This book describes how policy workers and administrators of local councils and non-profit organisations can contribute to a social domain in which the people’s strengths are better utilized within the framework of the Social Support Act (Wmo). The book is built up around the three assignments a government sees itself faced with: - The transformation from less of a system world to more of a lifeworld. - The transformation from ‘steering’ in a less top-down to a more bottom-up way. - The transformation from less deductive to more inductive learning and development. In this book they describe how representatives of steering force can contribute to this transformation. In their conclusion, the authors state these representatives cannot ultimately fulfill the role of director in the transformation of the social domain geared to the strengths in the lifeworld. They can help to make the transformation less dependent on ‘higher powers’. The authors end their book with recommendations and suggestions for further research on the topic of WMO. This book is a translated version of “Outreachend besturen in tijden van transitie”, published by Movisie.
