Part III: Applying The Drucker Approach To Reinventing Government Agencies
Welcome to Part III where we focus on the need for results-focused government agencies.
In Part II we discussed why Peter F. Drucker believed every government agency must practice organized abandonment of the outworn, outgrown, and obsolete. Purposeful abandonment is a surefire way to increase agency productivity, spark innovation, and reduce costs.
The worst offender of failing to abandon result-less activities and programs, observed Peter F. Drucker, is government.
Drucker developed a long series of questions embodied in a structured approach to agency planning and implementation that essentially revolve around three fundamental questions:
• What is the function of this agency?
• If we were not doing this today, knowing what we now know, would we go into it?
• Is the mission of this agency or any of its programs still vital? And if it is, how should it best be carried out?
From unleashing the power of OKR (Objectives, Key Results), to internalizing the 7 things every government executive must know about measurement, to empowering your organization to structure for innovation, Part III of Applying the Drucker Approach to Reinventing Government Agencies lays the foundation for building a results-driven government.
