Smarter Government: The Data & The Method


New information technology has changed the formula for effective leadership and management in the Information Age. As profiled in his forthcoming book, O/Malley will draw from humorous and revealing stories about human nature gathered from his service as Mayor and Governor. He will share details from his book that will layout a new way of governing which every public servant has the ability to call into action. But this is not your grandparent’s way of getting things done — it requires a radical commitment to openness and transparency; the courage to follow the data wherever it might lead; and a relentless commitment to measuring the outputs of government on a real-time basis for all to see. It is all about producing better results — real-time — for real people.
