Offering essential interpretations of the surge in recent literature on strategy and public management, this timely and insightful Handbook includes contributions from some of the key figures in the field, focusing on concepts such as strategic management, strategic planning, and strategizing for public purposes.

Providing an in-depth examination of strategic public management as a key topic in public management and governance, this Handbook considers the interconnections between strategy, public value, and the state, and the challenges of strategizing collaborative governance. Chapters discuss the role of design-oriented practices in strategic public management, the rise of public innovation labs, business model innovation, and the financial dimension of strategy in the public sector. It also includes case studies from Australia, Europe, the United Kingdom, and the United States, illustrating the effects of Brexit, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the growth of artificial intelligence on strategic public management.

This stimulating Handbook will be essential reading for students and scholars in strategic management, public management, public administration, public policy and politics, and political science. It will also be beneficial for public managers, public administrators, strategizers, local, regional, and national politicians, and network managers.
Critical Acclaim
‘Ever since I wrote Creating Public Value, I have had to argue with my academic colleagues about whether the idea of “strategic public management” could be considered a legitimate academic field that should attract attention from researchers, teachers, and practitioners who were interested in developing the concepts and pedagogies that could enable public officials, and more broadly, public leaders, to do better in mobilizing and directing private and public assets towards the achievement of freer, more prosperous, more secure, more tolerant, and more just societies. This Handbook on Strategic Public Management by Carsten Greve and Tamyko Ysa provides a resounding “yes!” to that question, and goes on to explain what this subject is, and – more significantly, why it is important, and how it can be taught! I am very glad it has been written since it shows the breadth of scholarship focused on this idea, along with the depth and precision of the analytic concepts associated with the larger idea. I recommend it heartily to those who wish to understand the internal logic and potential utility of this field, and to develop it further both in theory and in practice.’
