1:00 Start-Up Success Stories: From Organizational Models To Rollout Strategies

Initiating a strict commitment to a high-performance government operation can be intimidating, even with the recognized positive outcomes; however, when designing your organizational framework, an educated decision on which model and rollout strategy is right for you is the key to success. What types of models have worked well in the public sector already, and who is currently using them? What did these organizations take into account when establishing an agenda for a smooth rollout? This presentation will provide specific examples and answer the fundamental questions that go into deciding on an organizational model and learning how to effectively put it into action. In this session, you will learn about the following:

  • The difference between various performance-driven approaches, from decentralized to centralized, to help you decide on an organizational model that works for you
  • Types of organizational models and successful examples of each in the public sector
  • Specific variables that need to be accounted for when deciding on an appropriate rollout strategy—one that will lead to sustainability and allow opportunity for growth
  • Options for rollout strategies and who has used them
