The nation is faced with a crisis in government. Our problems are increasing in complexity just as the most experienced civil servants are set to retire in droves. Unprecedented debt and deficits give the President, Congress and their state and local equivalents very little flexibility when it comes to making investments in the public service. Indeed, it is more likely that budgets for government will be cut in the coming decade than expanded, at the same time, demands on government - with the aging population, global instability, climate change and a host of other problems - will be much greater. helps government leaders tackle the challenges through better “people management” tools, methods and practices. Given the unlikelihood that our problems will be solved through bigger governments, the workforce itself must become better motivated, more highly skilled, and much more productive. Through proven techniques, targeted investments, training for managers and supervisors, and the use of HR technologies, far greater productivity in government can be achieved - just as it has in leading U.S. private sector organizations and in exceptional governments elsewhere in the world. brings these examples and best practices together in one place with a determined focus on Return on Investment (ROI) techniques.
