'By treating problem-solving as designing processes that convert existing to preferred conditions, this book takes up an ambition to set an intellectual foundation for public management whose practices can be improved by design-oriented professional knowledge. The book extends the Simon-Bardach traditions but presents ideas in vivid ways, making itself a brand new contribution to research and pedagogy in public management.'
--Yijia Jing, Fudan University, China
'Michael Barzelay is the mentor needed by all of us interested in seeing - and designing - how public management as an enterprise can be part of creating a better future for everyone. The best mentors put their hand on your shoulder and point to what you ought to be doing, how, and why. Michael's book is that hand and it shows the way forward.'
--John M. Bryson, University of Minnesota, US
'Michael Barzelay offers a compelling account of the development of what he aptly and creatively describes as a ''design-oriented, professional discipline'' - the field of public management. In doing so, helps all those laboring in this particular vineyard to understand more precisely what they are about, and the standards they need to meet if they are to be both intellectually responsible and useful to those practicing within this important professional domain. I never expected to have my own work so thoughtfully and critically reviewed, but emerged from this experience heartened and invigorated by the continuing challenge of developing the field further with Michael as our guide.'
--Mark Moore, Harvard University, US
