Government Performance Summit 2013 (GPS) brought together industry leaders and innovators in the field of performance management and government performance. Attendees participated in lively discussions and gained hands-on experience applicable to any government organization. The 2-day event covered many different fields and methodologies used to improve or review performance results. During the event, participants were challenged to get involved in the Data Science Challenge.
Keynote speaker Kevin Donahue, Executive Director of The Performance Improvement Council (PIC) lead an interactive session, which encouraged attendees to participate in a survey. The findings will be compiled into a report intended to assess the effects of GPRA Modernization Act. Data-Driven Government became the focus of much scrutiny and debate during the event. Speakers positioned themselves for data or art. Featured speaker, Dr. Robert Behn, Lecturer at Harvard University discussed PerformanceStat as a leadership strategy. This would combine data and experience to drive increased results.
