Government at work : best practices and model programs by Marc Holzer( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 1998 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents persuasive arguments in support of public service and those who work within it. The authors argue that some services are only appropriate to government control: public safety, highways, armed and emergency services, parks, and public schools. Other services are operated/undertaken by government in response to problems that society and the private sector have failed to solve: housing, transportation, clean air and water, and so on. In both instances, the public sector requires complex problem-solving processes - never simple solutions - and, despite the negative images of (bumbling) bureaucrats imprinted on the public consciousness, Government at Work shows how public servants do difficult jobs well

Developments in strategic and public management : studies in the US and Europe by Paul Joyce( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through up-to-date studies of public services, an outstanding cast of contributors provide in-depth and innovative perspectives on the state of strategic public management in the USA and Europe. Collectively, these compelling case studies offer profound insights into the emergence of strategic management practices and capabilities at both the national and sub-national level. Moreover, the individual contributions also investigate the nexus between strategic planning and other public management systems alongside the strategic dimension of networks and partnerships. This volume shows that strategic management, far from being simply a disciplined approach to long-term decisions, has become a central feature of public organisations at large in the US and Europe. The result is a collection that is essential reading for all students and scholars of public management and administration (site de l'éditeur)
