Jim Garrettson, founder and CEO of Executive Mosaic, presented John Goodman, chief executive of Accenture Federal Services, his third consecutive Wash100 Award as part of the 2020 selection on Tuesday.
Executive Mosaic recognizes Goodman for driving information technology efforts within federal agencies, innovation for emerging technology and excellent customer satisfaction.
During an interview with ExecutiveBiz in January 2018, Goodman stressed the importance of technology being used to drive the mission of the agency rather than technology having the opposite effect.
“It’s not just about specific technologies…it’s about how you marshal those technologies to directly improve the mission of the agency and the experiences of those whom we serve,” said Goodman.
Goodman showed his support for the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act in March. He argued that the act has helped federal chief information officers become innovation partners and that federal agencies are more focused on information technology modernization and efforts to improve government services, which includes the need to innovate using a clear vision and goals to determine the customer engagement and understand the technological changes being made.
“Those are the two key challenges, I think, for our clients. It is first helping their workers and their employees understand how to use artificial intelligence. And second is providing their employees with the skills and training to be able to engage effectively,” Goodman illustrated.
Executive Mosaic congratulates Accenture Federal Services and John Goodman on his third consecutive Wash100 Award. Goodman’s push for information technology modernization within federal agencies and emerging technologies showcases his contributions to the GovCon sector and its future.
