The paper 'Public Administration as Public Sector Management' is a wonderful example of a management case study. Public administration is different from public sector management in some ways. Public administration primarily dwells on the implementation of the government policies in the public sectors. The civil workers serve the nation through public administration. Public sector management, on the other hand, is a paradigm break from the mode of public administration, which has been used traditionally, to new ways of administration characterized by some values. Public sector efficiency is affected by different changes both positively and negatively.
The major factors which contribute to public sector management include the role of the managers and the public value. The major reason why countries such as Australia and New Zealand have adopted the new public management in their nations is to put an end to the bureaucratic paradigm which is posed by the public administration in the countries. Differences Between The Public Administration And The Public Sector ManagementThe new public sector management paradigm is characterized by bureaucracy, use of the scientific model of management in the workplace, and the policy administration divide into various public sectors.
The public administration was mostly applied in different countries in the 19th century. The public administration was characterized by service providers in a monopolistic way. The public administration was done away with in many countries due to its nature of market-oriented management. Public sector management is based on some values which lead to changes in the market phases making the paradigm different from the others. Firstly, the new management is aimed at focusing on professional management to increase the competence of the public sectors.
Secondly, the public sector management requires the employment of the measures and standards which are explicit to increase performance and public value (Rhodes 2007, p. 408). The new management is also focused on controlling the output in the public sectors to manage the markets efficiently. Additionally, unlike the public administration whose aim is dominating in the market monopolistically, the public management looks forward to increasing the competitiveness of the public sector through employing the private sector management practices.
