FCW : March 15, 2013
32 March 15, 2013 FCW.COM Bookshelf want to have politicals in operational jobs as you get started, but at some point you will want to move careerists into those jobs for your legacy s sake. Keep political appointees-only meetings rare and reserve them for political matters Your effectiveness in getting your agency to do what you want it to do will depend on your ability to build an effective joint political/career team. Your staff meet- ings should be joint, as should most of the meetings involving the management of your agency. Nonetheless, you will nd that you occasionally need to meet separately with your political staff on political issues. Such meetings might cover political strategy or campaigns. These are necessary, and the careerists should not be there. However, you will have more success running your agency if the two commu- nities regularly work together in policy development and implementation. Put it all together, decide whom to depend on and for what Step one in harnessing the power of the career bureaucracy is guring out whom to listen to and on what. But that is only step one. The more critical step is guring out whom to depend on and for what. This applies to both the career and political sides of your organization. You will nd most of your career staff to have the right combination of knowledge and inclination to support your agenda. Some may not be in the best positions to exploit the full force of their talents and need to move to new positions. Others may not be a good t for what you want to accomplish and need to move as well. Your success will depend on how well you put together this joint political/career team to deliver on your agenda. Some of this will be the matching of skills to the job, but some of this will be nding the right "chemistry" between your politicals and careerists. If you have a good team that works well together, you can get it done. Don't reorganize your agency One last thought: Reorganize only as a last resort. Gov- ernment reorganizations consume enormous resources, always take much longer than planned and focus ener- gies internally at the expense of the mission. If you do reorganize, make sure you do it quickly, have the right career staff in charge and don t try to x too many problems at once. Otherwise, the process takes over, and it is easy to lose a year or more to a reorganization initiative. ■ SPONSORED BY CDWG AND EMC BYOD TOPICS INCLUDE: BYOD PRESENTS BENEFITS, CHALLENGES FOR MOBILE STRATEGIES SECURITY, MANAGEMENT ISSUES THREATEN TO STALL BYOD IS BYOD REALLY THAT IMPORTANT TO MILLENNIALS?
