Learning on the Job: An Analysis of Clinton's First Presidential Term

The following is an analysis of Bill Clinton's leadership and management during his first term as President. Clinton's effectiveness as a leader hinges on how well he balances his responsiveness to public attitudes with direction and discipline in formulating his policies. During the first term, there were two radically different political environments and after a difficult first two years, Clinton adapted his leadership and management techniques to create a more effective presidency. Clinton is never at a loss for policy ideas, but his leadership will be remembered positively only if he can lead an organized administration to communicate, legislate, and implement those policies.
