Today, transformation is on the agenda of governments throughout the world. Why? Simply and persuasively, it is increasingly clear that nations can no longer rest on their competitive laurels. The rapid growth and emergence of the new economic
powerhouses of India, China, Brazil and Russia demonstrate the shifting sands of competitive power. The simple truth is that countries can no longer take economic supremacy or even progression for granted.

To some extent, what is now happening with government mirrors what has already happened with the private sector in many countries. Amid the turbulence of recent times, how corporations are run has been questioned and examined from every angle. As a result, many have transformed themselves from slow-moving behemoths to nimble global operators. Others have bitten the
corporate dust.
 
At the heart of this book, and smart transformation, is the idea that government along with corporations must take responsibility for finding a balanced business model; one that meets the needs of shareholders as well as other stakeholders, such as
employees, customers and local communities. Leading Smart Transformation describes a holistic, rapid, flexible, dynamic approach, where leadership is integral to the process, stakeholders are fully engaged, and last but not least, the transformation
programme is well planned with a clear roadmap linking the various components of the cycle.

Review:

'This book is an incisive and constructive assault on the ultimate immune system - Government Incorporated.' - David Peters, Managing Partner, CEO & Board Practice, EMEA, Heidrick & Struggles, London, UK

'This book offers crucial insights into the strategies of the most effective governments in the world, drawing on decades of research and experience. Representing the best of the East and West, this book should be required reading for public servants everywhere.' - Dalia Mogahed, Director, The Abu Dhabi Gallup Center, Appointed in 2009 by President Obama to the White House Faith based and Neighborhood Partnership Advisory Council

'This book is a must read for anyone wanting to make a difference in government. The focus on leadership and transformation is just what is needed. I can only hope that the right people read it!' - Frank Brown, Dean, INSEAD, Paris, Singapore, Abu Dhabi

'Leading Smart Transformation is an important book for managers in leading positions and a must-read for anyone working in public sector reform. This is a timely addition to the literature on public sector reforms. With its clear, hands-on approach, it is bound to become the reference book of choice for practitioners across the globe.' - Alexander Fisher, Managing Director / Member of the Executive Board at the DIW Berlin

'This book is very well written, especially when compared with the many treatises on management. It has the advantage of minimal academic jargon and makes extensive use of examples, including quotations from interviews with key actors involved in transforming governmental organizations. I recommend it for both practitioners and students of public administration.' - Victor H. Vroom, BearingPoint Professor of Management and Professor of Psychology. Yale School of Management

'A new look at re-designing government. No more sterile public and political administration, but a practical, insightful leadership way forward.' - Farhad Analoui, Professor, International Development and Human Resource Management, Bradford University UK

'Achieving the "smart" state? This well-written book is a vital road map for policy enablers and the catalytic power of leadership in smart-government transitions - a must read for all civil servants, especially for sceptics of the role of government.' - Alexander Kouzmin, Professor of Management, Southern Cross University, Australia

'This book provokes readers with insightful perspectives on building change-ready skills among leaders in the 21st century.' - Professor Peter Steane PhD, Associate Dean International, Faculty of Business, Australian Catholic University, North Sydney, Australia

'This long awaited text provides powerful insights into how leaders can transform government from within or from the outside... an absolute read for politicians, civil servants, consultants and business leaders alike.' - Rosemary Howard, Director, Executive Development, Australian Graduate School of Management, Australia

'A rare gem. A call to action and a plan for action rolled into one.' - Prof. Robert Galavan BA (Mgmt.), Dip. (Strat.), MA (Ad. Ed.), PhD, Chair in Strategic Management, Head of School, School of Business and Law, National University of Ireland Maynooth, Ireland

'Powerfully illuminating, a timely prescription for how we govern in the emerging 21st Century world.' - Kalu N. Kalu, Professor of Political Science, Auburn University Montgomery, USA

'This book is very timely. The world is changing fast and it is crucial for public sector to respond and to learn to make decisions in a rapidly evolving environment. Private sector is evolving rapidly. Those who cannot adjust are eliminated thru the creative destruction of markets. Governments and public policy makers always face challenges much more complex than those in private sector. Unlike corporations, governments have to achieve more than one and sometimes conflicting objectives. If the public sector does not respond to the changing world, the whole society faces the danger of stagnation. This book provides very useful insights for policy makers from the successful private sector experiences in managing the change for organizations.' - Professor N. Bulent Gultekin the current Wharton Professor and the previous Governor, Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey, 1993; Chief Adviser, to the Ministry of Privatization, Poland, 1990-91

'As expected Leading Smart Transformation is the sort of intriguing, multifaceted approach, I have come to expect from projects offered by Andrew Kakabadse, Mohammad Omar Abdulla, Rabih Abouchakra and Ali Qassim Jawad. This piece is no exception as it has the potential to inform organization development, leadership, and contemporary literature on the public sector, offering quality, depth, and breadth of topical exploration.' - Arthur Sementelli, Assistant Director, School of Public Administration Florida Atlantic University
