Driving Government Performance: Leadership Strategies that Produce Results, Short Course

  • Application Deadline
  • 5 days


In every public agency, the leadership team faces the challenge of ratcheting up performance in a way that produces real results that citizens value — and that generates the resources and flexibility needed to do even better in the future.

But what results? Given the multiplicity of their responsibilities, what specific results should the leadership team attempt to improve first? What exactly would it mean to improve performance? How will everyone in the organization — including front-line employees — know when they have, indeed, ratcheted their performance up a significant notch? How will legislators know? How will citizens know?

And what works? Given limited resources and flexibility, how can public executives achieve such improvements? What approaches will prove effective in what circumstances? How can public executives measure performance in a way that motivates both employees and collaborators? How can public executives adapt strategies that have been successfully employed in other circumstances to produce meaningful results in their own, unique organizations?
