Global Governance

We believe that governmental tools, workplaces, and systems are not designed to maximize the efforts of hard-working public servants, and this is standing in the way of good governance.

  • Despite public attention and material resources, officials often struggle to fulfill their mandates, missing out on the potential to catalyze development.

  • Like all humans, when faced with competing priorities and scarce time and resources, public officials tend to “tunnel,” focusing only on the most urgent responsibilities.

  • Small changes to often overlooked aspects of the context in which government workers and public officials operate can drastically improve government performance.

By leveraging a deep understanding of human behavior, our governance team supports the work of public servants in low- and middle-income countries through light-touch, low-cost interventions aimed at optimizing limited public resources, and more importantly, at improving the lives of the people governments serve.
