Research Reports

The Center has commissioned over 200 reports that focus on major issues facing all governments today. Our authors are leading public management researchers in the academic and non-profit communities.

The Business of Government Hour

Every week the Center interviews leaders who are changing the way government does business. Over 275 government executives have been interviewed about their careers, agency accomplishments and management, and the future of government in the 21st century.

The Business of Government Magazine

Published twice a year, the Business of Government magazine offers leadership profiles and fresh perspectives on government today.

Blogs

The Business of Government – A range of voices from the Center, academe, and IBM business practitioners examine issues facing public managers as they work to accomplish their missions. The blog looks at the evolution of the Obama administration’s new transparency initiatives and the challenges of performance and collaboration in the workplace.

Strategies to Cut Costs and Improve Performance – A variety of bloggers within IBM will provide specific strategies that federal agencies can undertake to achieve savings in operational functions. A brief description of each cost-saving strategy will be presented along with other helpful references such as case studies (in both the government and private sector), articles, and other web resources.

Implementing Health Care Reform – Don Kettl, Dean of the School of Public Policy at the University of Maryland, helps to answer the question, now that national health reform has been enacted, how are we going to make this work? Through this blog, Kettl and featured guests will discuss emerging challenges such as enrolling some 16 million new Medicaid and SCHIP applicants, establishing state insurance exchanges, and finding enough doctors and nurses to meet the needs of a growing aging population.

Implementation of the Recovery Act for State and Local Government, Cost Cutting, Education, and Performance – Katherine Barrett and Richard Greene began writing for the IBM Center for The Business of Government on their blog covering the Implementation of the Recovery Act. Their first post was in March 2010 and the last of their almost 200 posts appeared in December 2010. Barrett and Greene now write about Performance and Cost Cutting measures in a column on our website. View their previous blog posts and columns.

Books

Our books explore new approaches to improving the effectiveness of government at the federal, state, and local levels. They provide cutting-edge knowledge to government leaders, academics, and students about the management of government in the 21st century.
