  2. 2. CONTENTS WHAT IS PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION WHAT IS ADMINISTRATION? THE UNIVERSALITY OF ADMINISTRATION CHARACTERISTICS OF ADMINISTRATION ORGANIZATION MANAGEMENT WHAT IS PUBLIC? DEFINITIONS OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION MAIN CONCERNS OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION APPROACHES TO PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION PUBLIC vs PRIVATE DISTINCTIONS OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE ADIMINSTRATION www.ginandjar.com 2
  3. 3. WHAT IS PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION ? PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION IS A SPECIES BELONGING TO THE GENUS ADMINISTRATION, WHICH GENUS IN TURN BELONGS TO A FAMILY WHICH WE MAY CALL COOPERATIVE HUMAN ACTION (WALDO, 1955) www.ginandjar.com 3
  4. 4. WHAT IS ADMINISTRATION? ADMINISTRATION IS A TYPE OF COOPERATIVE HUMAN EFFORT THAT HAS A HIGH DEGREE OF RATIONALITY. HUMAN ACTION IS COOPERATIVE IF IT HAS EFFECTS THAT WOULD BE ABSENT IF THE COOPERATION DID NOT TAKE PLACE. (WALDO, (WALDO 1955) www.ginandjar.com 4
  5. 5. WHAT IS ADMINISTRATION? THE SIGNIFICANCE OF HIGH DEGREE OF RATIONALITY LIES IN THE FACT THAT HUMAN COOPERATION VARIES IN EFFECTIVENESS OF GOAL ATTAINMENT, WHETHER WE THINK IN TERMS OF FORMAL GOALS, THE GOALS OF , LEADERS, OR OF ALL WHO COOPERATE (WALDO, 1955) www.ginandjar.com 5
  6. 6. WHAT IS ADMINISTRATION? ADMINISTRATION IS A PART OF THE CULTURAL COMPLEX; COMPLEX AND IT NOT ONLY IS ACTED UPON, IT ACTS. INDEED, BY DEFINITION A SYSTEM OF RATIONAL COOPERATIVE ACTION, O S S O O COO C O , IT IN-AUGURATES AND CONTROLS MUCH CHANGE. ADMINISTRATION MAY BE THOUGHT OF AS THE MAJOR INVENTION AND DEVICE BY WHICH CIVILIZED MEN IN COMPLEX SOCIETIES TRY TO CONTROL THEIR CULTURE, BY WHICH THEY SEEK SIMULTANEOUSLY TO ACHIEVE WITHIN ACHIEVE—WITHIN THE LIMITATIONS OF THEIR WIT AND KNOWLEDGE—THE GOALS OF STABILITY AND THE GOALS OF CHANGE. (WALDO, 1995) www.ginandjar.com 6
  7. 7. WHAT IS ADMINISTRATION? ADMINISTRATION IS A PLANNED APPROACH TO THE SOLVING OF ALL KINDS OF PROBLEMS IN ALMOST EVERY INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP ACTIVITY, BOTH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE (DIMOCK, DIMOCK, AND KOENIG, 1960) www.ginandjar.com 7
  8. 8. WHAT IS ADMINISTRATION? IN ITS BROADEST SENSE ADMINISTRATION CAN BE DEFINED AS THE ACTIVITIES OF GROUPS COOPERATING TO ACCOMPLISH COMMON GOALS. (SIMON, 1991) www.ginandjar.com 8
  9. 9. ILLUSTRATION… FAMILY HAVE SOME DECIDE TO MONEY BUY LOTTERIES RESULTS WIN LOSE RICHER OR POORER OR BETTER LIFE WORSE LIFE www.ginandjar.com 9
  10. 10. ILLUSTRATION… FAMILY DECIDE TO USE THE HAVE SOME MONEY AS CAPITAL MONEY TO ESTABLISH A SHOP WORKING TOGETHER IN THE OPERATION RESULTS OF THE SHOP SUCCESFUL FAILURE BETTER LIFE FIND WAYS TO START AGAIN www.ginandjar.com 10
