The consulting firm Sapient has released a report detailing the findings of a study of government change agents, leaders who are able to effectively implement changes in government.

The white paper, "The Government's New Breed of Change Agents: Leading the War on Terror,” is based on interviews with 24 leaders in government.

The paper provides a detailed analysis of the common traits of leaders who have been able to effect change. It identifies six key management strategies:

1. Challenge the status quo.

2. Frame a clear, compelling vision.

3. Focus on outcomes.

4. Realign and lead within the bureaucracy.

5. Uncover the right talent.

6. Listen intently.

The paper is available for downloading free of charge from Sapient's new Web site, which will feature interviews with change agents. The site includes a blog that offers an open forum for discussing management and leadership in government.
