From the Back Cover:

“I have adopted this text for my course and I plan to continue using it whenever I teach public administration. The major factor that makes me use this text is its hands-on approach. I want my students to be fully engaged in the classroom and this workbook helps that happen.”

–Bethany G. Sneed, Eastern Michigan University

  • An outline of clear distinctions in the types of management–operational, project, contract, regulatory, and emergency–help students recognize important patterns within public administration.
  • An emphasis on decision making–the fundamental, daily activity of public administrators–brings students closer to understanding the real practice of public administration.
  • The exercise on recruitment and selection (Exercise 14) has been thoroughly revised to help students not only understand these processes but to better prepare them to compete for jobs.
