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.

Performance Management In The Public Sector from the Author: Wouter Van Dooren. "In times of rising expectations and decreasing resources for the public sector, performance management is high on the agenda. Increasingly, the value of the performance management systems themselves is under scrutiny, with more attention being paid to the effectiveness of performance management in practice. This new edition of Performance Management in the Public Sector explores performance, as well as performance measurement, and making performance information useful for management. The book includes: - situates performance in some of the current public management debates, including some emerging discussions on the new public governance and neo-Weberianism; - discusses the many definitions of performance and how it has become one of the most contested agendas of public management; - examines the use as well as the non-use of performance information; - conveys a nuanced discussion of the so-called perverse effects of using performance indicators; - discusses the technicalities of performance measurement in a five step process: prioritising measurement, indicator development, data collection, analysis and reporting; and - explores the challenges and future directions of performance management Performance Management in the Public Sector 2nd edition offers an approachable insight into a complex theme for practitioners and students alike. For scholars, the book directs attention to key research issues, most pressingly the use of performance information"--

Innovation Science Environment 08 09 from the Author: Glen Toner. Rapidly developing changes in technology, scientific knowledge, and domestic and international environmental issues force analysts to constantly reevaluate how public policy is coping. Are governments leading, following, or falling behind other societal actors? This third volume in a series of annual assessments of Canadian public policy provides an innovative approach to evaluating key developments in one of the most challenging areas of public policy in the twenty-first century. Leading experts look at crucial issues such as climate change, sustainable development policy tools, science management, and the international approach to governing intellectual property. They address recent developments within the pesticide, wildlife, and infrastructure policy areas involving the federal government and key private and non-governmental players. The 2008-09 volume explores the role of governments in a number of key areas, showing that while government institutions and policies should be part of the solution to the complex array of science and technology and environment and development issues facing Canadians, too often it appears they are part of the problem. Contributors include Glen Toner (Carleton), Robert Paehlke (Trent), Mark Jaccard and Rose Murphy (Simon Fraser), Jac van Beek (Canada Foundation for Innovation) and Frances Issaacs (National Research Council of Canada), Sara Bannerman (Carleton), Robert Gibson (Waterloo), David Robinson (Laurentian), Francois Bregha (Stratos Inc.), Scott Findlay and Annick Dezeil (Ottawa), Robert Hilton and Christopher Stoney (Carleton), and Jeremy Wilson (Victoria).
