Accountability for Results
Results matter to Congress, the administration and the American public. The ability to demonstrate positive outcomes — and make government work more effectively — helps your agency build trust and secure resources.
“Challenges to accountability include a lack of public trust, inconsistent or uncertain resources, and perceived bureaucratic incompetence. These challenges affect public servants’ ability to achieve positive outcomes for their agencies and the American people, which is why we address them in this class.” – G.
