Our Latest Thinking in Public Sector

The impact of today’s rapidly changing economic and technological landscape—combined with the long-term implications of an aging population, climate change, and globalization—affects everything from how education and health care systems need to evolve to how governments are funded. Not only will the public sector have to play a big role in helping citizens and institutions adapt, but it will also need to look at how governments of the future need to be structured to deliver to citizens.

Towards A Broader View of National Performance

There’s a fundamental societal shift underway—and many governments are missing it. National decision makers and government leaders are still mainly relying on the product equivalent to assess policy performance, failing to consider the equivalent of consumer experience--the well-being of citizens.
