The Government Performance Group (TGPG) is a highly specialized practice within the Governance area in the Bharti Institute of Public Policy with a focus on improving all aspects of government performance. Our group has unparalleled expertise to provide practical advice on the design and implementation of an entire range of tried and tested policy instruments that have the potential to dramatically enhance the ‘performance’ and ‘perception’ of a government.
TGPG is led by Professor Prajapati Trivedi, Senior Fellow (Governance) at Bharti Institute of Public Policy and Adjunct Professor of Public Policy at ISB. One of the world’s foremost authorities on Government Performance Management, he served for more than five years as Secretary to the Government of India.

In addition, he has led the implementation of a wide array of administrative reforms that enhance performance of government organizations.
TGPG consists of a network of large group of professionals who have worked together for many years on improving performance of various government organizations.
