Featured content

  • Technology trends 2013: A Public Sector perspective
    This year's theme, Elements of postdigital, examines the continuing maturation of five forces: social, mobile, cloud, analytics, and cyber.
  • Rethinking red tape: Influencing behaviors to achieve public outcomes
    Behavioral approaches have been used successfully in a number of private and public sector organizations to influence citizens to make better choices.
  • Gov on the go: Boosting public sector productivity by going mobile
    This publication illustrates the potential value that mobile can generate for government, and examines the key areas where mobile acts as an enabler of productivity for the public sector.
  • Networked medical device cybersecurity and patient safety
    Deloitte interviewed Medical Device Security Leaders (MDSLs) from nine health care organizations as part of a study on patient safety issues related to medical device security. The results show agreement among respondents about specific privacy and cybersecurity issues, organizational differences in preparedness levels and approaches and many shared opinions about future developments needed to support the industry.
  • Demand management in local government
    This publication examines how demand management can operate in social care, education, waste management and highways maintenance. Chief executives and finance directors tell us where it has worked and where there are limitations.
  • Working differently to provide early diagnosis
    The report focuses on healthcare services in England, with specific attention on the vitro diagnostic and imaging market. The report's conclusions are predicated on three key themes: The need to improve access to early diagnosis in the face of rising demand and limited funding growth; the organisational, financial, operational and cultural obstacles preventing early access to diagnostics; how working differently could help.
  • Global mobility management
    Globalization is prompting companies to consider more international assignments than ever before. Unfortunately, many companies rely on outdated workforce mobility programs, resulting in elaborate and expensive expatriate packages.
  • Cybersecurity workforce planning
    The number and scale of cyber intrusions and attacks have increased exponentially in recent years, exposing vulnerabilities and weaknesses within federal agencies and commercial organizations alike. Increases in technology, data, and access to information all require complex problem-solving skills. Therefore, effectively managing cybersecurity in the public sector has become ever more challenging in today’s evolving global environment.
  • Radical cost reduction
    One of the most important issues facing major U.S. hospitals and health systems is the perceived need for Radical Cost Reduction (RCR) – estimated at 20-30% of total cost structure by 2015 – in response to health reform. How can organizations achieve RCR over the next 3-5 years and find the transformative opportunities needed to thrive in a lean, post-reform environment?
  • What reorganization can do for Federal agencies
    The report assesses the perceptions and experiences of federal employees regarding potential department, agency, and program-level reorganizations and consolidations. The study is based on focus group and survey data collected from senior-level federal employees. The research shows that many agencies lack the resources and skills required for effective reorganization.
  • Government meets its mobile future
    Mobile technology is changing society and promises to keep evolving for years to come. People expect immediate service and instant information. Now that smartphones, tablets, and mobile technologies have been ingrained in our everyday lives, state governments face a moment of truth.
  • GovCloud -The future of government work
    The workforce is changing, but don’t just take our word for it! These millennial’s discuss the future of government work – GovCloud.
  • Transforming the Public Sector using geospatial insight
    Analyzing data from a geographical perspective can help organizations paint a more detailed picture of the issues and events that affect public service delivery. Connecting seemingly disparate data points by referencing their location can reveal the relationship between public services, businesses and citizens.
  • Solving complex societal issues through Social Impact Bonds
    Similar to the pay-for-success bond in the United States, the Social Impact Bond offers an innovative way to address many related challenges. Focused on outcomes, the Social Impact Bond enables the government to pay only if an initiative is successful, incentivize innovation, and allows service delivery providers to be commissioned as a group.
  • Partnerships for the future: Redefine public/private cooperation
    While public-private partnerships have occurred in the US for at least 200 years, they have primarily involved large infrastructure projects with formal contractual agreements. But the increasingly complex nature of our national challenges are creating incentives for government and business to collaborate more frequently and in new ways that go well beyond traditional infrastructure investments, expanding the definition of partnerships in the future.
