  4. 4. 2020: Imagine……there’s no congestion, it’s easy if you drive.
  5. 5. Imagine: Mobile Government •  Boomers: (semi-)retired, working from anywhere. •  Gen X/Y: Flexibility, work-life balance. •  Everyone: Connected, productive, contributing.
  6. 6. Loathing the RealityTitle: “City, crowded office space” | Date: September 19, 1955
  7. 7. Living the Dream?
  8. 8. Two Tech IdeasBYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Ustream Your Teleworkers* *(Seriously, Don’t Do This)
  9. 9. 2020: Imagine……there’s no GS-7 no step bestowed us,above us only…sky high,performance-based pay?
  10. 10. Imagine: Measurable Government •  Figure out what needs to be done and by when. •  Forget about how it gets done and where it happens. •  Reward real performance. •  Remove problem people faster (and without regret).
  11. 11. Loathing the RealityOnly 737 out of more than 1.2 million GSemployees… were denied a regularly-scheduled step increaseand accompanying raise in 2009 because of poor performance,according to data provided by the Office of Personnel Managementat Federal Times request.That equates to a 0.06 percent denial rate…which is far lower than any estimates of the number of poor performers in the workforce. ~ “Step increases threatened” | Stephen Losey | April 3, 2011

  13. 13. A Touchy Tech Idea 360 Reviews for Everyone?
  14. 14. 2020: Imagine… …there’s no agencies . . . (Okay, that may be a stretch.)
  15. 15. Imagine: Modular Government “Tiger Teams” tackle the toughest projects quickly. Rotational assignments among agencies (not just PMFs). Expert clearinghouse with “best of best” on the ready.
  16. 16. Loathing the RealityThrough sheer luck and the brave actions of passengers, the U.S. narrowly averted aterrorist attack on Christmas Day 2009. In President Obamas words, the U.S.government failed to connect the dots in its pursuit of Umar FaroukAbdulmutullab, and he nearly brought down Northwest Flight 253 as a result.The problem was not a lack of information. It was an inability to stitchintelligence together into a coherent pattern. More than eight years after the September11 attacks, it exposed systemic weaknesses that still plague the federal governmentsefforts to track and stop terrorists. The problem is a persistent one: aninability to cross organizational boundaries. “Cross-silo communication: All talk and no action?” Bill Adams, February 18, 2010
  17. 17. Laying Out the Dream “With cloud computing: Organizations increase their flexibility by sharing storage space, information, and resources in a cloud’ allowing them to quickly scale resources up and down, as needed. Why not apply the cloud model to people?”
  18. 18. Laying Out the Dream “…A government-wide human cloud enables: •  Ability to apply resources nimbly; •  Increased knowledge flow across agencies, focus on government-wide missions; and •  Fewer structures that stifle creativity and halt adoption of new tech/innovation. Fed Cloud = workers performing creative, problem-focused work, not just in single agency, but government-wide. us_fed_The_Future_of_Federal_Work_092011.pdf
  19. 19. Living the Dream:
  20. 20. 2020: Imagine… “…You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope some day you’ll join us ...” Andrew Krzmarzick @krazykriz
