Can Public Sector Organisations Learn? by Maria Barrados( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, considerable attention has been focused on the importance of managing information in organisations, as well as the challenges for organisations to make use of and adapt from it. Organisationsare expected to value information, to be able to learn from the past and to adapt to changing circumstances. While much of the literature has focused on private sector organisations, public sector organisations and indeed thegovernments within which they operate are undergoing significant reforms and face equal challenges. This paper considers organisational learning in the public sector in light of current public sector reform initiatives, many of which have implicitly been based on the assumption that the public sector can indeed use empirical evidence on past experience to inform current decision-making. In doing so, the paper tries to avoid treating organisational learning anthromorphically, focusing instead on the processes and procedures that form the life blood of organisations. Learning in organisations relates to how the organisation deliberately changes and adapts over time in terms of structures, functions, values, attitudes and behaviour. Organisational learning, as we shall use the term, refers to formal structures of information and whether or not they are used. Our interest is in how organisations can bring together information on past performance and have it influence decisions. Building on organisational learning literature, we will argue that while individual learning is important, it is not enough. There is a need to institutionalise learning processes within a public sector organisation

Addressing attribution through contribution analysis : using performance measures sensibly by John Mayne( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A significant element of public sector reform is the move away from a management regime focused on rules and procedures toward an approach that pays greater attention to the results being sought for citizens with taxpayers' dollars. The challenges of managing for results are significant, in particular the difficulty of measuring outcomes in the public sector in a cost-effective manner. This involves measuring whether or not the desired outcomes are occurring, as well as measuring the contribution the program in question has made to the outcomes. This paper discusses these difficulties as well as the related problem of how to deal with accountability in this new management paradigm
Les organisations du secteur public peuvent-elles apprendre? by Maria Barrados( )

1 edition published in 2004 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ces dernières années, on s'est beaucoup préoccupé de la gestion de l'information dans les organisations, ainsi que les défis pour que celles-ci puissent s'en servir et s'adapter. Les organisations sont censées attacher de l'importance à l'information, pouvoir tirer les leçons de l'expérience et s'adapter aux circonstances nouvelles. Si la plupart des publications traitent essentiellement des organisations du secteur privé, les organisations du secteur public, et en particulier les administrations au sein desquelles s'exercent leurs activités, font l'objet d'importantes réformes et doivent relever des défis comparables
Memoirs of the life of John Constable, composed chiefly of his letters by Charles Robert Leslie( Book )

3 editions published between 1951 and 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

C.R. Leslie's memoir of his friend John Constable was first published in 1843 (with an expanded second edition in 1845) and has remained the standard biography of Constable ever since. The book is chiefly compiled from Constable's own correspondence and conversation; indeed its great authority arises from the fact that the story is told almost throughout in the subject's own words. Constable wrote as he painted, with an acute and serious eye on the subject, and with a spontaneous presentation of imagery; he also showed over and over again a robust wit and a taste for gossip. Leslie's memoir is thus still valuable on two counts: it is a classic biography, in which the author's warm and engaging personality is portrayed as freshly as on the first day of publication, and it is a art-historical source-book for the life and opinions of England's greatest landscape painter. This edition contains Leslie's complete and unabridged text. The preface and explanatory notes are by Jonathan Mayne, who also selected and annotated the 72 illustrations
