Welcome to Competitive Government


Competitive Government is the new philosophy of government. It provides the framework for reform and continual renewal that government otherwise lacks. Government has a unique position in every society, but it is this primary role that makes it extremely vulnerable to under-performance.


Governments suffer from the failings of monopoly, however, for various reasons the regulatory functions that legislatures should perform, are insufficient to deliver corrective action.


As a result countries get stuck with policies and programs that are outdated and inefficient. Society moves on but government far from leading, falls further and further behind. The power of government is diminished and dissipated, its resources and potential wasted, the opportunities for improvement lost. Improving the performance of government is the “elephant in the room” when it comes to tackling the issues of national decline, and seeking ways to generate new prosperity and economic growth


The fundamental challenge is making sure that all government programs are as effective as possible in realizing their objectives. This can be achieved by comparing, contrasting and learning from the best practices of other governments and corporations. The concept of value is at the heart of competitive government. Analyzing, testing and delivering are crucial elements. Successful governments focus on where they can best add value.
