David Osborne's 1992 bestseller, "Reinventing Government," was a landmark book that identified ten principles for creating a more efficient government. This essential sequel goes one step further, focusing on strategic levers for changing public systems and organizations on a permanent basis to achieve dynamic increases in effectiveness, efficiency, adaptability, and capacity to innovate. In an age of disillusionment with public service, "Banishing Bureaucracy" offers inspiring stories of organizations that really work and provides specific recipes for effective change. Here is a road map by which reinventors can actually make "reinvention" work.
