Mission Modernization

Mission modernization is about instituting a culture of continuous change in government, not about a "big bang" moment. Leaders who focus on growing, and preserving, a culture of modernization will ensure there is capacity for sustainable and repeatable change. Creating this impact requires building coalitions, not just within organizations but across the agency. A focus on creating shared goals and language around modernization goes a long way toward aligning the right people. Attend this workshop to learn and share techniques for design thinking that can synch up your organizations and accelerate the transformation of your teams and technologies.

Learning Objectives: Techniques for design thinking and getting folks on the same page. Awareness that transformation is a team sport. Tools for mission success. Ideas for implementation of the 21st Century IDEAct. 

  • Learn how to use design thinking techniques
  • Think through common issues associated with implementation of the 21st Century IDEAct.
  • Share best practices in bringing together siloed parts of organizations to build strong coalitions
