Part IV: Applying The Drucker Approach To Reinventing Government Agencies
In this fourth and final installment of this MMN e-book series, unlock Drucker’s 6 steps to planning and implementation as well as the thought leader’s 4 keys to making real change happen in your government agency.
In Part III of this e-book, we discussed the need for every agency to define what they mean by results and the importance of measurement in determining whether or not they are succeeding in converting mission-driven goals into operating reality. To master the complete process of reinventing government, start with Parts I through III, starting here.
Leadership Lessons For Government Executives
Part IV briefly outlines a very special Drucker approach to structured/strategic planning for each government agency. When developing such a plan, agency executives will inevitably discover what new and different (i.e., innovative) things have to be done.
Once this is accomplished, it must be decided how it will be done. We suggest government agency executives learn the best practices in making innovation happen–practices used by both successful for-profit & not-for-profit organizations.
Part IV features an article on things every government agency executive should know about innovation, written by Dr. William Cohen, Major General, USAF, Ret. (and Drucker’s first PhD student) & MMN’s editorial staff.
