National polling indicates that, for the first time in American history, people believe their children will not be as well off as they are. Even more alarming, is that many Americans believe the biggest problem facing our nation today is government itself. The public sector receives trillions of taxpayer dollars every year, and yet because of its inability to operate effectively, government fails to deliver the quality of service we are paying for. It is clear the American people are weary of paying Ritz Carlton-level taxes for Bates Motel-quality government. In Saving America, Mark Aesch tells us where government—at the local, state, and federal level—is falling short and offers a coherent, non-partisan, seven-step plan for rebuilding our nation’s public agencies. The book is not a political broadside nor is it theoretical; instead, it’s an inspirational and instructional framework that will help citizens, elected officials, and public administrators make American government great—and provide taxpayers with real value. The 7 Steps to Success will lead to measurable gains for organizations large and small, including school systems, municipal governments, entire states, and even the federal government itself, producing real results for taxpayers and consumers.

Driving Excellence tells the inspiring story of one man who, with no formal business training, turned an entire industry on its head. Mark Aesch proves that we really can run government like a business, and provide value to taxpayers and shareholders alike. When Aesch took over the Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority in 2004, it was operating with a 27.7-million-dollar deficit, and was poised to raise fares, lay off employees, and slash service. Under Aesch's leadership, those deficits have been eradicated and replaced with multimillion-dollar surpluses; reliance on taxpayer subsidies has been reduced; demand for service has increased at rates three times the national average; and in an unprecedented move, the fare at the Authority's two largest subsidiaries were actually reduced. In Driving Excellence, Aesch shows readers how to create a culture built around selflessness rather than ego, and get employees invested in saving the company. In describing the transition from an ailing business to one that enjoys stunning success--lower fares, multi-million surpluses, and the highest ridership and customer satisfaction levels in twenty years--Aesch offers powerful principles that any organization can implement to achieve exceptional results.

In a joint effort between the National Academy of Engineering and the Institute of Medicine, this books attempts to bridge the knowledge/awareness divide separating health care professionals from their potential partners in systems engineering and related disciplines. The goal of this partnership is to transform the U.S. health care sector from an underperforming conglomerate of independent entities (individual practitioners, small group practices, clinics, hospitals, pharmacies, community health centers et. al.) into a high performance "system" in which every participating unit recognizes its dependence and influence on every other unit. By providing both a framework and action plan for a systems approach to health care delivery based on a partnership between engineers and health care professionals, Building a Better Delivery System describes opportunities and challenges to harness the power of systems-engineering tools, information technologies and complementary knowledge in social sciences, cognitive sciences and business/management to advance the U.S. health care system.
