Governing by Network examines, for the first time, government’s transformation from centralized control over public programs to facilitating services through networks of nongovernmental entities, as seen through the experience of dozens of public innovators.
In this model, the role of government is transformed from direct service provider to generator of public value. There are huge advantages to governing by network — flexibility, speed, innovation and specialization to name just a few — but also serious challenges.
Managing a portfolio of provider networks is different than managing divisions of public employees. It requires a form of public management different from what governments and their citizens have become accustomed to over the past 100 years.
This book outlines what this new model of government would look like and provides a roadmap for actually governing the networked state. Drawing from dozens of case studies, as well as established best practices, it provides lessons to inform elected officials, business executives, and the broader public.
"In Governing by Network, Goldsmith and Eggers answer one of the most important public policy questions of our time: how public officials can achieve results and ensure accountability to citizens in an age in which government relies more and more on partners to do the public’s business. This comes at a time when the pressure on government to deliver better service for less money has become intense."
— Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell
"From business to warfare, networked organizational forms are supplanting hierarchies. Now, Goldsmith and Eggers, two of America's most innovative policy thinkers, show how the networking trend is transforming government. This book is a must read for anyone concerned with how to make government better and more cost effective."
— Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney
