The Business of Government Hour, hosted by Michael J. Keegan, features a conversation with government executives and thought leaders who are changing the way government does business. The show explores topics such as leadership, management, technology, innovation, public service, as well as the mission of government in the 21st century.
ON THIS WEEK’S SHOW:
Has our discomfort with uncertainty given rise to forecasting industries that profit off our “prediction addiction.”? Why election predictions, polls, and surveys won’t tell us who will win? To what extent are predictions really just hypothesis that need to be challenged? Join host Michael Keegan as he explores these questions and more with Margaret Heffernan author of Uncharted: How to Navigate the Future.
