The Executive Initiative is a measure of work done by the Executive Branch and it's members. With the Executive with the most points receiving the Neil Emblem and with the Executive with the least number of points having an impeachment opened against them.
The Executive Initiative traces it's origins to Major Executive Elliot Neil, who had a similar initiative known as Trimester Agendas. While this version that would become the Executive Initiative held no legal standing, it did give a show as to who was productive and got most Executives working again after the Branch and Triumvirate as a whole faced an activity slump. The legacy of Neil's "Get to work" attitude is so great that the 'Neil Emblem' is awarded to the Executive who obtains the most points in the current version of the initiative.
The current initiative started in 2015-I by Major Executive Edward Stenbach and Head of Naturalization Lanclot Rice via the Executive Initiative. The initiative was set to last for one trimester as a testbed to see how effective it would be at getting Executives to work. It was managed and points were awarded by the Head of Naturalization. Over 250 points worth of work was achieved by the Executive Branch with Major Executive Stenbach obtaining the most points. It was deemed that with the impeachments of Head of Media Spencer Kaye and Head of Commerce and Industry Vulpes Arenas that another was not necessary. The initiative was restarted for 2015-II with Head of the Treasury Andrew Hester leading the effort with close cooperation between Stenbach and new Major Executive Charles Sessions, observing the lack of point updates by Rice and taking over a week to announce the winner it was decided that rather than have a position solely managing the initiative, along with adding to their position's workload, that the Major Executive, would nominate a Sophomore, or higher ranked, Executive to oversee the initiative for that trimester and if confirmed by the Executive Branch. The new initiative was approved on May 15, 2015. Hester was then nominated by Sessions to be the managing Executive of the initiative, being confirmed on May 21. After some controversy of Andrew Hester winning the Executive Initiative, Charles Sessions proceeded to award the Neil Emblem to Edward Stenbach.
