JPAM Classics Series: Articles: Public Management


Excerpt from the Introduction by Laurence E. Lynn, Jr. - "In its first decade or so, public management was investigated mainly through case studies and other experiential methods of gathering evidence on and analyzing managerial behavior. Interest in the “new” public management diffused through schools and programs concerned with public administration and affairs, and new professional organizations and journals devoted to public management research were established. One consequence was that the emphasis in research shifted toward the broader question, “Does public management make a difference?”...The selection of public management articles in this volume of the Classics Series reflects APPAM’s proactive role in promoting its distinctive vision of public management in a variety of forums throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s."
