A new way of governing is emerging across America—and around the world. Smarter cities are the leading edge of this movement, and states and nations are following suit. In this book, former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley draws on his deep experience and lays out a blueprint for others to follow. Data-driven decision-making, improved customer service, and collaborative circles of caring people focused on the latest emerging truth—these are the new ways of governing.
