The topic of public service reform discussed in this book is relevant to all advanced industrial societies. There are no easy answers and this book does not fall into the trap of trying to provide any. Instead it offers the reader food for reflection on the challenges involved. In doing so it provides a valuable service to policymakers and practitioners as well as researchers

A valuable and timely volume highlighting the considerable diversity of organizational innovation in the management of public affairs. The variety of organizational forms is immediately apparent from agencies through corporations, mutuals, social enterprises and beyond. They are all possible contributors to public governance, while themselves needing to be governed effectively as the analyses astutely confirm.

The reform and innovation of public sector services will be essential, but how will it be done? Will Information Technology transform public sector services as profoundly as it is altering the private service economy, indeed making possible the reforms and innovations. This volume usefully opens these and other debates about public sector governance.
