Enhancing the Government’s Decision-Making

Incoming leaders in the White House and across federal agencies will be flooded with information, advice and suggestions for new programs and priorities. They will face an urgency to act, especially on presidential priorities and budget choices. Unrelenting demands will arise around important day-to-day decisions on personnel actions, contracting, grants and regulatory issues.

In January 2017, the next administration will begin the hard work of implementing the President’s priorities. Regardless of the specific policies, implementation in many cases will require working across agency boundaries. By taking an “enterprise government” approach – starting in the transition and continuing into the White House – the next administration can deliver on their promises more effectively.
