Government Program Management reveals how to fundamentally change the roles, structures, and workforce characteristics of government agencies, with special emphasis on moving to a uniform government program management system. A new system to achieve accountability at the federal level is presented. This pioneering guide covers the history of modern reform movements at the government level and outlines reasons for failure of these initiatives. It offers innovative solutions to the problem of accountability and delivery in government programs, and discusses recent movements toward reform in the U.S. and other countries such as the global movement called New Public Management.
The book covers Government Reform and the New Public Management Movement—A Brief History; The Current Organizational Model for Government Programs; New Public Administration Program and Performance Reforms; Program Leadership and Career Senior Executives; Flattening and Streamlining Government Agencies; International Models and Benchmarks; Business Models for Program Management; New Program Management Systems and Processes; Interviews with Government Program Managers; Recommendations for the Future; The Process of Effective Change; and How to Reform Government Program Management.
