    Handbook on Global Value Chains

    Edited by Stefano Ponte, Gary Gereffi, Gale Raj-Reichert

With chapters written by leading interdisciplinary scholars, the Handbook unpacks the key concepts of GVC governance and upgrading, and explores policy implications for advanced and developing economies alike.

  14. Public Management as a Design-Oriented Professional Discipline

    Public Management as a Design-Oriented Professional Discipline

    Michael Barzelay
    While public management has become widely spoken of, its identity and character is not well-defined. Such disparity is an underlying problem in developing public management within academia, and in the eyes of practitioners. In this book, Michael Barzelay tackles the challenge of making public management into a true professional discipline. Barzelay argues that public management needs to integrate contrasting conceptions of professional practice. By pressing forward an expansive idea of design in public management, Barzelay formulates a fresh vision of public management in practice and outlines its implications for research, curriculum development and disciplinary identity.
