Geoff Mulgan's deep insights into the politics of change derive from a profound understanding of the dynamics of modern societies, impressive creativity in the design of new social institutions, and an abiding commitment to social progress. * Professor Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Harvard Business School *
Bold ... intelligent, well-argued and challenging. I recommend it. * Peter Shergold, former head of the Australian Public Service *
Unusually useful and clear ... it shows how vision, courage and discipline can achieve change ... and avoids empty pieties by being firmly based on fact and experience. * Les Echos, France *
What is needed to close the gap between existing government capacity and urgent problems is skilled strategists who can successfully integrate public aspirations, operational capacities to deliver results, and a sharp and unrelenting focus on the production of publicly valued results. Geoff Mulgan, relying on both a strong scholarly base, and broad experience in government, has written a wonderful book that can provide invaluable guidance to those who would like to offer such value creating public leadership. I recommend it highly. * Mark Moore, Hauser Professor, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard *
Good government takes the long-term seriously and there can be few people better qualified than Geoff Mulgan to show how this aspiration can become part of the day-to-day work of departments and agencies. * Sir Gus O'Donnell, Cabinet Secretary & Head of the Home Civil Service, UK Government *
