Book Introduction

This book has been conceptualized as a broad overview of the critical issues, theoretical and practical, involved in public organizations and trends pertaining to their management.

This book has been conceptualized as a broad overview of the critical issues,
theoretical and practical, involved in public organizations and trends pertaining to their
management. The emphasis is on the implication of these issues at both the “micro” (i.e.,
internal issues) and “macro” (i.e., external issues concerning relations and strategy) levels
in an organization. This book also discusses important aspects of effective management in
public organizations. Specifically, it looks at various aspects of theories on public organization,
management, research and practices, regarding (1) organizational environment; (2) publicprivate
distinctions; (3) structure, design, and technology; (4) leadership, culture, and
motivation; and (5) effectiveness of goals.
All articles in the book discuss the theoretical, conceptual, and methodological
considerations that are appropriate to each topic; they also provide a critique of existing
work on the respective topics. Additionally, they delineate the implications of future theory
and research, and reflect on the implications of policy and practice at the individual,
organizational, and societal levels. Specifically, this is a research handbook that includes
literature on interdisciplinary research pertaining to management of public organizations,
and covers several academic disciplines such as psychology, leadership studies,
organizational theory/behavior, public values/ethics, and NGO studies. Moreover, it has a
multilevel approach, addressing issues from the individual, managerial, organizational, and
socio-cultural perspectives. Acknowledging the global and universal nature of issues related
to public management, the editor has included research articles from several countries
(Korea, China, Indonesia, and the US) and ensured that both the “East and West” have
been represented in the book.
Based upon Dr. Rainey’s “A framework for Organizational Analysis” (Rainey, 2009,
p. 19?23), the 16 empirical studies in this book have been broadly conceptualized,
categorized, and arranged according to 8 key themes: (1) Auspices: Public, Nonpublic,
and so on; (2) Environments; (3) Leadership; (4) Culture; (5) Structures; (6) Processes;
(7) People; and (8) Organizational Performance and Effectiveness. At the end of each
section, relevant cases studies have been included in order to give readers access to
the key managerial issues in virtual circumstances, and they are followed by a set of
discussion questions. The case studies prompt discussion on a number of topics, including
but not limited to the administrative environments, authority and structures, managing
for effectiveness, leadership and culture, and the relationship between government and
nonprofit organizations. For example, the case study in Section 7 has been introduced
to illustrate the human element of motivation in public and nonprofit sectors. Some case
studies introduce students to the nature and complexities of the management of public
organizations and provide an opportunity to explore the competencies required for their
effective management. The discussion questions that follow the case studies are linked to
the topics illustrated in each chapter. These case studies and questions can be used in class
to prompt discussions on key themes or assigned to students as homework. In the Appendix,
a different set of public agency websites have been included to guide and facilitate class
activities, for example, developing group application project papers and presentations. This
book is expected to serve as a useful reference source for academics and researchers, a
guide for public managers, policy makers, and practitioners, and as a teaching resource for
undergraduate and graduate courses.
It requires a somewhat herculean effort to bring together this many expert coauthors
from around the world and mesh them between two covers. To bring a book of this magnitude
to fruition has required a team of authors committed to the effort of seeing this book come
to life. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to my coauthors who contributed to
each of the chapters: Dr. Hal G. Rainey (UGA), Dr. Jessica Word (UNLV), Dr. M. Ernita
Joaquin (SFU), Dr. Miao (ZJU), Dr. Hyung Jun Park (SKKU), Seona Kim (SKKU), Min Young
Kim (SKKU), and the others. A doctoral student in the Graduate School of Governance at
Sungkyunkwan University provided invaluable assistance with this edition. I am thankful to
Seona Kim (Ph.D. candidate), my coauthor for Chapter 16, whose academic and editorial
work was a major contributor to the accuracy and success of this volume. Her energy,
initiative, and creativity are really appreciable. I also owe my gratitude to Chun Hwan Leem
(CEO) and other representatives of Daeyoung Moonhwasa Publishing Company who have
helped and supported the work on this edition. By the same token, it was a pleasure to work
with a Marketing Director like Jae Hoon Jung, who provided us with a lot of information on
publishing processes.
