Overview

Human Capital 2002 provides eight studies on the "state" of human capital in government today. Carol Chetkovich discusses the challenge of recruiting the best and the brightest to government. Hal G. Rainey describes how four federal agencies are using special authorities to "win the war for talent." Ray Blunt presents two studies on how government can better develop its future leaders. Michael D. Serlin describes the need for increased mobility among federal executives and presents case studies of six leaders who exemplified mobility throughout their careers. Barry Sugarman describes how several federal agencies attempted to create "learning organizations." Barry Rubin and Richard Rubin present a case study of Indianapolis' approach to collaborative management. Katherine C. Naff and J. Edward Kellough describe how government is approaching diversity and how it differs from traditional equal opportunity programs. From these studies, Mark A. Abramson, Ruby Butler DeMesme, and Nicole Willenz Gardner describe the human capital challenge now facing government and how it might best respond to the people and workplace challenge it now faces.

The Series provides cutting-edge knowledge for government leaders, academics, and students about the management of government in the 21st century.

Eight studies consider such issues as how to recruit the best and brightest workers to government, how to develop future government leaders, the need for increased mobility among federal executives, collaborative management, and new approaches to diversity.
