Book Introduction

Over the past 20 years, the management of the public service has changed tremendously in most OECD countries. First, governments have tried to reduce the size of their public employment to decrease the costs of producing government services. They have done this either directly or indirectly by contracting out the production of services to the private sector under the assumption that it would be more efficient. Second, in many cases, governments have tried to apply general good management principles to the management of public employees. As a consequence, many areas of public employment have lost their uniqueness and have become quite similar to the general employment systems in different countries. In addition, public services are under pressure from economic and societal changes that affect their management such as, for example, the globalisation of labour markets, ageing societies, and the advent of knowledge economies. This book takes stock of the main changes in the management of public services across OECD countries. It also examines how countries manage to find a balance between attention to fundamental values such as fairness, equity, justice and social cohesion - necessary to maintain political confidence in the government system as a whole - and a focus on efficiency, productivity and effectiveness. This book will help governments and the public better understand some of the complex issues involved in the management of the public service
