Dallas County is a safer, better place for older adults today compared to 40 years ago — because Molly Bogen spent her entire working life doing her darnedest to make it that way. Bogen, 67, will retire in January, leaving after almost 40 years as president and CEO of The Senior Source of Dallas, a tenure that made her Dallas’ longest-serving executive director of a major nonprofit. John Taylor Jr. was on the board of The Senior Source — then called the Senior Citizens of Greater Dallas — when it hired Bogen. “Molly has been a champion of older people in Dallas,” says Hedy Helsell, a friend and retired executive director of the Center for Nonprofit Management. Bogen’s original marching orders were open-ended: Change the agency and expand its reach to serve seniors throughout Dallas County.

Colvin's basic argument is that computers can never fully replace people. Technology is replacing people in a number of fields and generating improved efficiency and quality. There is a very real concern for future job creation, but as Colvin argues there are many problems that computers cannot address. But it is also clear that there are many areas where technology cannot replace people. The problems government has to address often involve conflicting values and constituencies. The two decades of experience with management systems and, more recently, measurement systems confirms data alone cannot solve every problem. With others the scope of government operations necessitates they be tackled by teams, in which success depends on collaboration, brainstorming and an ability to influence others. The recurring cybersecurity crises, the pressure to improve program management, and the repeated calls for acquisition reform have a common thread—government’s problems demand highly motivated, empowered employees with better skill sets. The Veterans Affairs Department’s problems as well as the Secret Service’s problems are people issues. The nature of the workforce problems can only be resolved by a commitment to invest and encourage people management.

"We opened the entire space up, [but] I didn't just want to walk into the living room," she said. A new half-wall and pillar define the entry as does the black granite floor. The 15-by-12-foot living room has a wall of built-ins that replaced bookshelves, flanking the gas fireplace at the far end. Recessed lighting and new oak floors throughout give a fresh feel. The wall between the living and the dining room was also removed.
