This book focuses upon managerial responsibilities and roles as opposed to education in law, politics or other fields. The aim of this textbook therefore is action-oriented, applied and practical, not theoretical nor philosophical. It discusses in straight-forward prose, step by step, how to make things happen in the public sector effectively, efficiently and economically. Mini-cases are also included to assist students in comprehending in practice what the authors first outline and discuss conceptually.