  11. 11. WHAT IS ADMINISTRATION? THERE IS PURPOSE: MOVING THE STONE THERE IS COOPERATIVE ACTION: SEVERAL PERSONS USING COMBINED STRENGTH TO ACCOMPLISH SOMETHING THAT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN DONE WITHOUT SUCH A COMBINATION www.ginandjar.com 11
  12. 12. WHAT IS ADMINISTRATION? THE STUDY OF ADMINISTRATION IS CONCERNED WITH QUESTIONS SUCH AS: 1. HOW THE METHOD WAS CHOOSEN, 2. HOW THE MEN MOVING THE STONE WERE SELECTED AND INDUCED TO COOPERATE IN CARRYING OUT SUCH A TASK, 3. HOW THE TASK WAS DIVIDED BETWEEN THEM, 4. HOW EACH ONE LEARNED WHAT HIS PARTICULAR JOB WAS IN THE TOTAL PATTERN, PATTERN 5. HOW HE LEARNED TO PERFORM IT, 6. HOW HIS EFFORTS ARE COORDINATED WITH THE EFFORTS OF THE OTHER (SIMON, 1991) www.ginandjar.com 12
  13. 13. THE UNIVERSALITY OF ADMINISTRATION SINCE ADMINISTRATION IS CONCERNED WITH ALL PATTERNS OF COOPERATIVE BEHAVIOR, IT IS BEHAVIOR OBVIOUS THAT ANY PERSON ENGAGED IN AN ACTIVITY IN COOPERATION WITH OTHER PERSONS IS ENGAGED IN ADMINISTRATION. SINCE EVERYONE HAS COOPERATED WITH OTHERS THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE HE HAS LIFE, SOME BASIC FAMILIARITY WITH ADMINISTRATION AND SOME OF ITS PROBLEMS. (SIMON, 1991) www.ginandjar.com 13
  14. 14. THE UNIVERSALITY OF ADMINISTRATION MUCH OF THIS ADMINISTRATION IS UNCONSCIOUS- THAT IS, NOT DELIBERATELY OR FORMALLY PLANNED- BUT IT IS ADMINISTRATION NEVERTHELESS. THE FATHER IS OFTEN CONSIDERED THE HEAD OF THE HOUSEHOLD, BUT HE IS NOT CONSCIOUSLY SELECTED AS SUCH BY A FORMAL VOTE. HE CERTAINLY PERFORMS ADMINISTRATIVE FUNCTIONS, MAKING DECISIONS FOR THE FAMILY AND ASSIGNING TASKS TO ITS MEMBER (SIMON, 1991) www.ginandjar.com 14
  15. 15. THE UNIVERSALITY OF ADMINISTRATION MOST PERSONS, WHILE THEY ARE ENGAGED IN ADMINISTRATION EVERY DAY OF THEIR LIVES, SELDOM THINK FORMALLY ABOUT THE PROCESS. THEY SELDOM DELIBERATELY SET OUT TO CONSIDER THE WAYS IN WHICH THE COOPERATIVE ACTIVITIES OF GROUPS ARE ACTUALLY ARRANGED; HOW THE COOPERATION COULD BE MADE MORE EFFECTIVE OR SATISFYING; WHAT THE REQUIREMENTS ARE FOR THE CONTINUANCE OF THE COOPERATIVE ACTIVITY (SIMON, 1991) www.ginandjar.com 15
  16. 16. CHARACTERISTICS OF ADMINISTRATION THE CHARACTERISTICS OF ADMINISTRATION ARE BEST SUBSUMED UNDER THE TWO TERMS ORGANIZATION AND MANAGEMENT (WALDO, 1955) ORGANIZATION AND MANAGEMENT ARE THE TWO FACES OF THE SAME COIN. www.ginandjar.com 16
  17. 17. CHARACTERISTICS OF ADMINISTRATION ORGANIZATION IS THE ANATOMY, MANAGEMENT THE PHYSIOLOGY, OF ADMINISTRATION. ORGANIZATION IS THE STRUCTURE; MANAGEMENT IS THE FUNCTIONING OF ADMINISTRATION. (WALDO, (WALDO 1955) www.ginandjar.com 17
  18. 18. ORGANIZATION Directorate General Directorate/Bureau / Division Section www.ginandjar.com 18
