MANY PUBLIC Sector leaders I know are constantly on the look out for great ideas. For innovative ideas. For ideas that can improve quality of life for their communities.

Andy Feldman's GovInnovator is one resource that shouldn't be overlooked. It's tag line is "insights for results-focused public leaders."

The site is packed with Podcasts on various topics like, "How the State of Mississippi uses evidence based budgeting to increase return on investment," "Raising job quality and skills for American workers through more effective education and workforce development," and "Using school-based health centers to address the health needs of low-income youth."
