In view of the approaching age of austerity for the public sector, leadership is likely to continue to become a key theme. This edited volume brings together a host of material from the public sector to analyzethe issue internationally.
Teelken, Dent & Ferlie lead a team of contributors in examining three key aspects of this increasingly important theme:
• the meaning of public sector leadership, and how this changes in different contexts
• the implications for leadership style given the growing role of the private sector
• the response to the leadership issue from professionals moving into senior management roles.
With contributions from respected academics such as Jean-Louis Denis, Mike Reed and Mirko Nordegraaf, this book will be an invaluable supplementary resource for those undertaking studies across public sector management and administration.
