Effective Government Coalition


August 2016

Effective Government Coalition – Exploratory Phase

The Effective Government Coalition (EGC) announces its non-partisan mission to create an efficient and streamlined government that lives up to the same operations standards, efficiency, and integrity that the American people have come to expect and require from public companies and businesses that affect their everyday lives from the 21st Century.

The Effective Government Coalition is comprised of some of the nation’s top experts in business process improvement and operations management including Lean Six Sigma experts, CEOs, COOs and process and systems experts from all political backgrounds. The Coalition is comprised of people of all generations from baby-boomers to the recently designated largest generation in America; the 75+ million strong millennials.

Creating an effective and efficient government in which Americans have faith is vital to the future sustainability of American democracy, opportunity and prosperity. Currently, faith in government is at an all-time low due to the continued mismanagement of funds, programs and more. This is because many government officials are forced to manage bad processes.

The Coalition is recruiting all Americans who wish to reshape the Federal Government in a way that allows every tax dollar to be spent creating positive value for tax payers by identifying and eliminating waste, redundancies, fraud, and abuse in all federally controlled programs, systems, and processes. To do this, the Coalition will promote the use of strategically-driven performance improvement capabilities across the entire Federal Government to increase efficiency and effectiveness.

Annual waste estimates from all government and government-affiliated entities range from $200 billion to $1 trillion with a 10-year savings in the trillions.

Imagine all the ways that this money could be put to more effective use.

A focused top-down driven effort will reorient government to provide effective services, reduce the cost of government, grow our economy, accelerate job creation, restore faith and trust and keep America on top of the world economy. Most importantly, this effort will drive a reduction in the national debt; a debt that is being passed down to future generations.

The Coalition will build public support for its mission and present government officials with ideas and research on concrete steps on how to move towards an effective and more efficient government that is expected of America in the 21st century.

The Coalition will work towards its goals by utilizing the collective resources of the members, their firms and their experience in the private, public and political sectors.

Rapid Crisis Intervention/Facilitation Method


Organizations around the globe face critical instances that need a clear and consistent approach to resolving issues in a way that not only fixes a problem in the short term but also helps to ensure that the issue does not happen again.  Too many times organizations make knee jerk reactions to stop the bleeding and resolve immediate problems however, there is  no true resolution to make sure that the problem does not occur again.  Often times, these organizations face a make or break situation in terms of public perception as well as operational capabilities standpoints.  These situations demand rapid and corrective actions in mid-stream, without the luxury of re-starting operations from square one.  In most situations, there is time to right the ship and provide the necessary practical and technical leadership that is required to fix the current problems and to communicate a concrete plan and corrective solution to the organizations stakeholders.

Based on Crisis Intervention experience for organizations across the globe,  the following approach to standing up a Crisis Intervention Management (CIM) PMO has been established.  The goal of the CIM PMO is to coordinate, facilitate, and be a management tool for allowing organizational leads to direct and integrate resources allowing them to navigate the correct path within a defined period of time.

The Crisis Intervention Management (CIM) PMO is a well-defined and replicable methodology that is used to assist organizations in tracking, managing, coordinating, and communicating the successful remediation of the issues with systems that are in a rapid remediation mode.

Crisis Intevention Model

The Crisis Intervention Model above does not in itself contain the final solution to the specific problems that plague organizations/programs in crisis.  That is the function of the leadership, program, and technical resources that are tasked for this purpose.  Rather, the CIM is a defined methodology to help ensure that a rapid but replicable intervention process is followed and that the issues are identified and the solutions are implemented in a timely manner by the individuals with the required expertise.

From Kick-Off to Execution, the CIM Model envisions a six week project followed by the Delivery of the Solution.  The Kick-Off is used to establish the ground rules for interaction and to allow everyone to understand the role of the CIM PMO and how all of the stakeholders will work within this structure.  The Gap Analysis is done in a two day workshop format that will allow the Organization to identify their vision of the problem and their requirements, the current staff/vendors to present the current problems and the proposed solutions, and selected Industry thought leaders to evaluate the issues and identify gaps and propose innovative solutions.  The Solutions Definition workshop is an addition two day workshop that will include some of the key personnel from the previous meetings and builds upon the Gap Analysis by including additional Subject Matter Experts that may be necessary to build a solution.  The outcome of this meeting will be the roadmap by which the solution will be executed.  Project Planning is the concrete schedule of implementation events that will be conducted as a means to deliver a fully functional Solution.  Execution is the work that will be done by the incumbent team, coordinated by the CIM PMO, with oversight from the organizational Lead.  Finally, Solution Delivery is the rollout of the new fixes in a seamless and effective way so that stakeholders have fully functioning and user friendly solution to the problem.

During a period of crisis, organizations a facing a very difficult time and that there are many ideas and proposals being provided to fix the problems facing the organization.  CIM is not a  solution, it is an organized and efficient way to screen solutions and implement them in a clear and well-structured process.  Even in the toughest of environments, properly trained and experienced Crisis Intervention Subject Matter Experts are able to drive even the most difficult of organizations to the execution phase within six weeks.  A standard timeline is included below.

Outcomes of a Structured Crisis Intervention Management Methodology include,  stand up the CIM PMO, facilitation of a Kick-Off meeting, Gap Analysis, and Solutions Definition, as well as providing the organization with a detailed Project Plan,
Daily Updates, Weekly Status Reports, Strategic Talking Points, and a final debrief.  Additionally, it is necessary for the CIM PMO to work with the Organization leads to drive the successful implementation of the Solution Delivery team, providing the necessary personnel and bandwidth to provide the oversight necessary to resolve a very serious issue at a very delicate time.
