Editors: Van R. Johnston (University of Denver)
Book Description:
The business and public policy arena began a paradigm shift towards more competition and efficiency about 1980. The lure of innovation, creativity and more freedom captured our spirit. Deregulation, privatization, contracting out, franchising, reengineering and reinventing followed. Entrepreneurial management was thriving.

Along the way dysfunctions of excessive competition and efficiency became increasingly apparent. In the world of business, public policy and finance, we had to deal with the savings and loan crisis which many argue cost taxpayers $500 B. Then came: Enron, Andersen, Worldcom, Tyco, Global Crossing, Qwest, Adelphia and more. Increasing standards have been applied to control these problems, such as new legislation like Sarbanes-Oxley and McCain Feingold, and legal actions like those of Elliot Spitzer in New York and Attorneys General in other states as well.

Our seeming passion to save a few dollars with efficiency management led to overuse of under trained Argenbright and Wackenhut security screeners at airports contributing in part to the terrorism disaster of 9-11. Implementing more effectiveness and collaboration oriented organizations to enhance security and safety was realized with the development of the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

FEMA’s collapse with Hurricane Katrina is an example of abandoning the effectiveness and collaboration emphases that had made FEMA a strong organization not long before. Overemphasizing efficiency at the time of Katrina became a model for organizational collapse.

The authors in the first edition of this book were contacted and given an opportunity to update their material or decline to be included in the second edition.
They all reviewed and modified their material as appropriate. Several new authors and their manuscripts were also added.

This second edition has changes by the following. Al Hyde and Dorothy Olshfski have a chapter on Service Quality in the Internet Economy. Linda de Leon has added Enron, Andersen and similar cases to her Ethics and Entrepreneurship chapter. Arie Halachmi has substantially increased his chapter on Agency Theory and Transaction Analysis. And Bill Waugh has updated his chapter dealing with perceptions of evil from hurricanes to his chapter dealing with university governance. Van Johnston and Claire-Lauren Shultz have a new chapter on Hurricane Katrina and FEMA. Chapters on Entrepreneurial Budgeting, Information Technology and Reinventing Government by Tom Lynch with his colleagues Peter Cruz and Cynthia Lynch; and on Privatization by Paul Seidenstat;
And on Optimizing Productivity through Privatization and Entrepreneurial Management by Johnston remain much as they were, and provide a solid base for the rest of the book

An addition that brings a new dimension to the book is a chapter on The Greening of Industry Through Government Supervised Self Regulation by Dan Mazmanian and Daniel Press. Dan Mazmanian is the current President of NASPAA and the Bedrosian Chair in Governance at the University of Southern California. He is also the former Dean of the School of Policy, Planning and Development at USC. Daniel Press is Professor and Chair of Environmental Studies at UC Santa Cruz.

The Second Edition of ENTREPRENEURIAL MANAGEMENT AND PUBLIC POLICY also has a new Part IV featuring a new chapter by Wendy Haynes, President of the American society for Public Administration, and her colleague Robert Wright. Haynes and Wright use the new Entrepreneurial Management and Public Policy Integrative Model developed for this edition of the book for an extraordinary analysis of the development of the Department of Homeland Security.

In the final chapter, Johnston develops the integrative Entrepreneurial Management and Public Policy Model and applies it to: NASA (the Challenger and Columbia disasters; Terrorism (1993 World Trade Center attack and the 9-11 disaster); business, public policy and finance (the S & L Bailout and the Enron, Andersen et al financial ethics collapse; and FEMA (the Northridge Earthquake and Hurricane Katrina).

The Model is then adjusted to demonstrate how moving from extreme efficiency towards more effectiveness, and from extreme competition towards more collaboration can provide more professional and more productive organizational performance in the 21st century.

The four parts of the Second Edition of ENTREPRENEURIAL MANAGEMENT AND PUBLIC POLICY now are as follows.
