McKinsey Anthology on Redesigning Government
October 15, 2012

The McKinsey Center for Government just released an impressive
anthology of 30 “political leaders and civil servants, economists and
policy experts, generalists and specialists”  on how governments
worldwide are addressing common problems using newly designed
approaches.  The anthology, entitled “Government designed for new
times” is structured along 4 themes:
* Transforming Government;
* Innovating Government Services;
* Building New Competencies;  and
* Understanding Government in New Times.

In an accompanying video, Diana Farrell, along with other McKinsey
directors, explain the imperatives behind the anthology:
“There is so much that can be done improving government itself—the
effectiveness of government, the operations of government. In many
economies in the OECD, government is 40 percent of GDP if we include
transfers and subsidies. Just improving the effectiveness, the
productivity, of that part of the economy, itself can be a major
contributor to growth and to prosperity.”
