About the Summit


Federal agency leaders are innovating at an unprecedented pace. Strategies such as shared services, advanced analytics, cloud-based computing, and digital services are increasing efficiency and effectiveness. Even so, it's imperative that such innovation be accelerated and expanded… Yet when looking to the opportunities on the horizon, along with the ambitious goals of the President’s Management Agenda, it’s imperative that innovation be accelerated and extended, and ultimately translated into public value and impact for citizens.

To help federal leaders improve and expand these strategies, the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard, Leadership for a Networked World, and Booz Allen Hamilton are convening senior-most leaders for The 2015 Federal Leadership Summit: Innovation with Impact. This invitation-only Summit, to be held at the American Institute of Architects in Washington D.C. on February 26th and 27th 2015, provides an opportunity for candid collaboration with federal peers, Harvard faculty and researchers, and select industry experts on the future of federal shared services and digital strategies.

The Summit is designed as a practical workshop, in which case studies, peer-to-peer problem-solving sessions and plenary sessions will be used to drive real progress on key initiatives. Participants will leave the Summit prepared and poised to lead their organizations confidently toward the future of shared services and digital strategies.
