UNDERSTANDING AND MANAGING PUBLIC ORGANIZATIONS, FIFTH EDITION “This is the definitive place for all serious students of public administration to start. It is the most comprehensive book in the field. It is required reading for MPA students, Ph.D. students, and all scholars in the field.” —Kenneth J. Meier, Charles H. Gregory Chair in Liberal Arts, Texas A&M University “This is the bible for public management scholarship. It is the first place to turn when looking for an accessible but rigorous analysis of research on basic aspects of organizational life in the public sector, such as how culture, leadership, and motivation matter. The interdisciplinary array of research on public management has become so voluminous as to seem overwhelming at times. Rainey’s extraordinary curatorial prowess allows him to turn these fragments of work into a coherent and insightful body of knowledge. Anyone interested in how research can inform governance should start with this book.” —Donald Moynihan, professor of public affairs, Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs, University of Wisconsin—Madison “This is the Encyclopedia Britannica of public management; if you want to find out what has been written, and what is collectively said about the practice and theory of public management, look no further than Rainey’s updated and comprehensive fifth edition.” —Richard M. Walker, chair professor of public management and associate dean, City University of Hong Kong “For more than a decade, Rainey’s book has been a must-read for everyone in the community of public management in Korea, just like in many places all over the world. Undoubtedly, it provides a valuable resource for researchers and students who are interested in public management and applications of organization theory to public organizations. It is quite simply the best investigation of public organization and management that I’ve read.” —Young Han Chun, associate dean, Graduate School of Public Administration, Seoul National University

By adopting Total Quality Management (TQM) strategies, business and industry have learned to work smarter and gain a competitive edge in the new global economy. Now, the same principles of Total Quality Management used in private industry are creating a quiet revolution in the public sector. Government is under constant pressure, the authors remind us, to deliver more services with fewer resources. To improve quality of service, increase productivity, and reduce waste, more and more government managers - from Little Rock to Washington - are turning to TQM. This book sheds light on applying TQM in the real world of government organizations - showing how to introduce TQM, overcome barriers to change, and make TQM a success story for any government agency. Drawing on extensive research and their own "school-of-hard-knocks" experience implementing TQM in a unit of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Steven Cohen and Ronald Brand present straightforward, practical advice on utilizing TQM in government settings. Total Quality Management in Government offers case examples that detail what organizational changes need to be made when TQM is introduced in government agencies. The authors discuss TQM successes in specific government agencies - including the U.S. Air Force, the Treasury Department, the Patent and Trademark Office, the New York City Department of Sanitation, and Blount Memorial Hospital in Tennessee - to reveal how the principles of TQM can be put into practice at all levels of government. And they provide selected charts and diagrams that show concretely how to apply the concepts and techniques of TQM within any governmental unit.
