What do public sector organizations have to be more cognizant of when making business decisions?

Top Answer : I need to be even more sensitive about the users because government agencies face a lot of consensus. So the way that things work, even if you have the best technology–and you may have a departmental head who is very into technologies–if a key end user isn’t able to use the system then it makes a huge difference. I’ve worked in the public sector for six years and I’ve worked for the private sector as well. I can definitely tell the difference. This consensus-based approach is really important. At the very least, it’s going to delay the timeline. A lot of times, it is delayed significantly and that can add to costs. Government agencies are not profit-driven. But we are very sensitive to the costs associated with projects. It will look bad in front of taxpayers if we’re not sensitive to costs. So that’s where the drive is a little bit different.
