The Trump Administration’s Government Improvement Efforts: What Do the Experts Think?

In Partnership with the Center for Accountability and Performance
Sept. 27 | 1 p.m. ET

In an October 2016 paper, Shelley Metzenbaum and Robert Shea, former officials at the U.S. Office of Management and Budget with responsibility for federal performance management, recommended that the incoming administration expand the use of  outcomes-focused goals, regularly review performance data, perform appropriately rigorous evaluations to determine what works and more.

In this webinar they will revisit these recommendations and discuss the extent they see the Trump administration employing these proven practices in its efforts to reform and improve the management of the federal government.
