Handbook of Public Management in Africa

About the eBook

This forward-thinking Handbook provides a thorough and comprehensive guide on the positive prospects for public management and governance across the African continent. Exploring best practices learned by public management and governments in the region, this book examines Africa’s ability to leapfrog developed nations in the adoption and adaptation of managerial models, techniques and applications for government.<P><br/><br/>Literature on governance on the African continent is often pervaded with examples of poor leadership, low managerial competency, failing infrastructure, corruption and malpractice. Adopting a comparatively constructive and pragmatic approach, this Handbook explores the broad spectrum of government functions and operations across the continent to outline examples of optimal public policy implementation and performance improvement of public institutions. Bringing together over 30 eminent scholars from the five main African regions, it delivers a comparative analysis of cases and examples in order to ascertain best practice and build effective frameworks for the future.<P><br/><br/>This essential Handbook will appeal to students and scholars of public administration and management, political science, developmental studies and planning and policy development. It will also be of great benefit to public sector practitioners, political representatives and development agencies looking to learn from African public management.<P>
