"Health Services Management as a specialized field of study is for people interested in the systematic understanding of organizational principles, practices, and insights pertinent to the management of health services organizations. Like any public sector organization, the health sectors have been affected by the changing political, social and economic conditions in developed and developing countries. To address these problems requires training of professionals with the latest advances in organizational and managerial thinking. The University of Ghana Readers volume from the Department of Public Administration and Health Services Management interrogates the myriad of management challenges that confront the public healthcare system in Ghana and suggests how health professionals can navigate them. The volume provides a platform for practitioners and health sector executives to examine issues that relate to health service administration, management and health policy programmes. The selected readings in the volume will also be useful to undergraduate and graduate students of business, public administration, medicine, nursing, pharmacy public health, and other health professionals whose work dovetails into leadership and managerial responsibilities in health sector organizations."--Back cover

Abstract : Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to investigate the current performance management system of the Sefwi Wiawso Municipal Assembly as well as the challenges faced by the Assembly in implementing its performance management system. Design/methodology/approach: The specific design that was adopted is the case study approach. The primary data were gathered through in-depth interviews. In total, 20 heads of departments and employees were purposively sampled. The data gathered from the interviews were analysed using Miles and Huberman's (1994) approach to qualitative data analysis. Findings: The paper reveals that the performance management system of the Assembly has not been effective. The study also reveals poor communication, poor integration, low commitment by the top officials, absence of training, inadequate capacity for setting clear targets and objectives, and measuring and evaluation criteria for performance assessment, cultural issues, absence of rewards for good performance, financial constraints, weak and highly bureaucratic management systems as challenges facing performance management system of the assembly. Practical implications: This study indicates that the training of supervisors and the linking of performance management systems with reward and recognition are key to ensuring an effective implementation of the performance management system of the Assembly. Originality/value: This paper contributes to literature by examining the performance management system of the Sefwi Wiawso Municipal Assembly in the Western Region of Ghana by describing and drawing lessons from local government experiences in the implementation of performance management systems in developing countries