  19. 19. MANAGEMENT MANAGER PLANNING IMPLEMENTATION CONTROLLING www.ginandjar.com 19
  20. 20. ORGANIZATION THE STRUCTURE OF AUTHORITATIVE AND HABITUAL PERSONAL INTERRELATIONS IN AN ADMINISTRATIVE SYSTEM (WALDO, 1955) www.ginandjar.com 20
  21. 21. IN GENERAL, ORGANIZATIONAL THEORY IS “GENERIC” IN THE SENSE THAT IT DOES NOT MAKE DISTINCTIONS BETWEEN PUBLIC AND PRIVATE ORGANIZATIONS (BOZEMAN, (BOZEMAN 1987) www.ginandjar.com 21
  22. 22. ORGANIZATION IS A GROUP OF PEOPLE, WORKING TOWARD OBJECTIVES, WHICH DEVELOPS AND MAINTAINS RELATIVELY STABLE AND PREDICTABLE BEHAVIOR PATTERNS, EVEN THOUGH THE PATTERNS INDIVIDUALS IN THE ORGANIZATION MAY CHANGE. (TOSI, RIZZO, AND CARROLL, 1998) www.ginandjar.com 22
  23. 23. THE STRUCTURE OF AN ORGANIZATION AFFECTS THE BEHAVIOR OF ITS WORKERS, PARTICIPANTS, PARTICIPANTS AND PERHAPS EVEN CASUAL MEMBERS, ORGANIZATIONAL PROCESSES ALSO AFFECT ORGANIZATIONAL AND INDIVIDUAL BEHAVIOR, www.ginandjar.com 23
  24. 24. ORGANIZATIONS MAY HAVE CULTURES THAT PARTIALLY DEFINE HOW THEIR MEMBERS CONCEPTUALIZE ORGANIZATIONAL ACTIVITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT (MARCH, (MARCH 1965) www.ginandjar.com 24
  25. 25. TYPES OF ORGANIZATION 1. STAFF ORGANIZATION 2. LINE ORGANIZATION O G O 3. LINE AND STAFF ORGANIZATION www.ginandjar.com 25
  26. 26. STAFF ORGANIZATION MINISTER ASSISTANT MINISTER DIRECTOR DIRECTOR SECRETARY INSPECTOR GENERAL GENERAL GENERAL GENERAL DIRECTOR DIRECTOR BUREAU INSPECTOR www.ginandjar.com 26
  27. 27. LINE ORGANIZATION SALES MANAGER SALES PERSON SALES PERSON SALES PERSON www.ginandjar.com 27
  28. 28. LINE AND STAFF ORGANIZATION SALES MANAGER MARKET FORECASTOR TRAINING DIRECTOR REGION A SALES REGION B SALES REGION C SALES MANAGER MANAGER MANAGER SALES PEOPLE SALES PEOPLE SALES PEOPLE www.ginandjar.com 28
  29. 29. MANAGEMENT GETTING THINGS DONE THROUGH THE EFFORTS OF OTHER PEOPLE. (TAYLOR, 1912) ACTION INTENDED TO ACHIEVE RATIONAL COOPERATION IN AN ADMINISTRATIVE SYSTEM. (WALDO, 1955) MANAGEMENT REFERS TO THE PROCESS OF RUNNING AN ORGANIZATION AND THE USE OF RESOURCES TO ACCOMPLISH ITS GOALS. THE TERM ALSO REFERS TO THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE FORMALLY AUTHORIZED TO RUN THE ORGANIZATION. ( (LEMAY, 2002) ) www.ginandjar.com 29
  30. 30. MANAGEMENT FUNCTIONS : PLANNING ORGANIZING STAFFING DIRECTING COORDINATING REPORTING BUDGETING (LUTHER GULICK AND LYNDALL URWICK, 1932) www.ginandjar.com 30
  31. 31. WHAT IS PUBLIC? THE CLASSIC MEANING OF PUBLIC DERIVES FROM TWO SOURCES. THE FIRST IS THE GREEK WORD PUBES, OR quot;MATURITY,quot; WHICH IN THE GREEK SENSE MEANS IN THE BOTH PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL OR INTELLECTUAL MATURITY AND EMPHASIZE MOVING FROM THE SELFISH CONCERNS OR PERSONAL SELF-INTEREST TO SEEING BEYOND ONE'S SELF TO UNDERSTAND THE INTEREST OF OTHERS. OTHERS IT IMPLIES AN ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND THE CONSEQUENCES OF ONE'S INDIVIDUAL ACTIONS ON OTHER PEOPLE. THE DERIVATE PUBLIC MEANS MOVING TO AN ADULT STATE, UNDERSTANDING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ONESELF AND OTHER INDIVIDUALS, AND BEING ABLE TO SEE-THE CONNECTIONS. (PALMER, 1981; MATHEWS, 1994) www.ginandjar.com 31
