The persistence of innovation in government by Sandford F Borins( )

14 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Persistence of Innovation in Government, Sandford Borins maps the changing landscape of American public sector innovation in the twenty-first century, largely addressing three key questions: Who innovates? When, why, and how do they do it? What are the persistent obstacles and the proven methods for overcoming them? Probing both the process and the content of innovation in the public sector, Borins identifies major shifts and important continuities. His examination of public innovation combines several elements: his analysis of the Harvard Kennedy School's Innovations in American Government Awards program; significant new research on government performance; and a fresh look at the findings of his earlier, highly praised book Innovating with Integrity: How Local Heros Are Transforming American Government. He also offers a thematic survey of the field's burgeoning literature, with a particular focus on international comparison."--Publisher's website

Negotiating Business Narratives : Fables of the Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Financial Trading Industries by Sandford F Borins( )

13 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book challenges the widely-held belief that popular narratives about business are invariably critical. It develops a more nuanced analytic model of private sector narrative and applies it to 63 recent narrative texts (movies, histories, biographies) produced in the US dealing with three major industries: information technology, automobile manufacturing, and financial trading. It identifies recurring patterns to compare sectors and to analyze their implications. Negotiating Business Narratives appeals to academics and practitioners interested in business and society, strategic management, and contemporary literature and films about business."--
