to be successful, and hurdles to be mindful of, when beginning an analytics initiative.

Forty years ago, Congress passed a law to make government agencies more accountable and transparent in how they sought advice from industry and the public. It was called the Federal Advisory Committee Act. But over the years, the way the law was implemented led to less citizen involvement and reluctance by agencies from seeking advice.
