A Nation in Transition
Deloitte Dialogues tackle the tough issues facing the Obama administration
The U.S. federal government faces a series of extraordinary challenges. As the Government Accountability Office (GAO) reported in 21st Century Challenges, national security issues, the aging population, mounting fiscal pressures, and a host of other issues, require wholesale review of industrial-era policies and programs.
With a new administration in office, now is the time to start tackling these challenges and putting forward thoughtful solutions and implementation plans.
Toward this end, Deloitte’s Public Leadership Institute hosted a series of dialogues in late 2008 that convened a well-balanced mix of Beltway opinion leaders, senior government and business executives and subject matter experts to candidly discuss several of the top policy and management challenges GAO has identified. Our goal was to develop a roadmap to help guide the new administration in tackling some of the critical challenges of the 21st century.
