Current budget constraints in the public sector require an innovative response from legislators, public administrators and government employees. Legislators must set the course with directive statutory specific policy, administrators must develop the management plan to carry out those mandates and government employees must remain flexible and committed to the personal transformation required to do public business in a new leaner way. Bob Dylan said it right…the times they are a changing. Citizens are demanding ethical and responsible government.
Many states are transforming to a lean culture including: Iowa, Minnesota and Florida.
