It considers the common mistakes made, and how these can be avoided, as well as analysing the strztegy governments can use to meet their goals, from targets and behavior change programs, to innovation and risk management.


Written by Geoff Mulgan, a former head of policy for the UK prime minister, and advisor to governments round the world, it is packed with examples, and shaped by the author’s practical experience.
