    Program Overview

Saturday, May 25, 2019            11:00 - 12:30

Panel: Challenges in the Strategic Renewal of Public Administrations across Europe 
Session 1
Related to Panel: Challenges in the Strategic Renewal of PA
WG Programme Coordinators:
Tina Jukic, University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia
Edoardo Ongaro, The Open University, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom
Keith Shaw, Northumbria University, Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom

The panel discussion will be designed around the idea that the desired whole-scale renewal and redesign of public administration organisations can most usefully be seen through a strategic management prism, that is one which integrates and goes beyond standard Weberian/bureaucratic and New Public Management (NPM) paradigms to display a greater concern for core and bottom up themes of public value, co-creation and democratic participation as complementary values to those of due process (Weber) or efficient and cost effective service production (NPM). The strategic management focus of the panel differs from an operational management perspective in that it is organisation-wide, operates at a higher order than functional level strategies (e.g. Finance; Human Resource Management) and proceeds over a much longer timeframe.

In particular, we will focus on various downwards facing models of strategy and schools of thought that may help local governments and national agencies build more participatory, legitimate and inclusive decision-making processes, which we are exploring in our current and major EU Horizon 2020 funded project in this area.

 

The aim of the panel is to disseminate and receive feedback on intermediate results of the EU-funded project COGOV.

 

More precisely, the objectives of the panel are:

 

o    To present the initial results of the EU-funded project «Co-Production and Co-Governance: Strategic Management, Public Value and Co-Creation in the Renewal of Public Agencies across Europe.«

o    To discuss the challenges in strategic renewal of public administrations across Europe.

The panel aims to attract PA scholars and practitioners interested in the strategic renewal of public administrations across Europe (with special focus on NPM, public value and co-creation).
