Entrepreneurial Government


Definition: Entrepreneurial Government is a government philosophy strongly resembling that of for profit companies, arguing that government instutions can and must compete with for-profit businesses, nonprofit agencies, and other units of government.
David Osborn en Ted Gaebler argued that an EG should be:
- Catalytic. Steering rather than rowing.
- Community-owned. Empowering rather than serving.
- Competitive.
- Mission-driven. Transforming rule-driven organizations.
- Results-oriented. Funding outcomes, not inputs.
- Customer-driven.
- Enterprising. Earning rather than spending.
- Anticipatory. Prevention rather than cure.
- Decentralized. From hierarchy towards participation
