Abstract

President Bush’s management agenda, initiated in FY 2002, is the latest in a long series of management reforms that have been introduced in the Federal sector with the intent of improving government efficiency and effectiveness. All of the reforms bear a strong similarity in that they are soundly conceived, enthusiastically launched by the incoming Administration, implemented on a broad scale, and then fade with time as the perceived return on investment declines. As the Bush Administration enters its second term, the timing is appropriate to raise the question: What can public sector managers do to enhance their return on investment in these reforms? This article reviews key conditions that should be met to aid in successful reform implementation; challenges to meeting these conditions; and suggestions for addressing the challenges.
