Government Sector

Sector Challenges We Solve

Like other organizations, government agencies operate in an increasingly fast-paced, complex, and interconnected world. On top of this, they must also deliver on their missions while operating under additional constraints and limitations. In particular, governmental organizations can only thrive by successfully navigating three major challenges:

Doing More with Less

Budgetary restrictions have become a fact of life in recent years, even as mission scope expands for many governmental organizations.


Dealing with Ambiguity

An uncertain fiscal climate and changing senior leadership mean governmental employees at all levels must find ways to operate effectively in an environment of uncertainty and shifting priorities.


Operating Under Intense Scrutiny

With increasing public awareness and attention fostered by the ease of information flow in today’s world, governmental agencies must create cultures of trust while operating with unprecedented transparency.


These challenges lead to symptoms such as employee burnout, high turnover, poor team cohesion, lack of cross-functional collaboration, and low scores on employee surveys such as the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) and Command Climate Surveys.

In this context, developing a trust-based, cohesive, adaptive, and collaborative culture will allow governmental agencies to not just survive, but thrive.
