Summary "PPP: Fast-tracking Performance in Public Services presents a fresh and wide-ranging review of the core issues behind the debate. It captures the experiences and insight of practitioners at the forefront of the first wave of PPP programmes, research and analysis from leading academics who have studied the performance of PPPs, and critical views from advocates and opponents of the concept. In doing so, this volume systematically explores a number of key issues of practical concern to managers, including how to assess the appropriateness of PPP, how to build successful PPPs, the scope and feasibility of private finance initiatives, and finding the right partners. The book also examines the development of PPP beyond the UK's borders."--BOOK JACKET
