Larry Berman discusses the efforts of three presidentially appointed advisory groups in trying to improve management practices within the executive branch. He contends that in all these efforts, the Bureau of the Budget obstructed proposed changes in the Executive Office of the President because it wished to preserve its post-1939 status as first among equals.
