by June Gwee
This book is a collection of case studies on the development of institutions in Singapore. Each has been carefully selected to profile a particular sector: urban governance, education, social security, and industrial relations. These case studies highlight the importance of culture, leadership, and systems in building institutions. They demonstrate how interactions between people — leaders and employees — and the organizations they belong to may influence institutional culture.
