Beyond Delivery sets out a critique of the dirigiste and mechanical ways in which some policy makers seek to exercise governance over the implementation of their policies. It offers a timely critique of the current British government's approach. The book argues that the result of the effort to achieve greater central control through targets and inspection has undermined and failed to cultivate the long term organizational capabilities upon which the capacity for effective policy implementation depends.
