Author David Osborne to Speak at UNO Dec. 7
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) College of Public Affairs and Community Service (CPACS), in association with the Greater Omaha Chamber and Omaha Alliance for the Public Sector, is bringing David Osborne, author of several books on governmental and performance management, to the UNO Campus Dec. 7.
The event will take place at 1 p.m. in Bootstrapper Hall at the Thompson Alumni Center on the UNO campus. Osborne will provide a lecture about the impact of governmental budgeting on policy makers and taxpayers, which will be followed by a panel discussion on the topic.
"David Osborne led of the movement in the early 1990's to focus on redefined federal government performance,” said John Bartle, acting dean of CPACS “He served the Clinton administration and worked to make local, state, and federal government more creative, responsive and flexible. His work today continues to focus on improving government efficiency and effectiveness."
In addition to his 1997 New York Times Best-Seller, “Reinventing Government,” Osborne is the author or co-author of five books and a senior partner at The Public Strategies Group, a consulting firm that helps public organizations develop and implement strategies to improve their performance. Osborne was also a senior advisor to Vice President Al Gore in 1993 and assisted in the launch of the National Performance Review (then the National Partnership for Reinventing Government), which put many of the principles identified by Osborne into action on the federal level.
