  • Product Description

    Michigan Rehabilitation Services had a virtual monopoly on providing rehabilitation counseling to people with disabilities in the state. When suddenly faced with private sector competition, the agency lost virtually all of its market share. Part A explores the agency director's decision whether to compete with the private sector. Issues here include the need for a public sector alternative to the private sector, duplication of effort, and potential implementation problems. Part B reveals the decision to compete and discusses resulting implementation issues.
