Esri Releases Smarter Government Book by Martin O’Malley

REDLANDS, Calif.- Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced the publication of a new book by former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley, Smarter Government: How to Govern for Results in the Information Age. The book proposes new ideas about leadership and applying technology in a way that encourages openness and public collaboration.

“In addition to addressing specific issues of streets, air quality, education, and crime, [O’Malley] shows us how to combine governing, leading, and managing,” says Stephen Goldsmith, director of the Innovations in American Government Program at the Harvard Kennedy School. “These lessons will be broadly important to our cities and states today where so many residents depend on high-quality, honest governance.”

Smarter Government is a discussion and demonstration of a fundamentally entrepreneurial way of governing that’s about the data, mapping, and method for achieving dramatic public sector progress. According to O’Malley, government should work to make complex problems more transparent while delivering better outcomes and results. Smarter Government makes the case for a new and better way of governing that is simple, demonstrable, and understandable for every citizen.

O’Malley’s book also includes study and discussion questions and links to online exercises for readers to experience these tech-enabled methods.

Smarter Government: How to Govern for Results in the Information Age is available in print (ISBN: 9781589485242, 332 pages, US$39.99) and as an e-book (ISBN: 9781589485259, US$39.99). Both editions can be obtained from most online retailers worldwide. The print edition is also available for purchase at esri.com/esripress or by calling 1-800-447-9778.
