Developing a Management Roadmap

Sound management enables the effective implementation of policy and is essential for a successful presidency. The new president needs an agenda planned well in advance that speaks to how to get its policies implemented, not just what it will do.

The Partnership and the IBM Center for the Business of Government have joined together to sponsor a series of roundtable dialogues with key government leaders and stakeholders to inform the next president about critical federal management issues, and recommend actions that strengthen the new administration’s capacity to address key challenges. Through these roundtables, the Partnership and the IBM Center have developed a Management Roadmap for the next administration to share the lessons learned, identify promising and proposed initiatives, and offer ideas on successful implementation.

Our primary objectives are to provide reliable, easy-to-understand information about federal management challenges; recommend management actions for the incoming administration; guide transition teams on how to organize and prioritize to achieve desired outcomes; and offer experienced counsel and advice to incoming political appointees.
