More information about the SAGE program:

The Partnership for Public Service’s Strategic Advisors to Government Executives (SAGE) Program connects senior-level executives in government with their predecessors and private-sector counterparts, providing them with an opportunity to leverage prior government experience as well as private-sector capabilities to continue to help transform government and improve performance. The SAGE effort focuses on the senior leadership in government, tackling issues that affect the management of operational disciplines across the public-sector. The Partnership’s SAGE Program is currently comprised of communities for Chief Information Officers (CIO), Chief Financial Officers (CFO) and Chief Acquisition Officers (CAO).

Goals
The four main goals of the SAGE Program are to:

  • Help incoming public-sector, C-suite executives successfully improve the performance of government;
  • Assist, advise and mentor these executives on successful implementation of discipline specific strategies;
  • Create a forum for thought leadership, information exchange and cross-community collaboration among existing and former federal C-suite executives; and
  • Share and build on valuable “lessons learned” from both the private sector and government, and discuss foundational activities essential to integrating strategies and delivering support.
