The Centrelink experiment : innovation in service delivery by J Halligan( )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Centrelink was established in 1997 as part of the Howard government's bold experiment in re-framing social policy and re-shaping service delivery. Centrelink was the embodiment of a key tenet of the Howard vision for public service: a specialised service delivery 'provider' agency separated from the policy functions of the 'purchaser'. Carved out of a monolithic Department of Social Security, Centrelink was established along 'business lines' operating 320 service centres and delivering payments to 10 million Australians. Although enjoying 'monopoly provider' status, the organisation was required to deliver services to many different clients on behalf of its 'purchasing departments' (up to 25 in total) under the terms of quasi-contractual service agreements. It was meant to demonstrate a greater level of both transparency and accountability for the administration of payments amounting to over $$60 billion of Commonwealth expenditure. For many years there was a real 'buzz' around the Centrelink experiment and staff and clients were generally enthusiastic about the transformation. However, after around eight years, the experiment was reined in and Centrelink was placed under closer ministerial direction and under a new managing department. The experiment continues, but its trajectory reflects the different pressures impacting on such dedicated 'services delivery agencies'

Managing performance : international comparisons by Geert Bouckaert( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this important new text, the viability of performance management in public sector organisations is systematically assessed across a number of international case studies. The book provides a framework through which models of performance management can be understood in terms of both their impact within a public sector organisation, and the effects that have been seen in countries with contrasting administrational contexts." "Managing Performance - International comparisons critically examines the effects of performance management models in the public sector, and assesses their future evolution. It is an important book for all students and researchers with an interest in management, public administration and public policy."--Jacket
Political leadership in an age of constraint : the Australian experience by Colin Campbell( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Commonwealth bureaucracy under Labor has undergone dramatic change. It has had a new managerial model thrust upon it aimed partly at strengthening the central agencies which implement economic policies. This major restructuring of government administration is an attempt to ensure the implementation of economic priorities - a response to fiscal stress. This book analyses how senior bureaucrats are functioning under these conditions and how effectively the central co-ordinating roles are being preformed." "Based on interviews with senior public servants in central agencies, Political Leadership in an Age of Constraint provides a unique insight into the administrative processes and patterns of behaviour of Australia's top bureaucrats. This is a study of how senior bureaucrats cope with policy changes which threaten long established practices and is a 'first hand' account of the reform program. The book uncovers the relationship between our political leaders and the bureaucracy. It offers a unique perspective on the exercise of government under Labor."--Jacket
Reforming public and corporate governance : management and the market in Australia, Britain, and Korea( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reform of public sector governance is a well-established global trend, both in government and business, as countries move from traditional bureaucracies to management modelled on the private sector. This text offers a comparison of contemporary developments drawing on two of the leading innovators - the UK and Australia, and on one of the classic East Asian administrative systems in Korea. It has a parallel comparison with reform of the governance of the business corporation and the "read across" from change in the private sector to change in the public sector. Also identified are the ways in which the reforms taking place have been influenced by international models. The authors, academics in Australia, Britain and Korea, base their ananlysis on original research. The book's main sections deal with private sector management, privatization and public enterprises, corporate governance and government-business relations. Conclusions are drawn regarding possible future policy and changing trajectories of reform as well as about the content, success and extent of national reforms in a global setting
Australian handbook of public sector management by Chris Aulich( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The traditional view of public sector management is under challenge. The shifting boundaries of the public-private sector are changing the nature of the public sector in the 21st century, and placing increasing demands on managers. This user-friendly handbook examines the changes that have taken place over the last twenty years and addresses the practical issues faced by public servants today. It makes abundant use of exhibits, case studies and real world examples to illustrate key concepts in public sector management. By including many 'points for reference', the authors challenge readers to apply both theory and practice to those public services situations with which they are familiar. This book is a unique blend of academic and practical approaches to current management practices in the public sector. It has been designed to assist students and those new to the public sector to develop the knowledge and skills they require to provide high quality public services

Performance management in the public sector by Wouter van Dooren( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In times of rising expectations and decreasing resources for the public sector, performance management is high on the agenda. Increasingly, the value of the performance management systems themselves is under scrutiny, with more attention being paid to the effectiveness of performance management in practice. This new edition of Performance Management in the Public Sector explores performance, as well as performance measurement, and making performance information useful for management. The book includes: - situates performance in some of the current public management debates, including some emerging discussions on the new public governance and neo-Weberianism; - discusses the many definitions of performance and how it has become one of the most contested agendas of public management; - examines the use as well as the non-use of performance information; - conveys a nuanced discussion of the so-called perverse effects of using performance indicators; - discusses the technicalities of performance measurement in a five step process: prioritising measurement, indicator development, data collection, analysis and reporting; and - explores the challenges and future directions of performance management Performance Management in the Public Sector 2nd edition offers an approachable insight into a complex theme for practitioners and students alike. For scholars, the book directs attention to key research issues, most pressingly the use of performance information"--Del editor
