Reinventing Government: How the Entrepreneurial Spirit is Transforming the Public Sector
"Reinventing government" details the most revolutionary idea of our time-an idea whose time has come. Its authors give proof positive that government does not have to be a gigantic and inefficient bureaucracy. Instead, it can govern in the true sense of the word, by tapping the tremendous power of the entrepreneurial process and the force of the free market. In case after case, the authors show how this approach already has proven its worth all over the country-in schools, in slums, in sanitation, in a host of other areas where enterprising and innovative public officials have delivered a far bigger public service bang for every budgeted buck. To cut taxes and improve services at the same time may seem too good to be true. Yet now we have in our hands a way to make it come true-if we and politicians of all parties and persuasions read it and use it.

It is a Vitamin for Good Governance in any State.
~ Sukumar Satyen
One of the best books ever written on Government Strategy, especially from the citizen/community viewpoint. This is almost the uk government policy....... Written back in 1992, still valid, still relevent. This was the gub of my Masters Thessi in 1999. Using it again now in 2011, as part of a PhD literature review. Excellent case studies and model apporaches to solving community based service delivery problems. Even quoted in the Time on Friday 14th October 2011. Recommended for all students studying Public Policy.
