Brian Murrow, an expert on strategy and analytics at IBM, participated in interviews conducted by the Partnership for Public Service as they prepared a series of podcast conversations with pioneers in the use of analytics in the federal government. In a series of guest blog posts over the next few weeks, Brian will share his key takeaways from these interviews.

I hope you learn from and enjoy these podcasts and Brian’s perspectives from the in-person interviews. We would also like to learn your thoughts and experiences with analytics programs in your agency.
