Government That Works is all about the people who are dedicated to this results revolution.
Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.
How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!
We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.
We’re working with Mass Ingenuity to build an enterprise-wide performance management framework to guide our efforts, achieve measurable results and connect every one of our people with the agency’s mission. Their comprehensive management solution aligns us internally and with our Governor’s performance management system.
This book addresses long-neglected issues of efficiency, timeliness, and trust in government—leaders will be amazed at what they can do by following the lessons and examples in this remarkable book!
Our citizens demand transparency and accountability. Government must achieve outcomes that matter. Business at the Speed of Now is more than thought-provoking it provides answers every leader needs to understand.
We struggled for years for the right system for my government work and we have found it. This is the system we need to do the right work. Now the Legislature will be able to make informed decisions, see improvements and support our agency’s efforts.
If I could go back, I’d have implemented a management system framework before investing in lean.
This is the most engaging and valuable work I have done in my government career. Now [our agency] has the credibility to better influence the Legislature’s decisions and they are listening to us. This applies to the Governor’s office as well. The time we spent building our Management System has been well worth it and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
In the first three months we have knocked down the silos, began to think like an enterprise, and see future opportunity to become a true outcomes-based agency.
