Good government takes the long-term seriously and there can be few people better qualified than Geoff Mulgan to show how this aspiration can become part of the day-to-day work of departments and agencies. * Sir Gus O'Donnell, Cabinet Secretary & Head of the Home Civil Service, UK Government * Geoff Mulgan's deep insights into the politics of change derive from a profound understanding of the dynamics of modern societies, impressive creativity in the design of new social institutions, and an abiding commitment to social progress. His work has informed the thinking of public officials at the top of the pyramid as well as social entrepreneurs at the grass roots, and it should be widely read and studied. * Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Harvard Business School Professor and author of Confidence and World Class * What is needed to close the gap between existing government capacity and urgent problems is skilled strategists who can successfully integrate public aspirations, operational capacities to deliver results, and a sharp and unrelenting focus on the production of publicly valued results. Geoff Mulgan, relying on both a strong scholarly base, and broad experience in government, has written a wonderful book that can provide invaluable guidance to those who would like to offer such value creating public leadership. I recommend it highly. * Mark Moore, Hauser Professor, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard * Unusually useful and clear ... it shows how vision, courage and discipline can achieve change ... and avoids empty pieties by being firmly based on fact and experience. * Les Echos, France * Bold ... intelligent, well-argued and challenging. I recommend it. * Peter Shergold, former head of the Australian Public Service * Riveting fizzing with insights and ideas.... a "must read" for anyone interested in strategic choice and action in government. * Professor Colin Talbot, Manchester University *
