Deputy Director of Management, Office of Management and Budget
Jason Miller says effective leaders know it is all about the team. “A good leader builds and supports a strong team, establishes a clear vision, communicates it regularly – both internally and externally, and empowers the team to take action and adjust as needed,” he told FedScoop. At the Office of Management and Budget, Miller has three top priorities: deliver on the President’s commitment to dramatically improve federal service delivery and customer experience, execute on the president’s commitment to strengthening cybersecurity and bring even more technical talent into the federal workforce at all levels. According to Miller, working in the federal government will show a leader just how important it is to listen: “Organizational leadership is temporary in the federal agencies, and in my role, I recognize that I am temporary. Our teams – our workforce – provide continuity, institutional memory, and deep expertise. To make change durable, you need to start by listening,” he told FedScoop.
