Freeze Frame

July 15, 2005 Capturing the character of the kinetic Tom Davis. Sometimes a photographer neatly captures the character of his subject, as James Kegley has done for us with his cover image and inside-the-book pictures of Congressman Tom Davis, R-Va. The tousled hair, the rumpled shirt, the quizzical but determined look-all bespeak the...

Business: Help Wanted

July 1, 2005 It's time for corporate leaders to get off the sidelines on important public problems. In late May, the media reported that prominent business groups were joining in serious discussions aimed at addressing our country's huge health insurance gap. This came as welcome news, because it hinted that American business leaders...

Labor’s Pain

June 15, 2005 Unions have been staggered by many blows. If George W. Bush is a "union buster," as we assert on our cover this month, then he follows in the footsteps of many business leaders, and many Republican politicians, who have fought the labor movement over the course of generations. Campaigns against...

Epistemological Puzzle

June 1, 2005 Business intelligence helps agencies solve the performance conundrum. People in government with responsibility for major programs live with an "epistemological conundrum," declared the Coast Guard's Rear Adm. Patrick Stillman in a memorable tongue-twister connoting both the necessity and the difficulty of getting the right information to measure performance. Epistemology, says...

Outside Line

May 15, 2005 Should government be putting sensitive calls in the hands of contractors? When the telephone rang last month, I picked up to find a gentleman wondering whether I would answer some questions about a friend of mine who's in line to be nominated for an ambassadorial post. I asked for evidence...

Staying the Course

May 1, 2005 Gale Norton's long march toward better results at Interior In the mind's eye, the Interior Department conjures up images of vast open spaces, of scenery as spectacular as the nation can offer. What fun, one thinks, to be at the head of such an enterprise, in charge of such beautiful...

Building Community

April 15, 2005 That's an important goal in the magazine trade. Experts who study the magazine trade say it's all about building community, and that to accomplish the task, we must reach out to people in print, in person and online. Government Executive got started in the print business. Today, the magazine circulates...

Maybe Less Is More

April 1, 2005 The goals of shrinking government and recruiting talent can be compatible. For a dozen years, our political leadership has been on a mission to shrink the federal bureaucracy. The most significant, though unheralded, consequence of the Clinton-Gore "reinventing government" drive was to cut the civil service head count by 426,000...

Flexing Human Capital

March 15, 2005 Do the government's 'chiefs' have enough pull to change entire bureaucracies? With the announcement in mid-February that veteran diplomat John D. Negroponte would be nominated as the first director of national intelligence, the question was raised anew as to whether he could accrue the powers the position is supposed to...

Leaders in Government

March 1, 2005 Career officials lead the way to better government, today and tomorrow. Back-to-back assignments as discussion leader on Fat Tuesday and Ash Wednesday gave me a chance in February to explore the sorry state of the federal budget and the ways senior people in the executive branch might usefully respond. On...
