The Institute on Management and Leadership is a premier and engaging two-day executive education program led by the Leadership for a Networked World at Harvard University. This event invites private sector partners to sit alongside state chief administrators to discuss challenges for 2019 and develop new tools for success in state government.
Theme: 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 creativityTo 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.
