PROVEN STRATEGIES FOR APPLYING PROGRAM MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES TO PUBLIC SECTOR PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENTGovernment Program Management examines ongoing global reforms in public-sector program design and management and explains how to deliver public-sector programs in response to these reforms.

A new, generic program management model--essential for government executives, program managers, and legislative leaders--is presented.

The new model addresses various dysfunctional forces, many of them global in scale, that inhibit public programs from achieving their intended benefits and outcomes. This in-depth resource discusses broad reforms that fundamentally alter government agency structure, performance reporting and budgeting, composition, and roles and functions.

The book also looks at targeted reforms affecting individual programs, covering concept, planning, design, delivery, cost control, and performance reporting.

Best practices from both the public and private sectors are covered in this pioneering guide.
