This is the new way of governing.

The time has come for the rise of the tech savvy executive: an individual who innately understands the need to help the use of technology rise at the same level across the entire organization. In Baltimore and in Maryland, Governor Martin O’Malley has done all of these things and more.

Smarter Government: How to Govern for Results in the Information Age is about a more effective way to lead that is emerging, enabled by the Information Age. It provides real solutions to real problems using GIS technology and helps develop a management strategy using data that will profoundly change an organization.

Martin O'Malley served as the Mayor of Baltimore from 1999 to 2007 and as the 61st Governor of Maryland from 2007 to 2015. He was the first leader to take CompStat—a crime-management system pioneered in New York City in the 1990s—and apply the same ideas at city- and state-wide scales.
