Introducing
Government Entrepreneur

A training program that embodies the core competencies of OPM’s Executive Core Qualification #5: Building Coalitions, and teaches government employees how to build partnerships, deepen customer relationships, and create compelling stories so they can lead their organizations to success.

Why public sector employees need new tools

Leaders of government agencies are under increasing pressure to produce more results with fewer resources. There is less tolerance on the part of Congress and the public for government inefficiency, stove-piping, and duplication of capabilities. At the same time, government agencies are responding by building coalitions internally and across agencies, including putting in place interagency and public-private partnerships to address large-scale challenges. Collaboration is on the increase – and so is competition. Almost every government agency has created a reimbursable funding model for sharing specific capabilities with other agencies.

This environment places new demands on government leaders and employees. Employees now need entrepreneurial skill and judgment, and the know-how to position their organization for future success. To be sure, entrepreneurship looks very different in the public sector than in the private sector. While some successful government employees are “born” entrepreneurs, more often people become successful entrepreneurs through training and experience.

The Government Entrepreneur helps public sector professionals develop the entrepreneurial skills and judgment appropriate for use in the government sector – identifying new opportunities, deepening customer relationships, calculating risk, creating a narrative, and closing the deal.
