The Three Pillars of Public Management.
- secrets of sustained successaf Ingstrup O
Written for the public sector but applicable far beyond it, The Three Pillars of Public Management offers government managers, insights that speak directly to their situation. Unlike management books that promote fads and private-sector models or focus on politics, policy, and government-wide reforms, this book gives solid information on how to improve both the public service agencies and their individual work sites. The Three Pillars of Public Management presents a very interesting picture of the organizations studied and sensible advice about securing higher levels of excellence in the public service. I was especially pleased by what it had to say about and private organizations in the last part of the book. So much nonsense is currently preached about the virtues of privatization« Herbert Simon, Nobel Prize winner. »The Three Pillars of Public Management makes a significant contribution to the field of public sector management, providing a framework for recognizing and improving effectiveness in public organizations.« Jim McDavid, School of Public Administration, University of Victoria.
