SPG teammembers are working on a third volume called: Guardians of Value: How Public Organizations Institutionalize, Adapt and Thrive. This volume builds on and reinvigorates a scholarly tradition of learning from successful organizations. The detailed but compact case studies, written by expert authors, will provide insights for practitioners, scholars, and students alike. The collection allows for broad, pattern-finding comparisons and lend themselves to classroom use by providing vivid narratives.
