Teaching and learning with cases : a guidebook by Laurence E Lynn( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and Chinese and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on experiences from a range of fields, including public administration, policy analysis, law, teacher training, ethics, and undergraduate education, this book is intended to be a practical, process-oriented guide to teaching, writing, and learning with cases. The guide is organized into four parts: (1) "Teaching with Cases: Principles" (concerned with the different meanings of the term "case method" in various domains of teaching, with sources of resistance to case teaching, and with strategic issues teachers face in deciding what and how to teach); (2) "Teaching with Cases: Techniques" (concerned with the practice of case teaching ranging from the basics to the more advanced "tricks of the trade" practiced by experienced instructors; content could be covered in a case teaching workshop of three to five days in length); (3) "Curriculum Planning" (describes the types of cases available and provides guidelines for selecting appropriate cases to use for teaching); (4) "Case Writing" (approaches case writing as the subject might be handled in a case writing workshop designed to produce usable new cases). An appendix contains a teaching case, a teaching note, and a case analysis. References include a selected bibliography of case teaching and case learning guides and literature, case catalogs, and on-line resources. (Bt)
Madison's managers : public administration and the Constitution by Anthony Michael Bertelli( Book )

12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combining insights from traditional thought and practice and from contemporary political analysis, Madison's Managers presents a constitutional theory of public administration in the United States. Anthony Michael Bertelli and Laurence E. Lynn Jr. contend that managerial responsibility in American government depends on official respect for the separation of powers and a commitment to judgment, balance, rationality, and accountability in managerial practice. The authors argue that public management & mdash;administration by unelected officials of public agencies and activities based on authority delegated to them by policymakers & mdash;derives from the principles of American constitutionalism, articulated most clearly by James Madison. Public management is, they argue, a constitutional institution necessary to successful governance under the separation of powers. To support their argument, Bertelli and Lynn combine two intellectual traditions often regarded as antagonistic: modern political economy, which regards public administration as controlled through bargaining among the separate powers and organized interests, and traditional public administration, which emphasizes the responsible implementation of policies established by legislatures and elected executives while respecting the procedural and substantive rights enforced by the courts. These literatures are mutually reinforcing, the authors argue, because both feature the role of constitutional principles in public management. Madison's Managers challenges public management scholars and professionals to recognize that the legitimacy and future of public administration depend on its constitutional foundations and their specific implications for managerial practice
The art of governance : analyzing management and administration( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume takes relational concept into new realms of conceptualization and application as it links alternative institutional and administrative structures to program performance in different policy areas and levels of government. Collectively, the contributors begin to paint a new picture of how management matters throughout the policy process. They illuminate how, at different levels of an organization, leadership and management vary - and explore both the significance of structural systems and the importance of alternative organizational forms for the implementation of public policies." "The Art of Governance shows that effective governance is much more complex than paint-by-number, but if the variety of forms and models of governance are analyzed using advanced theories, models, methods, and data, important lessons can be applied that can lead to more successful institutions."--Jacket

Public management : a three-dimensional approach by Carolyn J Hill( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Managing in the public sector entails an understanding of the interaction between three distinct dimensions--administrative structures and processes, organizations and their cultures, and the skills and values of individual managers. Public managers must produce results that citizens and their representatives expect from their government while balancing these concerns within a constitutional scheme of governance. In Public Management, authors Carolyn J. Hill and Laurence E. Lynn, Jr. show that constructing critical analyses and persuasive arguments is the principal tool for effectively managing in three dimensions. Students learn how to analyze and explain managerial strategies and decisions, critically assessing real world case studies and building their own arguments. Four unique features further the book's approach and reinforce practical learning: Rule of Law boxes showcase how public managers are affected by statutes, regulations, and court decisions. ; Concepts in Action boxes show how sense-making, deliberation and decision making are common features in everyday news stories, opinion pieces, and government reports. ; How the World Works boxes aptly illustrate how human nature creates conundrums, irony, and surprise in the practice of public management--a reminder that theory cannot fully explain the variety and complexity of human and organizational behavior. ; Analysis and Argument sections at the end of every chapter guide students in case analysis and help them build the elements of an argument (Claim, Reason, Evidence, Warrant, Acknowledgment and Response)."--Publisher's website
