Transforming public policy: dynamics of policy entrepreneurship and innovation
Transforming Public Policy shows how to influence and fundamentally redirect public policy through the strategic use of policy entrepreneurship and innovation. Using the example of a single in-depth study?public school choice in Minnesota?the authors provide specific guidelines for achieving large-scale system change. The case illustrates the entire process of entrepreneur-driven radical change by following the issue of public school choice from its beginning, as an innovative idea, through its four-year legislative process, to its implementation into practice within the Minnesota school system. Includes personal profiles of six change agents who worked toward this large-scale transformation and chronicles their activities, strategies, and tactics, providing an insightful analysis of what it takes to be a successful policy entrepreneur.
