How to Govern for Results in the Information Age
Governor Martin O’Malley knows how to take action in the face of daunting challenges.
Under his leadership, Baltimore and the state of Maryland experienced unprecedented changes, like the largest ten-year reduction of crime of any major city in the country and achieving the number one public school system in America five years in a row.
Through stories and real-life struggles, the former Maryland Governor provides engaging insight into how data-driven decision making and collaboration can change the future of America, from the ground up. He provides tangible steps that companies can take to create an entrepreneurial and accountable internal atmosphere by investing in artificial intelligence, committing to transparency, measuring performance, and setting public deadlines.
As a futurist, his in-depth knowledge of how technological advances and artificial intelligence are forever altering the way that leaders govern and embrace challenges makes him a unique speaker for the leaders of tomorrow.
Backed by his new book, Smarter Government: Governing for Results in the Information Age, Governor O’Malley explains how data-driven decision making and leadership can be combined for life-saving and life-giving results.
He issues a clarion call for a renewal of faith in our own democracy, in a time of diminished trust. “What our democracy needs is not new technologies, but new social-technical habits — habits of leadership, habits of management, and habits of the heart,” he says.
Drawing from the creation and use of CitiStat, a revolutionary program he implemented as Mayor of Baltimore and Governor of Maryland, Governor O’Malley details how this new way of data-driven governing improves effectiveness and efficiency at every level, while also improving the quality of life shared by all.
