Your first 90 days in a new public management position can be the most critical time of your career. Few people move into new jobs without an occasional gaffe, but the important thing is to weather the transition and get your agency or department headed in the right direction. Peter H. Daly, Michael Watkins and Cate Reavis' book should prove a major asset for anyone entering government service, or anyone who has received a promotion and is moving into the big corner office with all the headaches that come with it. The book could benefit from a more detailed discussion on coping with the uniquely dysfunctional character of most government bureaucracies, but we strongly recommend its rational approach. It is particularly useful in describing pitfalls to avoid.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
