Description

The complex problems of the twenty-first century cannot be effectively addressed with twentieth century top-down bureaucratic governance alone because of limited stakeholder participation in collective decision making and/or implementation.The somewhat limited stakeholder participation in the policy process,especially,that of target populations,can impact generating viable solutions to complex problems.This book uses collaborative governance concept to underscore its promising alternative to traditional management in addressing contemporary complex problems by drawing on the experiences of two HIV Health Services Planning Councils in South Florida.The book highlights how critical facilitative leadership,institutional design,trust building,commitment to the process, shared understanding,consensus and empowerment is to generating outputs and/or outcomes for collective problem solving.The book provides a conceptual framework for examining collaborative endeavors in developed and developing countries to help create value for society.The book is an enlightening read for policymakers,advocates,scholars,students and practitioners of public and health administration.
