Public Management in Transition : The Orchestration of Potentiality, Paperback / softback Book

Public Management in Transition : The Orchestration of Potentiality Paperback / softback



This textbook is the first to examine how new trends such as "radical innovation", "co-creation" and "potentialization" challenge fundamental values in the public sector. The authors bridge traditional public management approaches that tend to exclude social and societal problems, with broader social theories apt to capture new dilemmas and challenges.

The book shows how the effects of new forms of managerialism penetrate the state, local governments, welfare institutions as well as professional work and citizens' rights.

It facilitates a discussion about how basic values are put at stake with new reforms and managerial tools. The book is ideal for postgraduate students in the area of public policy and public management with an interest in managing and leading public administration units and welfare institutions.
