Implementing State Government Export Programs: A Comparative Analysis
In this chapter the Mazmanian-Sabatier analytical framework is applied to the experience of the states discussed in the preceding chapter. The usefulness of the six theoretical categories of analysis for the framework and the four empirical factors hypothesized as crucial to agency effectiveness will be tested. The operationalization of the framework is accomplished by reducing its six conditions for effective implementation from general statements to the following explicit theoretical categories, as discussed in the methodology section of the study:
1. Official/mandate factor
2. Legislative/operative factor
3. Structural/organizational factor
4. Resource factor
5. Environmental/sovereign factor
6. Contextual factor

Each of the above factors is applied to the four states, which are then ranked on a continuum according to analytical levels of high, moderate, low or neutral. Once this process has been completed general deductions are made about each case. Therefore, the major research questions as well as the central hypothesis of the study--that "export agencies will be effective in direct proportion to their conformity to the six conditions established by the Mazmanian-Sabatier framework"--are considered in this section of the study.

I argue that the Mazmanian-Sabatier framework has its limits and is inadequate in explaining a number of issues that influence the performance of state government export programs or a state's overall international business orientation.
