CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Tackling the key topics of reform and modernization, this important new book
systematically examines performance in public management systems. The authors
present this seminal subject in an informative and accessible manner, tackling
some of the most important themes.
Performance Management in the Public Sector takes as its point of departure a
broad definition of performance to redefine major and basic mechanisms in
public administration, both theoretically and in practice. The book:
situates performance in some of the current public management debates;
discusses the many definitions of ‘performance’ and how it has become one of
the contested agendas of public management; examines measurement, incorporation
and use of performance information; and explores the challenges and future
directions of performance management.
A must-read for any student or practitioner of public management, this core
text will prove invaluable to anyone wanting to improve their understanding of
performance management in the public sector.
