The Center’s 25th Anniversary and Book Release Event

We recently celebrated the Center’s 25th Anniversary and the release of a new book, Transforming the Business of Government - Insights on Resiliency, Innovation, and Performance.

We were honored to host many special guests at our 25th Anniversary event including senior leaders from the current and former Administration, who joined a panel discussion to share their experiences and insights on how strong management drives mission outcomes; recipients of the Center’s 25th Anniversary Challenge Grant who wrote chapters for the new book and shared their expertise on the future of government management and operations; leaders of the Center, who told the story of our beginnings; current IBM leaders who support our mission; and The Partnership for Public Service, who shared their fantastic space for the event!


Preparing governments for future shocks

The Center has dedicated time and resources to explore how best government agencies can prepare, address, and overcome the disruptive inevitabilities of “future shocks”—those increasingly common and severe events that have effects within and across nations.

Partnering with the National Academy of Public Administration and the IBM Institute for Business Value, as well as other U.S. and global partners, the Center launched a “Future Shocks” initiative in 2022 to help government leaders further identify core capabilities critical to building resilience, building on lessons learned from pandemic response efforts. Through this initiative, we are convening a series of international roundtable discussions with global leaders from across the public, private, academic, and non-profit sectors to capture lessons across six key domain areas: Emergency Preparedness and Response, Cybersecurity, Supply Chain, Sustainability, Workforce Skills, and International Cooperation.
