Reinventing State Government: Managing for Results

Author: MARIA P. ARISTIGUETA
Published in PAQ, Vol. 26 No. 2

This article compares and contrasts the reinvention efforts at the
national and state levels of government. Findings include striking similarities

account of the management components that make up the reinvention
efforts at the state level and how these components are linked and
aligned. Illustrations are provided from findings in six states’ managing
for results systems and their linking efforts
