  Conversation with Christopher Ansell, author of Pragmatist Democracy: Evolutionary Learning as Public Philosophy  
(Greater Washington DC Metro Area)

Listening to Compstat: Reform in Theory and Practice, is a conversation with Christopher Ansell, author of Pragmatist Democracy: Evolutionary Learning as Public Philosophy (Oxford, 2011) and guests Robert Shea, principal, Grant Thornton LLP; and Greg Useem, chief performance officer, City of Alexandria, VA.

Compstat and its variants, from Baltimore's Citistat to the Enviornmental Proctection Agency's now defunct EPAstat, are shaping reform initiatives across public organizations. In his book, Ansell contends that under certain conditions, stat-model initiatives promote publicly-minded problem solving and ultimately a sense of shared purpose.

Ansel, Shea, and Useem will discuss Compstat's promise and prospects. What accounts for Compstat's appeal? What factors shape stat-model initiatives in practice? What do stat-model initiatives tell us about broader public sector reforms focused on improving measurement and anaylsis?
