In early meetings of the Advisory Board (M Corp is a member), we established that this conference was different, it was focused on the future of state government and there was tremendous sponsorship for change.
This conference has brought together a great group of government and private-sector representatives who are committed to working together to create not only tremendous content for the conference, but to create energy and sustainable enthusiasm for the transformation of key areas including government workforce, customer service, procurement and performance ic outcomes.
With less than 10 days to go until the conference, we are thrilled with how the event has been shaped, and delighted that the commitment from partners is as strong as ever.
Secretary of Government Operations Marybel Batjer spoke at the recent Advisory Board reception and was able to provide insights, as well as to confirm the level of interest and support for this conference, to the group. It was inspiring to learn of the many transformation projects by state and local government organizations that have been submitted for award consideration during the conference. People are taking the need for change seriously and truly working to make government more efficient, responsive and effective.
With less than 10 days to go until the conference, we are thrilled with how the event has been shaped, and delighted that the commitment from partners is as strong as ever. We’re also excited and proud to be finalizing our presentation, which CEO Alex Castro will deliver. The presentation is aimed at helping state organizations improve organizational outcomes by selecting projects that have the highest chance of success – which can be done through using an innovative, metrics-driven approach to determining organizational capability and capacity.
With the Brown Administration and the media becoming increasingly intolerant of negative outcomes, as well as the increases in government transparency and accountability, it’s critical that organizations change the way that they make such decisions. The current approach is falling short and increasing organizational exposure to increased risks, costs and public scrutiny.
We are ecstatic that more than 100 participants have signed up for our session, and we look forward to helping the state continue its momentum toward transformation.
Private-sector companies have the potential to add true value when they put aside egos and stove-piped agendas and truly partner with government. This in itself is transformative, and we are thrilled to be a part of creating this Administration’s legacy of innovation and improvement.
