The Year 2000 Research Group Inc., formerly The Government Source™, was formed in
early 1991. In late 1996, The Government Source [TGS], publisher of the critically
acclaimed FOCUS Report, began work on the YEAR 2000: The Business and Government
Survival Guide. With the participation of more than 80 companies and government
departments, TGS assembled a team of more than 1,500 Year 2000 experts. By sharing
strategies, approaches, and experiences with these Year 2000 experts, The Government
Source distilled an anthology that is a uniquely North American collection of Year 2000
projects, case studies and experiences. This publication was quickly followed by Whatever
It Takes!, a publication that illuminates the growing body of evidence on Year 2000's entry
points of chaos. These two publications have become the twin pillars of "awareness" for
many organization's internal action plans.
Since the fall of 1997, Year 2000 Research Group's objectives have been two-fold. First,
maintain the content-rich Year 2000 research that organizations desperately depend on.
Second, as a result of the extensive research conducted in writing both books, we sought to
fill the vacuum of much needed solutions to client/server Year 2000 problems.
