Reinventing government : how the entrepreneurial spirit is transforming the public sector by David Osborne( Book )
75 editions published between 1922 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 2,908 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."

The price of government : getting the results we need in an age of permanent fiscal crisis by David Osborne( Book )
11 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and Japanese and held by 945 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

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

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
"Creating High-Performance Government Organizations presents practical advice and tools that managers and innovators at every level of government can use in molding their organizations into results oriented, mission-driven operations. Developed by a top-notch writing team under the auspices of the Alliance for Redesigning Government, these recommendations are rooted in the authors' years of experience in the public and private sectors, and in thorough research into the theory and practice of organizational transformation. Most importantly, the authors draw on the real world experience of front-line innovators and on ideas that were field-tested through the team's work with an array of public agencies." "The more than three dozen cases presented here will help you understand what high-performance organizations are and develop a clearer understanding of the preconditions to major change, the steps essential to getting started, and ways to overcome common roadblocks. This book details the eight characteristics common to high-performance agencies, illustrating each with concrete examples. And chapters on budgeting, human resources, and procurement systems show you how these critical central management functions can be strengthened to support change, performance and accountability."--Jacket
