Historically, transforming state government meant restructuring or reorganizing the executive branch or a single agency. However, these approaches are no longer seen as effective. State government must become more flexible and responsive to the rapidly changing environment in which they operate. The four transformation strategies recommended in this report can be acted upon in a relatively short period of time without investing a great deal of additional resources and without partisan debates. They are based on the assumption that states can transform themselves by using best practices developed and tested by other states as starting points. The four strategies that author Keon Chi says can transform state governance are: anticipatory governance, results-focused governance, collaborative governance, and transparent governance.
