This lecture explores approaches essential questions for the Public Management as a professional practice in public organizations and its challenges: What´s public management for? What does it involve? What does it consist in? What is to think about public management as a Design-Oriented professional discipline? Professor Michael Barzelay presents his soon-to-be published book “Public Management as a Design-Oriented Professional Discipline”, connecting theoretical and practical challenges for managers and organizations.
Public management is for creating public value, and what does effectuating public value creation involve? Two lines of theorizing are both pertinent: (a) performing a public organization’s enterprise functions, including program-delivery and management, and (b) problem-solving in organizations. The latter is about doing the former better than would otherwise be the case.
What does public management consist in? Two layers of mechanisms, in particular: design-projects and professional activities, both of which are important to problem-solving and performing a public organization’s enterprise functions. Design-projects combine designing new solutions with making organizational decisions.
Professional activities are a family of mechanisms of professional practice, in relation to which individual professional practitioners are agents, and they include sense-making, designing, argumentation, and dramatization. How well problem-solving is accomplished and how well enterprise functions are performed affect what public management is for: creating public value, as exposed by Mark Moore. Thus, public management is a professional practice, for effectuating the intent of public organizations, consisting in design-projects, as well as a family of professional activities.
