“This is the way that it’s always been done” is a symptom of a disease that’s all too common in government agencies. When this rot sets in, it’s time for bold new thinking and disruptive change. A government agency’s culture can hold down the best ideas that emerge from the people who know the problems best.
Centrally-managed systems for goal setting and reporting can be the most demotivating thing for line agencies when they want to focus on what’s really important. Too often, middle management are seeking to reverse-engineer activities to suit the reporting framework instead of using logic and energy to solve problems.
Engage in the relentless pursuit of better.
Middle management in government agencies attempting to hire and retain the best staff are too often stymied by systems and cultures that work strongly against them.
