Post What is Public Management?
Begun by the George W. Bush administration, No Child Left Behind is a a valuable case study within public management. A federally funded program, it is run by the Department of Education with the goal of improving the public education system in the United States. Its jurisdiction encompasses public schools all across the country. In addition, it not only affects the education of the children, but also the lives of working parents. Due to the immensity of the project and its impact, management is an intricately complex process.

Public administration, the study of how public agencies are managed, often overlaps with public management. Unlike the latter, the former views government management of projects to be completely different from that of private management due to the emphasis it lays upon the social good. In the United States, a movement known as the New Public Administration (NPM) entails applying market mechanisms to traditional public management practices. Relying heavily on appraisals of efficiency and effectiveness, government agencies are incorporating systems of user-pay basis, increasing competition by allowing companies to bid for contracts, developing result-oriented budgets, and offering incentives to public servants to improve work performance.
