Some New Transition Resources


I’ve attended a couple conferences in the past week that focused on Web 2.0 possibilities for the next Administration. The
Government Leadership Summit
showcased several disruptive technologies that will likely be in place in the course of the next Administration. Chris Dorobek with Federal Computer Week did a great summary of its highlights on his blog.

The “Future of Collaborative Government,” co-sponsored by the National Academy for Public Administration and Deloitte Research, showcased cutting edge practitioners in Web 2.0 technologies in government and how they could be leveraged in the next Administration. The participants (and you) have been invited to participate in ”The Collaboration Project.”

In addition, Federal News Radio has launched a “Tracking the Transition” webpage. This might be worth bookmarking.

Also, Government Executive has created a “Presidential Transition” webpage as well. Again, worth bookmarking. This site links to a December 2007 Congressional Research Service report on presidential transition that provides useful background.

The IBM Center also has a Presidential Transition webpage that will be expanded over time. In addition to this blog, it has a page devoted to potential policy/management issues the next Administration may face. These include issue papers and reports on using open source intelligence, using Lean Six Sigma, reforming the budget process for Homeland Security, and others. Down the road, the site will include guides for operating agencies and advice from practitioners on getting things done in government.

Are there other resources you’d recommend adding to this list?
