Government Performance Consortium

In April 2015, MRSC, with the support of the State Auditor's Office's Local Government Performance Center, launched the Government Performance Consortium.

The purpose of our consortium is to inspire creativity and build capacity by sharing insights and successes, as well as grappling with current and future challenges and continuously seeking solutions among emergent leading practices and examples from multiple management disciplines.

Among the practices we believe to be important components of this framework are:

  1. A compelling shared vision, based on community values and a well-defined mission.
  2. Strategic alignment of business operational goals and investments.
  3. Clarity of focus on customer needs and creating public value.
  4. An inspired workplace culture of curiosity, creativity, and learning that fosters healthy human dynamics.
  5. Responsive managers and leaders capable of holding the truth and measuring our results.
  6. A disciplined approach to systems thinking and continuous improvement
  7. Creative forms of communication and alliances that engage citizens, and transcend traditional boundaries between public, nonprofit and private sectors.

We envision a vital and active “community of practice,” an engaged and committed group of leaders supporting one another to push the boundaries of excellence and create a space where other government leaders can explore, learn and adapt today’s leading practices to create entirely new forms of government designed for a vibrant and dynamic future.
