Buchbeschreibung Johns Hopkins University Press. Hardback. Buchzustand: new. BRAND NEW, Government Performance: Why Management Matters, Patricia W. Ingraham, Philip G. Joyce, Amy Kneedler Donahue, Scholars and practitioners of public management have stressed the importance of such varied concepts as efficiency, process, systems and capacity as key to running effective government programmes. While acknowledging the usefulness of each of these criteria, the authors of this book argue that one quality above all is crucial to the overall performance of government: effective management. Examining government performance at the federal, state and local levels, the authors present analyses of public management systems in all 50 US states, the 35 largest cities, 40 large counties and a number of federal agencies. They examine systems for financial management, human resources management, information technology management, capital management and systems for managing results. While acknowledging the political context of all public administration systems, they argue that effective management of these systems nevertheless provides the key to good government performance.
