In this podcast, William Eggers draws valuable business lessons from how the government tries â€" and often fails â€" to launch big policy initiatives. Eggers explains why the source of systemic failures isn't the people behind them, but the systems themselves. He also lists the five conditions necessary to launch a major initiative successfully.
