The Entrepreneurial State from the Author: Mariana Mazzucato. This bestseller from leading economist Mariana Mazzucato � named by the �New Republic� as one of the �most important innovation thinkers� today � is stirring up much-needed debates worldwide about the role of the State in innovation. Debunking the myth of a laggard State at odds with a dynamic private sector, Mazzucato reveals in case study after case study that in fact the opposite situation is true, with the private sector only finding the courage to invest after the entrepreneurial State has made the high-risk investments. Case studies include examples of the State�s role in the �green revolution�, in biotech and pharmaceuticals, as well as several detailed examples from Silicon Valley. In an intensely researched chapter, she reveals that every technology that makes the iPhone so �smart� was government funded: the Internet, GPS, its touch-screen display and the voice-activated Siri. Mazzucato also controversially argues that in the history of modern capitalism the State has not only fixed market failures, but has also shaped and created markets, paving the way for new technologies and sectors that the private sector only ventures into once the initial risk has been assumed. And yet by not admitting the State�s role we are socializing only the risks, while privatizing the rewards in fewer hands. This, she argues, hurts both future innovation and equity in modern-day capitalism. Named one of the �2013 Books of the Year� by the �Financial Times� and recommended by �Forbes� in its 2013 �creative leaders� list, this book is a must-read for those interested in a refreshing and long-awaited take on the public vs. private sector debate.

Innovation from the Author: Mark A. Abramson. Innovation provides five in-depth studies on the 'state' of innovation in government today. Jonathan Walters analyzes what he has learned from studying winners of the Ford Foundation/Kennedy School Innovations in Government awards program. Sandford Borins examines the five building blocks of innovation. Janet Vinzant Denhardt and Robert Denhardt tell us how Phoenix created a culture of innovation within city government. William Eimicke studied San Diego County, California to find out how innovative programs can be implemented in a large county government. Scott Tarry presents five case studies of metropolitan airport authorities and how they attempted to foster innovation. From these case studies, Mark A. Abramson and Ian D. Littman discuss what we know about innovation and what we have learned about fostering, implementing, and replicating it. They also discuss the relationship between the innovator and innovation.

The Federal Management Playbook from the Author: Ira Goldstein. Stories of government management failures often make the headlines, but quietly much gets done as well. What makes the difference? Ira Goldstein offers wisdom about how to lead and succeed in the federal realm, even during periods when the political climate is intensely negative, based on his decades of experience as a senior executive at two major government consulting firms and as a member of the US federal government's Senior Executive Service. The Federal Management Playbook coaches the importance of always keeping four key concepts in mind when planning for success: goals, stakeholders, resources, and time frames. Its chapters address how to effectively motivate government employees, pick the right technologies, communicate and negotiate with powerful stakeholders, manage risks, get value from contractors, foster innovation, and more. Goldstein makes lessons easy to apply by breaking each chapter’s plans into three strategic phases: create an offensive strategy, execute your plan effectively, and play a smart defense. Additional tips describe how career civil servants and political appointees can get the most from one another, advise consultants on providing value to government, and help everyone better manage ever-present oversight. The Federal Management Playbook is a must-read for anyone working in the government realm and for students who aspire to public service.

Delivering On Digital from the Author: William D. Eggers. What if you could file your taxes or open a business online in mere minutes? It's already possible in Estonia. So why are some US government agencies still running software from the 1960s with no upgrades in sight? When HealthCare.gov went live in October 2013, many called the website a catastrophe. For the U.S. Federal government, however, the launch ultimately proved pivotal: it underscored the necessity of digital excellence in public institutions and inspired hundreds of the tech industry’s best and brightest to come to Washington with the singular mission to modernize government. So how do you take a government built on analog, industrial-era frameworks and redesign it as a fully digital state? We must imagine a new kind of government. Imagine prison systems that use digital technology to return nonviolent offenders promptly and securely into society. Imagine a veterans health care system built around delivering a personalized customer experience for every Vet. We now have the digital tools (cloud computing, mobile devices, analytics) and the talent to stage a real transformation. This book provides the handbook to make it happen. William D. Eggers, author of nine books and a leading authority on government reform, knows how we can use tech-savvy teams, strong leadership, and innovative practices to reduce the risks and truly achieve a digitally transformed government.
