What does the public sector of the future look like? Government models of the past are not sustainable, requiring major changes and creative solutions to maintain government innovation and improve our standard of living. Guiding these changes are several key questions: How can policy be more responsive to societal needs and citizen demands? Where can new business and technological models enable improved delivery? What type of leadership is needed for sustained progress?
To address these questions, create an agenda for change, and help government leaders delivering public service for the future, Leadership for a Networked World, Accenture, and the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard convened public sector leaders, top practitioners, and Harvard faculty, fellows, and researchers for the 2014 Public Sector for the Future Summit.
This report describes how these leaders identified new strategies during the Summit to adopt and implement near-term government innovations, and discovered long-term solutions and the leadership strategies needed to deliver a more efficient, effective and responsive government.
