This year, we would like to share a preview of what you will experience in the session If the U.S. Census Bureau's Economic Programs Directorate Can Transform, So Can You!
TRANSFORMING THE ECONOMIC PROGRAMS DIRECTORATE
U.S. Census Bureau
The Journey to Date
By: Marian Moriarty and Joe Jockel
What you will get out of the session:
The Economic Programs Directorate from the U.S. Census Bureau has pulled off the biggest and most complex change effort in the Bureau's history. This 1400-person organization of economists and statisticians designed and implemented a new matrix-based structure and laid the foundation for major process improvements and cost reductions. How? Our session will explain. Joined by the leader of this organization, client Bill Bostic, we will use exercises to place participants into the shoes of the organization's executives and its two external consultants and ask them the question What would you do? Bill will then describe what he and his organization actually did after each exercise.
