Now available: a new, updated edition of the book that started it all — in government, anyway. Nearly a decade ago, the first edition of Measuring Up took an irreverent, entertaining approach to introducing public managers to a management tool with staying power: performance measurement. The new edition provides the same clear introduction to linking resources and results, while showing how managers, executives and policymakers at every level of government are putting the techniques to use to improve services across the board.
The latest book in the Governing Management Series is a roadmap for public officials who want to do a better job of dealing with the media in all its forms, from getting the word out when good things happen to avoiding becoming media roadkill when something bad happens. Author Jonathan Walters is in a unique position to help public officials understand how the press works and how to cope with it: In addition to being a veteran journalist, he is also a public official. And he brings the same irreverent approach to De-Pressed that made his Measuring Up books best-sellers.
