So you don’t think the federal bureaucracy is so creative? A new analysis of the latest Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey shows innovation in government is on the wane. Just one-third of federal employees say their agencies reward outside-the-box thinking. The Partnership for Public Service and its partners in the analysis find some bright spots, however. At the top is NASA. Author Rod Pyle has written a new book on the agency, called Innovation the NASA Way. He told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp about his book.
Tom Temin is the host of The Federal Drive, which airs from 6-10 a.m. on 1500 AM in the Washington, D.C. region and online everywhere. Tom has 30 years experience in journalism, mostly in technology markets. Before coming to Federal News Radio, he was a long-serving editor-in-chief of Government Computer News and Washington Technology magazines.
