Report - 2016 Federal Leadership Summit
Imagine how the federal government would operate—and what it could accomplish—if it were equipped to thrive in the 21st century. It would draw on predictive power, agile operations, and on-demand services to respond swiftly to citizen needs. It would leverage seamless shared services and robust data and analytics to deliver the outcomes they demand. And it would possess a dynamic culture that embraces technology, innovation, and continuous improvement to help the country respond to new challenges and opportunities. In short, a more modern and innovative federal government would be in a position to help the United States continue to flourish in an ever-changing world.
To help federal leaders work toward this vision, Leadership for a Networked World and the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard, in collaboration with Booz Allen Hamilton, convened senior-most leaders for The 2016 Federal Leadership Summit: Harmonizing Data, Shared Services, and Culture. Held at the American Institute of Architects in Washington, D.C. on March 3 – 4, 2016, the Summit provided an unparalleled opportunity to learn from and work with federal peers, Harvard faculty and researchers, and select industry experts on methods for adapting organizational culture to a new era of data-intensive government.
