Bihar‘s Exposure to Innovative Governance Practices
The first chapter briefly describes governance experiences in the State of Bihar, explains the concept of governance capacity in Bihar’s context, and illustrates how governance capacity can be dramatically improved.
Chapter 2 briefly reviews global innovations in governance and the evolution of what hascome to be known as New Public Management (NPM) that was initially a response to governance failures in the West, but now has come to be practised widely also in the Third World. NPM is suitable for states like Bihar as it is designed, with appropriate local adaptations, to yield much better performance accountability, citizen service and satisfaction, productivity and quality of public services, and a continuing stream of improvements and innovations.
