Prestigious Public Administration Award

Preparing for the Future: Strategic Planning in the U.S. Air ForcePrestigious Public Administration Award Presented to Book on Strategic Planning

Preparing for the Future: Strategic Planning in the U.S. Air Force , by Michael Barzelay and Colin Campbell, has received the National Academy of Public Administration 2004 Louis Brownlow Book Award. The book is a treatise on how an organization faced with uncertain risk gets better every day. What one will like about Preparing for the Future is the fact that it is an engaging story, one whose relevance extends well beyond readers who are interested in the Air Force or national security. It has profound implications for all levels of government and for any organization wrestling seriously with its future.

SOG Workshop - Oslo, 15/16 September 2011

« The Future of the Regulatory State: Adaptation, Transformation, Or Demise? »
BI School of Management Oslo

One of the most widely made claims over the past three decades has been that we are living in the age of the regulatory state. However, events such as the financial crisis have pointed to potential weaknesses in the 'orthodoxies' that underpinned the ideas of the regulatory state. This workshop therefore intends to discuss the future of the regulatory state. We are interested in papers that explore themes, such as

    the limits of regulatory regimes
    the limits of market-based problem-solving
    the limits of national regulatory capacity

Organizers : Nick Sitter (BI School of Management) and Martin Lodge (LSE)
