I was interviewed for an piece by GovLoop. The original can be found here: Reinventing Government: 20 Innovations for 2020 on page 23. The piece was titled, “Three Ways to Prepare Yourself for the Unexpected.” A few quotes follow, check out the link for the entire article:

“Disaster planning is perpetually chasing our tail trying to figure out what the unknowns are,” Eversmann said. “We’re not going to figure out all the unknowns.”

As agencies become more agile, their workers can react to hurdles such as COVID-19 with fewer disruptions to the products and services they deliver. Agencies can grow more agile by analyzing and making decisions about their data quicker and more efficiently.

“Enterprise automation looks at everything from a higher level and asks, ‘How can we connect these together?’” Eversmann said.

“If we’re going to put a positive spin on 2020, there are a lot of people with more of an open mind for change,” Eversmann said.
