This report opens the door to this discussion and explores the underlying forces of change that are driving the need for a new operating model.
Pew interviewed over 350 state leaders across the U.S. and reviewed relevant laws, documents, and policies in all the states to produce a report detailing five key actions states can take to promote data-driven decision-making:
