Overview

The book combines empirical data gathered through an intensive, comparative case study method with strategic choice and neo-institutional theories to analyse the changing context of public organizations, importation of models of organizing from private to public organizations, and dynamics of public sector transformation. The outcomes of the change programme add to our more general organizational knowledge about: (A) the impact of corporate change programmes, particularly in professionalized and public sector settings; (B) impediments and enablers of lateral organizing structures and processes; and (C) contradictions within the New Public Management between functional and process principles for organizing.
