Managing for Results in State Government

Synopsis

Managing for Results is a model of organizational reform that relies on performance measurement, strategic planning, the linking of systems to improve performance, benchmarks, and a focus on public accountabilty. This book studies the implementation of Managing for Results on six states, who were identified by the U.S. General Accounting Office as leaders of internal reinvention efforts. Government and business practitioners, as well as scholars and researchers of public administration and policy, will find this book useful in assessment, selection, and measurement of state-level reform efforts.
