By Camaron J. Thomas
A public manager herself and successful consultant in the public sector, Camaron Thomas argues for a whole new way of being a public manager. She introduces a new paradigm for how the public sector should work: a collaborative, functional environment in which fast-paced, purposeful change, civility, and initiative are actually the norm. Real, positive change is part of every employee's job; control in the public sector must be replaced with shared responsibility, and for her new paradigm to be realized it must be understood and "internalized" by managers one at a time. Her book offers a way to alter the mindsets of public employees, and thus promises perceivable results in a reasonable period of time.
