About this title


Polite Revolutionary is a reflection on Bob Stone's thirty years as a revolutionary in government, twenty-four at the Pentagon and six at the White House leading Al Gore's initiative to reinvent government.

He ran into bureaucracy and into greatness in government. This book is about both, and about how leaders can move their organizations from one to the other.

The book will be useful to anyone in, or considering entering, public service. It tells Bob's entertaining story, organized in fifteen main themes, each the subject of a chapter. The chapters are arranged in a rough chronological order: the book starts with Bob's entrance into public service without a clue about what to expect. It describes his "re-education" as he unlearns practically everything he thought he knew about management. It goes on to describe colorfully his experience at the White House running Al Gore's reinventing government project, and ends by summing up what he learned about leadership.

About the Author:

Bob Stone spent six years leading the White House project to spread trust, empowerment, and customer service throughout the U.S. government. He was recruited by Vice President Gore in 1993 from the Pentagon, where he started a quality revolution, radically decentralized authority, improved the standard of living for military men and women, and was acclaimed by Tom Peters as one of the top public sector managers in America. Bob is now a partner in the Public Strategies Group, Inc., America's leading consultancy specializing in helping governments in the U.S., and around the world to reform themselves.
