Reinventing government : how the entrepreneurial spirit is transforming the public sector by David Osborne( Book )
45 editions published between 1922 and 1997 in English and held by 2,703 libraries worldwide
"3) encourage competition rather than monopoly" "4) are driven by their missions, not their rules" "5) fund outcomes rather than inputs" "6) meet the needs of the customer, not the bureaucracy" "7) concentrate on earning, not just spending" "8) invest in prevention rather than cure" "9) decentralize authority" "10) solve problems by leveraging the marketplace, rather than simply creating public programs." "To civil servants and elected officials, to business people and community activists--to anyone who cares about government in America--Reinventing Government offers a breath of fresh air."--Jacket
The price of government : getting the results we need in an age of permanent fiscal crisis by David Osborne( Book )
16 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 919 libraries worldwide
"Overall, American governments from the White House to City Hall are enduring their worst fiscal crisis since World War II. But this time, the crisis will be permanent. On one side are skyrocketing costs for health care, Social Security and pensions. On the other is opposition to tax increases. In the face of this crisis the bankrupt ideologies of left and right offer little guidance. The Price of Government does." "Whereas Reinventing Government, David Osborne's 1992 New York Times bestseller, was a manifesto for change, The Price of Government is a clear, step-by-step roadmap for change, offering concrete solutions drawn from the author's combined thirty years of experience leading and advising public institutions. The authors begin by describing a radically different approach to budgeting - one that focuses on buying results for citizens rather than cutting or adding to last year's spending programs. They go on to show how leaders can use consolidation, competition, customer choice, and a relentless focus on results to save millions while improving public services, at all levels of government."--Jacket

Banishing bureaucracy : the five strategies for reinventing government by David Osborne( Book )
30 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and Chinese and held by 791 libraries worldwide
Respected innovators to come out of state government in the past decade, provide a road map by which reinventors and political thinkers of all persuasions can actually make "reinvention" work. Reinvention is not just another word for reform, nor is it synonymous with downsizing, or privatization, or simply cutting waste and fraud. It is about something much deeper, something tantamount to changing the very "DNA" of public organizations so that they habitually innovate
The coming : a novel by David Osborne( Book )
1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 372 libraries worldwide
A "novel of native-white relations in North America, intimately told through the life of Daytime Smoke -- the real-life red-haired son of William Clark and a Nez Perce woman. In 1805, Lewis and Clark stumble out of the Rockies on the edge of starvation. The Nez Perce help the explorers build canoes and navigate the rapids of the Columbia, then spend two months hosting them the following spring before leading them back across the snowbound mountains. Daytime Smoke is born not long after, and the tribe of his youth continues a deep friendship with white Americans, from fur trappers to missionaries, even aiding the United States government in wars with neighboring tribes. But when gold is discovered on Nez Perce land in 1860, it sets an inevitable tragedy in motion"--Provided by publisher

Reinventing America's schools : creating a 21st century education system by David Osborne( Book )
4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 254 libraries worldwide
In 2005, when Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, the city got an unexpected opportunity to recreate their school system from scratch. The state's Recovery School District (RSD), created to turn around failing schools, gradually transformed all of its New Orleans schools into charter schools, and the results are shaking the very foundations of American education. Test scores, school performance scores, graduation and dropout rates, ACT scores, college-going rates, and independent studies all tell the same story: the city's RSD schools have tripled their effectiveness in eight years. Now other cities are following suit, with state governments reinventing failing schools in Newark, Camden, Memphis, Denver, Indianapolis, Cleveland, and Oakland. David Osborne uses stories from cities like New Orleans and lays out the history and possible future of public education. Ultimately, he uses his research to argue that in today's world, we should treat every public school like a charter school and grant them autonomy, accountability, diversity of school designs, and parental choice

Staff training and assessment by David Osborne( Book )
4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 102 libraries worldwide
Staff Training and Assessment is a practical guide for trainers and line managers/supervisors. It contains clear descriptions of the aims, terms, techniques and methods of training and shows how important it is to match training interventions to the culture and style of the organization. The role of the trainer, learning strategies and the novel ways in which they can be applied are covered as well as the wider background of government initiatives and the response of businesses to the effects of the recession and upturn in employment prospects. By providing clear and usable frameworks for analysing and solving problems, check lists and reading lists, Staff Training and Assessment is a valuable training resource
Economic competitiveness : the states take the lead by David Osborne( Book )
3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 77 libraries worldwide
New economic strategies used by states are described, and case studies of the recent innovations in economic development policies of Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Michigan are presented. A number of programs in other states are briefly reviewed, and various models of state intervention are evaluated, along with the principles that underlie successful programs. Some questions raised by the economic activism of U.S. governors and state legislators are addressed. Lessons from the recent experimentation in state economic development policy are considered, along with the implications for federal policy of this expansion of state government's role in the economy. Appended are a glossary of acronyms and a chart that specifies types of competitiveness programs used in these three states. Specific programs are identified under the following categories: programs to stimulate technological innovation, capital programs, programs to help new and small businesses, technology transfer programs, labor-management cooperation programs, education and training programs, export programs, programs to bring the poor into the growth process, and the principles of effective economic development.

Budgeting for outcomes : better results for the price of government by David Osborne( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Governments are facing a permanent fiscal crisis. The costs of running governments are rising, especially the costs to educate, incarcerate, and medicate. Consequently, government is broke. Traditional budgeting only makes matters worse. The focus (and the acrimony) settles on the small percentages to cut, but the great majority of spending escapes examination. Budgeting for Outcomes: Better Results for the Price of Government changes this equation. It asks different questions-and gets very different answers. This e-book explains how local governments can create a budget designed to give resi
