Public Management: Ideals into Action Wing

If not for the diligent work of public administrators, legislated policy ideals would be just ideas. By implementing those ideas via action, public managers at all levels of government and nonprofit are essential to the delivery of public services, and therefore, to public satisfaction. This wing offers visual insights into numerous angles of public management. Delivering Public Services as Promised offers examples of the ways in the political and administrative systems overlap. In Financing our Common Purposes, we examine taxation as a means of fulfilling the common good. High Performing Public Organizations offers exemplars of superior organizations and the facets that make them function well. International Public Service examines boundary-spanning organizations that aim to address issues affecting the worldwide good. In Partnership Governance, the role of collaboration in fulfilling government's promises highlighted. Finally, in Public Technologies for the Public Good, examples of emerging tools, platforms, and infrastructure - and their increasing centrality to the delivery of public service - are shared.
