Abstract

Within the next few pages, we outline how the U.S. President might employ novel arrangements of human and technology elements to produce improved government efforts involving the collective insights of all government works to: (1) better serve the public, (2) protect our country, and (3) generate innovative solutions that both address present day problems and produce a better future for us all. We seek to discuss insights into collective intelligence in large organizations - which, for the most part, has not been discussed with regard to the U.S. government - and translate the themes of these books to improve the Executive Branch.
