06-01 Extreme Government Makeover: Increasing Your Capacity To Do More Good  (AGAL/CLE/FSD/FF)
Room:
Grand Ballroom
Presenter: Ken Miller author of We don’t make Widgets
Overview: Exponential increases in demand for desperately needed benefits. Dramatically reduced resources. Higher expectations from citizens. Government is under incredible pressure right now, and it simply doesn’t have the capacity to do all the good that we – as public servants – want to do.

Although admirable, government leaders continue to roll out a new take on an old solution – technology, accountability, and fear – in an effort to try to meet the overwhelming demands, only to be disappointed with the results. They are trying to do the right things, but are tackling the wrong problem. During this presentation, Ken will uncover the underlying – yet overlooked – problems that are plaguing government and point out where the real opportunities are to fix it.

Based on three principles – the work of government is noble, the people of government are amazing, but the systems of government are a mess – Ken, in his straight-forward and engaging manner, will share simple ways that leaders can tear down all the twisted, broken parts of government and rebuild it stronger and better equipped to help citizens in need.

During this presentation you will learn:

  • How government can perform its vital functions 80% faster at less cost with better quality
  • Where the hidden costs of government are
  • The DNA of government complexity and how we can genetically modify it
  • The secret to true accountability
  • Why technology is not the answer

Ken will also demonstrate how agencies from across the country that are responsible for delivering human services have doubled capacity, reduced wait times, increased child support collections, and eliminated their backlogs with no new staff.

Most importantly, you will be challenged to look at the work of government differently in order to fix what’s wrong and do more of what’s right.
