Collaborative Public Manager by Rosemary O'Leary

Book Description

Today's public managers not only have to function as leaders within their agencies, they must also establish and coordinate multi-organizational networks of other public agencies, private contractors, and the public. This important transformation has been the subject of an explosion of research in recent years. "The Collaborative Public Manager" brings together original contributions by some of today's top public management and public policy scholars who address cutting-edge issues that affect government managers worldwide.State-of-the-art empirical research reveals why and how public managers collaborate and how they motivate others to do the same. Examining tough issues such as organizational design and performance, resource sharing, and contracting, the contributors draw lessons from real-life situations as they provide tools to meet the challenges of managing conflict within interorganizational, interpersonal networks. This book pushes scholars, students, and professionals to rethink what they know about collaborative public management - and to strive harder to achieve its full potential.
