Public value and public administration by John M Bryson( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public administration practitioners and scholars around the globe are paying considerable attention to the creation of public value and to the health of the public sphere. However, there is little agreement about how to define public value and know if it is being achieved. Some definitions of public value focus on organizational effectiveness, efficiency, and accountability. Other definitions stress going beyond these qualities to also emphasize protecting and enhancing citizen rights and mutual obligations between the public and private sectors to society. This book explores competing visions of public value and what it means to discern, measure, and assess the creation of public value in a world where most major public challenges require contributions from governments, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and communities. In this book, scholars from the US, Europe, and Australia present an overview of major issues and debates focused on the skills, methods, measurements, and processes related to creating public value. This book is essential reading for public administration scholars, students, and practitioners
Politics, power and personality : the roles of deans in dean's grant projects by Carol R Sivage( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The four papers in this volume address questions raised by the Dean's Grants Program. Among the themes addressed are the potential of deans to fulfill the role of change agent, techniques used in decision making and exercising authority, and faculty members' and deans' perceptions of the dean's role. Carole R. Sivage, in "Advocates of Change: An Analysis of Deans' Roles as Directors of Dean's Grant Projects" presents the results of interviews conducted at 10 institutions receiving Dean's Grants. In an analysis of the case studies, it is suggested that advocacy on the part of the dean should be examined descriptively and qualitatively. Appended to the study is a seven-part outline of the interview questions. In his paper, "Using Structure, Action, and Power to Make Teacher Preparation Responsive to Public Law 94-142," John M. Bryson discusses the nature of power in teacher education institutions. Political activities related to decision making are explained in terms of forums, arenas, and courts, and a model, designed to help with Dean's Grant Project administration, is introduced. John M. Bryson and Karin Fladmoe-Lindquist examined judgments of teacher educators during a simulated planning exercise in "Changing Teacher Education: Addressing the Political Difficulties." The focus was on tactics used in planning and decision making related to specified contextual variables. The results of a survey of 104 deans and interviews with deans and faculty members are reported by Kathy A. Okun in "Deans as Change Agents: Testing Assumptions of the Dean's Grant Program." The conclusion of the study endorses the concept of deans as key change agents for curricular change. (Fg)

Creating public value in practice : advancing the common good in a multi-sector, shared-power, no-one-wholly-in-charge world by John M Bryson( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brings together a stellar cast of thinkers to explore issues of public and cross-sector decision-making within a framework of democratic civic engagement. It offers an integrative approach to understanding and applying the concepts of creating public value, public values, and the public sphere. It presents a framework and language for opening a constructive conversation on what governments, businesses, nonprofits, and citizens can achieve in a democracy that honors a broad range of public values. Public officials, scholars, and citizens alike are engaged in an intense debate about the proper purpose, role, and size of government. In the midst of this debate is a growing concern that important public values are ignored by government reform efforts. This book explores the different definitions of public value and approaches to public value creation, discernment, measurement, and assessment. The text helps clarify the issues and demonstrates how the meaning of public value is intimately related to how it is theorized, operationalized, and measured. The book examines the many alternatives for recognizing, measuring, and assessing public value and addresses the pros and cons of each approach. The result is a contribution to the ongoing dialogue about the virtues and limitations of a focus on the public sphere, public values, and how to create public value in the context of developing and implementing policies, programs, projects, and plans that ideally boost confidence in public institutions"--Publisher description

Collaboration in fighting traffic congestion : a study of Minnesota's Urban Partnership Agreement( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Twin Cities metropolitan area was selected to participate in a federal transportation initiative called the Urban Partnership program. This required the formation of a multi-agency collaboration of transportation-focused groups in the Twin Cities area. This collaboration - including the external forces affecting it, the internal processes, structures, and competencies that allowed it to operate, and its accountability mechanisms - is the focus of this analysis. Confirming lessons found in the collaboration literature, the Minnesota UPA is a complex assembly of human (individuals and relationships) and non-human (technologies, artifacts, laws, and procedures) elements; therefore, it is not an easy answer to hard problems but a hard answer to hard problems. The research highlights some new findings. Most notably: the role of technology; linkages connecting high-level federal policymaking to local, operational implementation details; emphasis on multiple roles played by sponsors, champions, neutral conveners, process designers, and technical experts; importance of specific competencies; the role of rules and routines as drivers of collaboration; and the importance of spatial and temporal organizational ambidexterity. It is important to note that the work of this collaboration thus far has been virtually invisible to the public, but that will change in the upcoming stages of UPA implementation

The reactive accompanist : applying subsumption architecture to software design by John M Bryson( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Many knowledge-based systems suffer from structural problems such as inefficiency rooted in overinformedness and inability to cope with the unexpected or exceptional nature of real-world data. Behaviour-based architectures are better suited for such problems, but are not yet widely applied, possibly because design strategies are not yet well established. In robotics, subsumption architecture has proven an effective framework for developing such systems. In this paper we suggest the techniques of subsumption architecture can be transferred to other areas of Artificial Intelligence, and present a project implemented in this fashion. The development strategies used and the types of problems approachable by this method are also discussed."
