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.
