Welcome to the Government Community of Practice!
The January 2017 issue of The Public Manager is now available! The cover piece for this month's issue is a timely interview with Dr. Martha Joynt Kumar, director of the White House Transition Project, and it is all about communication and collaboration during the transition to a new presidential administration.
Other articles in this issue examine how government can balance the drive for innovative thinking with preserving a level playing field in acquisition, how to make a good first impression, and the efforts agencies are making to improve hiring and retention of people with disabilities. I hope you find this content valuable in your efforts to improve your workplace.
