Serving as the new Public Manager liaison for Young Government Leaders, I was asked this question for a board member profile to appear in the next newsletter. Ironically, the next issue of The Public Manager magazine will address the topic "Transforming Bureaucratic Cultures," which was also the theme of their summer conference.
In order to select authors and topics that deal with issues that are important to you, I would like to pose two questions:
1. If you could wave a magic wand and change something about government, what would it be?
2. If you have seen this change happen in another agency, can you provide a specific example?
Your responses to these two questions will help to address not only the challenges but also provide some practical case studies/solutions that respond to them.
Thank you for your feedback!
