Since Government of Indonesia designs and carries out a Roadmap of Bureaucratic Reform in 2010, success as well as failure cases have been undergoing that determines the process and outcome of the roadmap. This paper seeks to reveal a number of key success factors and challenges ahead for the elected Jokowi-JK government to overcome. Nawacita, vision of Jokowi-JK, has clearly shown a strong commitment of the government to bureaucracy reform. Nonetheless, such political commitment needs to be translated into a concrete strategic policy to booster and to ensure that many agendas of bureaucracy reform could be delivered to satisfy the performance target.
