Contents Notes
It's not business as usual at DHS (Department of Homeland Security) -- Commercialization office -- DHS sees value in commercialization -- Using commercialization to develop solutions efficiently and effectively -- Public-private partnerships -- Creating opportunities for the private sector -- Offering transformational changes beyond DHS -- Conservative estimates of potential available markets -- Bridging the "communications gap" between the public and private -- The Capstone IPT (Integrated Product Team) and beyond -- It's all about putting theory into practice -- FutureTECH in action -- "Change ain't easy" but it's possible. Thomas A. Cellucci introduces procedures adopted by the federal sector in order to incite new and innovative partnerships between the public and private sectors and shows how both private entrepreneurs and government managers can use them most effectively. This book enables organizations in both the private and public sectors to develop and execute efficient and effective business partnerships. Detailed requirements and market potentials are developed which would help entice the private sector to use its own resources to develop products and services without delay and at minimal cost to taxpayers. The book starts from basic principle of partnerships, develops the concept of commercialization-based public-private partnerships, and provides templates, potential marketing tools, and real-world examples to prove the effectiveness of this shift in how government will work in the future.
