The 2019 Institute on Management and Leadership will focus on Driving Good Government.
What will government outcomes look like in the future? How will public value be measured? What can state leaders do to build a vision for the future and the case for change? These pivotal questions are at the forefront for innovative government thinkers as they move to deliver on the promise of good government.
To move forward, both new and current state chief administrators must translate vision into action and develop a strong portfolio of innovations. To meet citizen demands, they must prepare their organizations to quickly implement “uptake” reforms—proven programs that require robust leadership—and “edge” innovations—untested ideas with enormous potential.
Yet creating a vision for change and delivering the promise won’t necessarily be easy. Progress will require the ability to not only manage the day-to-day operations of government and deal with inevitable crisis, but also to lead initiatives that will create a foundation for better outcomes and public value. It will also be imperative to design breakthrough innovations, build new capabilities for the digital world, and develop agile teams and a working environment that supports trust, experimentation, and creativity
To help state chief administrators around the country respond to this call to action, Leadership for a Networked World and the National Association of State Chief Administrators are convening the 2019 NASCA Institute on Management and Leadership: Driving Good Government. This event will feature two state-developed case studies.
NASCA State Members are invited to submit a brief (2-3 sentence) nomination using the form below, and then participate in a short interview for selection. Please review the Case Study Selection Process & Criteria before submitting. Deadline to submit nominations is March 15, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. ET.
