Description

Memos to the President: Management Advice from the Nation's Top Public Administrators provides eighteen memos to President George W. Bush about the management challenges facing his administration. Experts in public administration and public management give the President advice on four major management challenges: creating an electronic government, reforming regulations, revitalizing public service, and implementing performance management. The volume grows out of the work of the Government Performance Coalition, an ad hoc group of fourteen academic and nonprofit organizations united by their concern for improving the quality of government management.
