Summary
  • Transforming Public Policy shows how individuals can 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. The book 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
  • Nancy Roberts and Paula King offer an understanding of radical change that is useful to practitioners, researchers, and policy scholars and they provide a wealth of recommendations and information
