Jared Kushner as the US Innovator in Chief?

President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is lined up to head the new White House Office of American Innovation. Kushner is an NYU JD/MBA grad and is, like President Trump, something of royalty in New York’s real estate scene. As a relatively recent grad, I’m quietly optimistic that Kushner may bring common management consulting and process improvement ideas to the White House (BPR, continuous improvement/Kaizen, Six Sigma, change management) and the executive agencies.

None of those ideas/methodologies is new or innovative particularly, but we could see some seriously interesting case-studies coming out. As it happens, the General Services Administration provides some guidance for the procurement of Management Consulting services (https://www.gsa.gov/portal/category/21150)

One thought on “Jared Kushner as the US Innovator in Chief?

  1. I’ll be interested to see who Kushner gets involved with this initiative, and the kinds of recommendations they make to the president and to Congress.
