Webinar: Budget Right-Sizing

5/4/2011 2:00 PM - 5/4/2011 3:00 PM


Instead of falling back on traditional fixes, public administrators must adopt new ways of thinking and new approaches to rightsize their increasingly unbalanced budgets. To help public service leaders understand how to combat future budget deficits and deliver sustainable savings, Accenture, a Gold Level sponsor of the 2010 NASCA Institute on Management and Leadership, is presenting a free, one-hour Webcast.

During this high-level discussion, Accenture will describe how its Budget Rightsizing approach enables government organizations to attack budget gaps using an integrated, modular set of proven best practices drawn from both the public and private sectors. Matt Gorzkowicz, Undersecretary, Massachusetts Executive Office for Administration and Finance, will share additional ideas and perspectives on controlling costs, orchestrating complex operational changes and initiating transformative programs.

Questions that will be answered during the session include:

  • How can states do more with less?
  • What are states doing to address their budget challenges?
  • What private sector best practices should be adopted by the public sector?
  • How can managers/administrators balance their budgets while operating in an environment that has far more constraints than what is encountered in the private sector?
