Using international case study material, this book examines how ideas of visionary leadership have been developed and discusses their applicability to the public sector. The book covers: * the tensions that can arise between administrative/bureaucratic traditions and the leadership styles required today * the relationship between political leadership and organizational leadership * different approaches that have been adopted by public service leaders in organizations around the globe and their level of success * the extent to which existing theories of leadership are appropriate for a new management context. A welcome addition to the current literature, this book will be invaluable reading for students of public administration as well as practitioners and policy makers in the public services.
