Technology Leadership

Panel Chair: Alan Shark

Technology unto itself is but a set of tools that requires a high level of understanding and leadership that can no longer be delegated to a single person, support agency or department. Every day public administrators struggle to navigate the ever-changing landscape, trying to keep current with the latest trends and best practices.

This forum is designed to scan all levels of government for the latest trends in technology and governance as well as focusing on best practices aimed at improving executive level capacity, governance, and to seek ways to assess the value of technology systems from a public management executive perspective.

The proposed group’s unique mission is to pursue technology initiatives designed to make government function better. Similar to the current Standing Panels, this proposed new group will live up to the National Academy’s Congressional Charter by helping Academy member stay better informed about current trends and governance developments as well as  proposing new polices, models and courses of action to improve performance in all levels of public management.

From time to time, the Panel members invite non-Fellows to join as associate members. These individuals are invited to provide specific expertise to the Panel.
