The Effective Public Manager: Achieving Success in a Changing Government
Since it was first published more than a decade ago, The Effective Public Manager has become the standard manual for public administrators and students. This practical provides core concepts to help real-world managers and mangers-to-be meet the demands of their jobs head on rather than work around the constraints of government and gives them the tools to shape events rather than be shaped by them. This thoroughly revised third edition
- Presents an updated and detailed examination of management innovation
- Examines the centrality of government in an era of global communication and transportation, economic interdependence, and the threat of global terrorism
- Contains information on the opportunities and challenges of managing public policy from and with private and nonprofit organizations
