By Rolf Dobelli HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on December 20, 2012
Format: Paperback
People don't usually associate creativity and innovation with government and bureaucracy, but William D. Eggers, executive director of Deloitte's Public Leadership Institute, and economist Shalabh Kumar Singh say a public agency can be as innovative as any private company. Innovation is a discipline, like budgeting or planning. If innovation is not a core value in your organization, you're missing the major ingredient you need to survive the shifting challenges of public administration. Referring to nimble private, public and nonprofit organizations, the authors explain innovation-building processes even big agencies can implement. Helpful infographics illustrate their concepts. getAbstract recommends this solid workbook to public agency leaders (especially new ones) and to other executives who want to harness the power of good ideas.

Good ideas and interesting thought on public sector innovation. But the formatting made it very to read. Expensive book for the poor formatting. Buy it hardcover.

Public employees have ideas and are as committed to innovation as anyone under the sun. This Playbook is perfect for framing issues, creating road-maps and engaging teams.

Only about 10 people in the government could do anything with what is written in here. It is a good book but really as possible as electing the sun for president.
