♥ Book Title : Ethics and Accountability in a Context of Governance and New Public Management
☯ Full Synopsis : "Ethics and accountability have become important themes for modern government, as in most of the countries there is a severe crisis of legitimacy. Increasingly there is a feeling that performance management alone will not solve this crisis. Citizens also expect from politicians and public servants ethical responsible conduct. As to the ethics, however, there is a problem. Governance and new public management have raised new problems which cannot be solved by referring to the traditional bureaucratic ethics. Devolution and decentralisation processes have enhanced the responsibility of public servants. The increase of transparency and openness and the service orientation of public organisations have challenged the traditional values of discretion and equality before the rule. The growing interaction between the public and the private sector have raised the question of integrity. In light of these developments, it is important to update the ethical system, or reversibly, the traditional values of the public service can question some actual evolutions in government."Article| Annie Hondeghem| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The New Public Management in Action
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book analyses changes which have occurred in the organization and management of the UK public services over the last 15 years, looking particularly at the restructured NHS. The authors present an up-to-date analysis around three main themes: the transfer of private sector models to the public sector, the management of change in the public sector, and management reorganization and role change. In doing so they examine to what extent a New Public Management has emerged, and ask whether this is a parochial UK development or of wider international significance. This is a topical and important issue in management training, professional, and policy circles. Important analytic themes include: an analysis of the nature of the change process in the UK public services, characterization of quasi markets, the changing role of local Boards, and possible adaptation by professional groupings. The book also addresses the important and controversial question of accountability, and contributes to the development of a general theory of the New Public Management."Article| Professor of Public Services Management Ewan Ferlie| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Public Management
☯ Full Synopsis : "Since the 1980s, the public sector throughout the Western industrialized world, the transitional economies of Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America and South East Asia has undergone major changes. The main thrust of these changes has been to bring public sector management practices closer to those of the private sector. This raises the question of how far public and private sector management are comparable. This comprehensive five volume set examines the relationships between public and private sector management in terms of both classical management theory and the new public management that emerged in the 1980s and 1990s. While the collection concentrates on articles from the last twenty years, some historical pieces are also included, and a detailed index is also provided. Individual volume introductions as well as a general introduction place the articles in their historical context, making this an invaluable public management reference."Article| Stephen P. Osborne| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : New Public Governance, the Third Sector, and Co-Production
☯ Full Synopsis : "In recent years public management research in a variety of disciplines has paid increasing attention to the role of citizens and the third sector in the provision of public services. Several of these efforts have employed the concept of co-production to better understand and explain this trend. This book aims to go further by systematizing the growing body of academic papers and reports that focus on various aspects of co-production and its potential contribution to new public governance. It has an interdisciplinary focus that makes a unique contribution to the body of knowledge in this field, at the cross-roads of a number of disciplines - including business administration, policy studies, political science, public management, sociology, third sector studies, etc. The unique presentation of them together in this volume both allows for comparing and contrasting these different perspectives and for potential theoretical collaboration and development. More particularly, this volume addresses the following concerns: What is the nature of co-production and what challenges does it face? How can we conceptualize the concept of co-production? How does co-production works in practice? How does co-production unfold in reality? What can be the effects of co-production? And more specific, firstly, how can co-production contribute to service quality and service management in public services, and secondly, what is the input of co-production on growing citizen involvement and development of participative democracy?"Article| Victor Pestoff| Statement ..."
