Abstract:The adoption of 'Imihigo' as a new tool for public policy implementation emerged from the persistent observation that the existing bureaucratic system continued to react - in slow motion - while the improvements promised by the government required more responsiveness. Although originally, its initiators conceived this new system as a home-grown solution, based on empirical findings, this article shows that it evolved in the form of a hybrid model relying on two opposite mechanisms to increase public service delivery: the spirit of emulation of local leaders rooted in tradition and the external control of performance rooted in the new public management philosophy.
