Our federal government faces unprecedented management challenges in the 21st century. Integral to its success in effectively serving the American people are its Chief Acquisition Officers, Chief Financial Officers, Chief Human Capital Officers and Chief Information Officers.
The Partnership for Public Service’s Strategic Advisors to Government Executives (SAGE) program connects these senior-level executives in government with their predecessors who are now in the private sector, providing them an opportunity to leverage prior public sector experience to transform government and improve its performance. The SAGE program is currently comprised of the following communities:
With their extensive experience, SAGEs guide senior-level executives in government through the complex environment of the federal workforce, including the various political, management, legal and fiduciary demands of their position. SAGEs share knowledge, ideas and best practices to help these federal executives accelerate their ability to carry out the required responsibilities, contributing to more efficient and effective government leadership. These officials are granted access to a unique network of subject matter experts who want to give back to government and continue their involvement in public service.
SAGEs engage their public sector counterparts through Workshops, thought leadership sessions, expert Roundtables, and two-day orientation Boot Camps. In addition, each SAGE community produces a Roadmap relevant to its specific discipline. The Federal CAO, CFO and CIO Roadmaps provide high-level views of the fiduciary and other responsibilities of the positions and include guidance on the traits of an effective federal executive.
The Partnership for Public Service is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that works to revitalize our federal government by inspiring a new generation to serve and by transforming the way government works.
