schema:description"Six American flags stand on the moon -- irrefutable proof of government's ability to overcome difficult challenges. Yet evidence of failure surrounds us, from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina to the 2008-09 economic meltdown to the chronic dysfunction of our urban schools. William D. Eggers and John O'Leary argue that playing the blame game is an exercise in futility. Instead, they go beyond partisan squabbles to take a look at the process by which government tackles its biggest challenges. Based on a review of over seventy-five government undertakings in the United States and abroad, Eggers and O'Leary pinpoint what it takes to successfully bring a public-sector initiative from great idea to desired results. They distill this "Journey to Success" into a practical set of steps that every public initiative must go through to deliver on its promise."@en
