The paper "Global Governance in Developed And Developing Countries" is an outstanding example of management coursework.   Through governance, what was seen as the roles of the government is now seen as common and can be resolved by the government as well as other actors. The political institutions have lost the monopoly in the orchestration of government. This is seen in both developing and developed countries (Pierre, 2000). Despite this, good governance has been hard to come by in the developing countries compared to the developed countries. From the comparative analysis of the governance between the developing and developed countries, the theme of public service delivery arises.

It is clear with governance, the public administration has been evolving while at the same time facing challenges in the developing countries (Batley, McCourt & Mcloughlin, 2012). I have been able to observe that the developing countries are facing challenges in the governance of public tasks being faced with corruption and other wicked issues. To look at public service delivery as a core theme, I will focus on privatisation, decentralisation, public administrative reform and participation in both developed and developing countries. I believe that politics and governance have a great impact on the performance of public services.

In addition, governance differs between developed and developing countries. Also, the provision of public services differs sharply in the developed compared to the developing countries. Successful public reforms are dependent on country institutional and political tools (Grindle, 2004). With the millennium development goals, the role of public administration has become very vital (United Nations, 2016). This is through encouraging governments to ensure that they improve service delivery. In the developing economies, there have been reductions of government control through reduction of bureaucracy (Nayyar, 2016).

This is through giving power to the population in controlling their own lives. Increase in social participation has made it possible to easily provide public services. From the comparative analysis, I am able to gain information that top-bottom approach of management of the public services have been left to some of the developing countries (Cameron, 2011). The developed countries have been able to eliminate the tight control of the government which has led to successful public reforms.

Centrally controlled public services face a lot of problems as evidenced in the developing countries (Fagbadebo, 2007). I can clearly state that it is wrong for the producers of the public services to overrule those who use them through bureaucracy (Cameron, 2011). To be at par with the developed countries, developing countries have been engaging in public sector reforms and privatisation. Privatisation is a move that ensures that public service delivery is no longer a preserve for the government only (Farazmand, 1999). This is supported by the World Bank reforms proposals in countries such as India.

Despite the efforts, it is clear that local issues such as the caste system in India are still an impediment. This is where human rights are not observed by those involved due to their culture. Caste system shows highly bureaucratic societies which the privatisation moves are supposed to consider. As seen in the case of India, the focus on privatisation by the World Bank fails to look at the humanity principle (Murphy, 2010). This is unlike the developed countries where the caste system is almost non-existence making it easier to privatise service delivery without going against moral standards.

It is clear that developed countries liberalised and privatised their public service delivery long before the developing countries (Farazmand, 1999). This helped in reducing the wage burden for the government and improved the service delivery to the public.
