The Business of Government Magazine – The NEW Fall/Winter 2010 Edition
The Center is pleased to announce the publication of the Fall/Winter 2010 The Business of Government magazine. This edition has as its background a period rife with significant challenges that go to the core of effective public management. Faced with seemingly intractable issues such as an ever growing federal deficit, economic uncertainty, unemployment, and aging infrastructure, it appears that the old adage “doing more with less” has taken on a whole new reality. Addressing the challenges arising from this new reality brings with it opportunities—to try different approaches, borrow new strategies, forgo old ways of doing things, and leverage seemingly incongruous practices to ameliorate otherwise vexing problems.
Within these pages, we have assembled a varied group of leaders, innovators, practitioners, and thinkers, who in their own way offer models to follow, provide insights that can infuse theory to practice, and pave the way to shaping the business of government. We do our best to explore critical public management question and delve into the new and different terrain -- the shifting contours and dangerous detours that define this moment in time. We hope you enjoy the perspectives, insights, recommendations, and profiles in leadership presented in the Fall/Winter 2010 edition of The Business of Government that reveal the business of government is not business as usual:
