Since the creation of the IBM Center for The Business of
Government over fourteen years ago, it has been our goal to
help public sector leaders and managers address real-world
problems by sponsoring independent, third-party research
from top minds in academe and the nonprofit sector.
A Presidential election year provides an opportunity to step back and consider major issues that will face government in the future. Our Center has devoted significant attention to this topic 4, 8, and 12 years ago, and this year we will build on that tradition.
