  • Avoiding Disappointment presents a unique approach to public sector strategic planning that conveys the author’s personal experiences with government leaders who sought to transform the government agencies that they were entrusted to lead. This approach has been used by dozens of government agencies whose experiences are chronicled throughout the book. Part 1 focuses on the CSF approach and its implementation. Part 2 includes a brief case study of six very successful leaders of high-level government agencies, the issues they faced, and how the process set forth in the book provided the means to overcome them.

  • A must reading for leaders of public agencies who are seeking to begin a new strategic planning initiative or revise an existing one for their organization.
