Last Friday, the IBM Center for The Business of Government and the Partnership for Public Service had the honor of co-hosting a group of leading experts from academe, as well as several former senior officials from Administrations of both parties, to frame key management issues and opportunities for the next Presidential term.
With each edition, my goal is straightforward: to introduce readers to the works, insights,
and advice from some of today’s key government executives, who are tackling significant
management challenges and seizing opportunities to lead.
Today, the Center for the Business of Government is pleased to release our latest view of key issues facing public sector leaders and stakeholders over the next several years: “Six Trends Driving Change in Government.”
The IBM Center for The Business of Government has
looked across our interactions with government leaders and stakeholders, as well as the
considerable work and thinking of our authors, to identify a set of trends that will
drive change in government.
Government executives need to understand one of the most complex bureaucratic processes in government: the federal procurement system. Understanding this system is key to a successful tenure in government. The new IBM Center report, A Guide for Agency Leaders on Federal Acquisition can help agency leaders understand the basics of the federal procurement process.
