What It Takes to Support Data and Tech Capacity in Government Transitions
Transitions are a way of life in government — whether it’s shifts in agency strategies, new leadership, or a change in administration, government folks are some of the most resilient and flexible there are because the only constant is change. In our work, we support governments as they use cutting-edge tools and practices to deliver services and carry out their missions — work that should continue amid transitions. In this conversation, we discuss strategies and approaches that government workers can take to ensure our important work to use data, design, technology, and other modern tools and practices continue to advance year over year. We will also briefly discuss some of the important questions that teams that plan administration transitions should be asking when thinking about capacity within agencies.
