The IBM Center launched this blog in September 2009 to continue a dialogue on government management challenges, begun in an earlier blog about the 2008-2009 Presidential Transition.
President Barack Obama has put his key staff in place and they have laid out an ambitious agenda. The challenge now for government executives is how to get it done. This blog will chronicle what the White House, agencies, and executives across government are doing to deliver on their mission and goals.
It will link to stories elsewhere on the Web as well as the work of the IBM Center’s researchers. We invite you to contribute your insights as well!
By the way, our Presidential Transition blog’s index contains a rich overview of the management issues facing the Obama Administration and how it began approaching them in its first 200 days, so you may want to look there, as well. In addition, the Center created a special Presidential Transition website containing resources for new leaders that you might find helpful, as well.
