Report Outlines Five Recommendations and Practical Steps for Implementation
WASHINGTON, D.C. – A study team from the National Academy of Public Administration and the Project Management Institute (PMI) today released a new report, “Building an Agile Federal Government: A Call to Action,” that outlines five recommendations for leaders to make the government more agile, and practical steps for their implementation.
This report was sponsored by the Samuel Freeman Charitable Trust and PMI.
“To make real progress on the challenges we face as a nation, government must start doing things differently – and become more agile,” said Terry Gerton, President and CEO of the Academy. “Our study team conducted research and analysis to consider how agile government differs from current management practices, what major issues and impediments hinder agile adoption, and what various departments and agencies need to do to unlock the true potential of agile. The result is a set of five practical recommendations with specific implementation steps that we believe can increase agility. This report is designed to help federal leaders and managers infuse agile thinking throughout their agencies, leading to better outcomes and improved trust in government.”
