Written in 2015 in fulfillment of a grant provided by the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE), these six case studies look into the best practices and challenges of public sector partners undergoing the Performance Governance System.
Written by ISA founder, Dr. Jess Estanislao, each book discusses different governance issues and stories of transformation that serve as a resource for those who want to learn more about the governance advocacy.
It Can Be Done
The case studies in this book engage with classic issues of design and implementation. How can leaders help employees understand, embrace, and indeed guide change? How can governments work effectively with the business community? How can the most marginalized citizens be brought into the design and implementation of programs that affect them?
If there is one thing we should remember about good governance, it is that the future of our country does not lie in the hands of a few; it lies in our hands as responsible citizens, willing to contribute our ideas and efforts toward inclusive and sustainable progress.
