Over the last 15 years, the IBM Center for The Business of Government has worked with more than 300 authors, from large and small academic institutions and non profit organizations across the globe, who have written reports with deep research and many recommendations about improving government effectiveness.  The Center is pleased to announce a new element of our website that links to this extensive network of experts more directly, by linking to a page for each author along with their publications and areas of expertise.  To locate an author and view the corresponding publications written, visit our Report section:  From that page, one may either enter the last name of an author in the search box or press the link “Listing of Report Authors” to review this impressive gallery.  We hope that this will enhance web visitors’ experience with a broad range of content and expertise via our website, adding value from reports that are downloaded or viewed online by thousands of users each year.
