Summary
The changing role of the state in society and the economy, new orientations in public sector management and reform, and the growing importance of voluntary organizations and entrepreneurs have given new meaning to the concept of development management. This book argues that the task of managing development in the 1990s is one of encouraging dynamic interactions among public, private, and voluntary institutions as well as among external agencies and donors in an effort to raise living standards and to improve economic performance. Emphasizing that development is no longer solely a public sector responsibility, the contributors offer a wholly new paradigm in place of the traditional concerns of public and development administration. They analyze the context in which the private and voluntary sectors and people-oriented initiatives have assumed their current prominence and put forward practical recommendations for sustaining linkages among public administration, business administration, and management practices in support of the development process in Africa. -- Back cover
