The intent of Administrative Renewal is to study the evolution of executive branch organization during the recently completed 20th century. The approach selected for the exercise is to review the "landmark commissions," such as the Hoover Commissions of mid-century, to determine how and why they were created and what they accomplished. The objective is to study each of the commissions to determine how they interpreted their mission and what others concluded about their successes and failures.
