Esri announced the publication of Smarter Government Workbook: A 14-Week Implementation Guide to Governing for Results by former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley. The book distills the lessons from his previous book, Smarter Government: How to Govern for Results in the Information AgeIt presents a concise, interactive, easy to follow, 14-week plan that any government can follow to achieve strategic performance management. The workbook allows readers to devise a framework for:
- Gather and share timely and accurate information
- Quickly deploy resources.
- Build leadership and collaboration.
- Develop and refine effective strategic objectives and key performance indicators.
- Evaluate results.
En Smarter Government, O'Malley drew on his deep experience implementing performance measurement and management systems (“Stat”) at the city and state levels in Baltimore and Maryland. As a result of these policies, the region experienced the largest reduction in crime of any large city in US history; reversing a 300-year decline in the health of the Chesapeake Bay and the schools ranked first in the United States for five years in a row.
"We recently lost track of the important role that governors play," O'Malley said. “They have a unified command and they get ahead of a fast-moving crisis. These are the leadership skills that save lives when a crisis strikes.”
Now leaders can take these proven solutions and apply them to their own government organizations in less than four months. Smarter Government Workbook It is a practical companion for Smarter Government and to fulfill Stat's promise.
