The experience of September 11th was not an experience that government sustained by itself. Rather, it was an experience that crossed the public, private and nonprofit sectors and holds lessons for organizations of all kinds and sizes. In June 2004, the Center for Technology in Government (CTG) at the University at Albany, SUNY, put together a panel that represented these different perspectives.
The panel focused on ways in which the World Trade Center experience has, should, or might influence all organizations in what we now call “normal times.”
The following is an overview and an abridged transcipt of the panel discussion.
