May 31 2017 - Trump Presidency

Prior presidents haven't done this well, and Trump is doing worse than they did.feedback

May 10 2017

It seems like such a straightforward proposition for the federal government to recognize its employees. No organization is healthy if it doesn't show its appreciation for its employees' good work. Yet less than half of our government's workers say that federal employees are recognized for doing a good job. They deserve our recognition, and to know that their work and their dedicated service garners our appreciation and respect.feedback

I do not think President Trump's delay in filling critical leadership jobs across the government is deliberate. This represents an example of the president's unfamiliarity with the governmental process and lapses during the transition. At the same time, I believe you can run the government with fewer political appointees, but to do that, you must be strategic and understand which jobs have merit and which ones are unnecessary.feedback

Apr 26 2017

Career executives who serve in an acting capacity when a political appointee has not been nominated by the president or confirmed by the Senate are akin to substitute teachers. They may have deep experience, but they are not perceived as having real authority and are unlikely to make key decisions or take on long-term challenges, because of the temporary nature of their positions.feedback

Apr 25 2017

Apr 17 2017 - Trump Presidency

The types of changes that need to take place in the government aren't ones that get done with the stroke of the pen. They're the proverbial long march. So the idea that the Trump team has begun within its first 100 days a serious reform effort I think is really important, because they have a better opportunity to actually see something through. The clock is not their friend.feedback

Apr 17 2017

They certainly don't have longterm tenure, and as a result, they themselves typically don't take on the hard challenges or view the choices that they're making from that longterm lens. And the people around them understand that any choice they make may be changed by the full-time leadership as it comes in.feedback

Apr 13 2017

No prior administration has done well at this. But Trump is even further behind.feedback

Apr 10 2017

Uncertainty is the most corrosive of all in terms of diminishing, you know, capability. And this is true right now with respect to budget, it's true with respect to the hiring freeze …. those are not the effective ways to get best value for the American people, in my view.feedback

Apr 04 2017

The operation went forward, but it wasn't connected to the decision-makers.feedback

Mar 29 2017

Most presidents focus attention on policy and often fail to understand that won't mean much if you can't make it operational.feedback

Mar 29 2017

It takes a long time to really improve government, there aren't quick fixes, so you have to start right away. It's also important that you have buy-in from the highest levels of government.feedback

Mar 20 2017

Right out of the gate, President Trump has called for a rethink of the way government functions.feedback

Mar 16 2017

Yes, there's not a whole ton of detail here, but we're seven weeks into the administration. This is actually something Obama started focusing on, but it's by no means done. But they're not there yet. That presents a real issue.feedback

Mar 16 2017

The approach that the president took as a businessman and a candidate is simply not scalable to the challenge of filling out the rest of the government leadership.feedback

Feb 09 2017

It's not as if the government stops because these appointees are not in place. There are acting people in these jobs. But they're acting. They don't have the imprimatur of the president. They're not thinking about the long-term.feedback

Dec 22 2016

I do think there is a difference between addressing internal issues and presenting our views to the larger world.feedback

Nov 09 2016
