Reforms of public policy often require governments to convince private actors to cooperate with each other. Through a comparison of vocational training reforms undertaken in France and Germany, this chapter demonstrates the conditions under which governments can succeed in such an economic reform. Lacking the information necessary to design policies that can solve these problems of coordination, governments must work with private associations that have access to this information in order to design policies that convince private actors to begin cooperating with each other.
