Shape the PMA Learning Agenda -- Share your thoughts on Government-wide management questions in support of the priorities of the President’s Management Agenda. https://www.performance.gov/pma/learning-agenda
The Biden-Harris Management Agenda Vision sets out key priorities for an equitable, effective, and accountable Government that delivers results for all Americans. A management-focused learning agenda in support of the President’s Management Agenda (PMA) will identify key Government-wide questions to answer in support of the PMA Vision.
Why a learning agenda? Learning Agendas focus leaders’ attention on building the research and evidence needed to solve big problems. This first PMA Learning Agenda will encourage collaboration and research to close evidence gaps within, beyond, and in partnership with the Federal Government.
Build the learning agenda: Whether you are a researcher or a public servant, you can help refine and answer these questions. You can join a learning community where the research done in response to these questions is shared with and can be used by decision makers in Government.
Read the Draft PMA Learning Agenda to learn how the agenda is developing, more context from relevant recent Executive Orders, and details on questions being explored. Your input on the draft questions is welcome. Share your ideas for the PMA Learning Agenda by January 31, 2022.