  32. 32. WHAT IS PUBLIC? THE SECOND ROOT OF PUBLIC IS THE GREEK WORD KOINON FROM WHICH THE ENGLISH WORD COMMON IS DERIVED. KOINON, IN TURN, DERIVES FROM AN OTHER GREEK WORD, KOM OIS, KOM-OIS, MEANING TO CARE WITH. THE TERMS COMMON AND TO CARE WITH BOTH IMPLY THE IMPORTANCE OF RELATIONSHIPS. THE CONCEPTS OF MATURITY AND SEEING BEYOND ONESELF SEEM TO INDICATE THAT THE WORD PUBLIC CAN BE BOTH A THING, AS IN CASE OF A PUBLIC DECISION AND A CAPACITY, AS IN THE ABILITY TO FUNCTION PUBLICLY, TO RELATE TO PUBLICLY OTHERS, AND TO UNDERSTAND THE CONNECTION BETWEEN ONE'S ACTIONS AND EFFECTS OF THOSE ACTIONS ON OTHERS. (MATHEWS, 1984) www.ginandjar.com 32
  33. 33. WHAT IS PUBLIC? THE MODERN USAGE OF THE WORD PUBLIC REFERS TO ALL THE PEOPLE IN A SOCIETY, WITHOUT DISTINGUISHING BETWEEN THEM. A PUBLIC SCHOOL, FOR EXAMPLE, IS OPEN THEM SCHOOL EXAMPLE TO ALL AND IS THOUGHT OF AS A PLACE WHERE THE COMMON KNOWLEDGE OF THE PEOPLE IS PASSED ALONG. THE PUBLIC PRESS IS AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE, TOO, AS IS THE PUBLIC LIBRARY. AND WE USE THE TERM PUBLIC FIGURE TO DESCRIBE A PERSON WHOSE RESPONSIBILITIES, RESPONSIBILITIES AND THEREFORE LIFE, ARE VISIBLE TO ALL. (H. (H GEORGE FREDERICKSON, 1997) FREDERICKSON www.ginandjar.com 33
  34. 34. WHAT IS PUBLIC? FREDERICKSON’S FIVE PERSPECTIVES OF PUBLIC IN PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION: 1) THE PUBLIC AS INTEREST GROUPS (THE PLURALIST PERSPECTIVE) 2) THE PUBLIC AS RATIONAL CHOOSER (THE PUBLIC CHOICE PERSPECTIVE) 3) THE PUBLIC AS REPRESENTED (THE LEGISLATIVE PERSPECTIVE) 4) THE PUBLIC AS CUSTOMER (THE SERVICE- PROVIDING PERSPECTIVE) 5) THE PUBLIC AS CITIZEN www.ginandjar.com 34
  35. 35. WHAT IS PUBLIC? THE PUBLIC AS INTEREST GROUPS: THE PLURALIST PERSPECTIVE PLURALISM DESCRIBES THE NATURAL DEVELOPMENT OF INTEREST GROUPS OF BRINGING TOGETHER INDIVIDUALS WITH SIMILAR CONCERNS. INTEREST GROUPS INTERACT AND COMPETE IN THE GOVERNMENTAL SETTING, SEEKING THE ADVANTAGES SETTING AND PREFERENCES OF THE INDIVIDUALS THEY CONSTITUTE. INTEREST GROUPS FURTHER THE RIGHT OF THE CITIZEN TO ORGANIZE TO ADVANCE THEIR INTERESTS IN THE GOVERNMENTAL MARKETPLACE. www.ginandjar.com 35
  36. 36. WHAT IS PUBLIC? THE PUBLIC IS MANIFESTED IN THE PROCESSES OF GROUP INTERACTION. IT CAN ALSO BE ARGUED THAT THE NET RESULT OF GROUP INTERACTION CONSTITUTES A DEFINITION OF THE PUBLIC INTEREST. INTEREST (FLATHMAN, 1966; SCHUBERT, 1960) www.ginandjar.com 36
  37. 37. WHAT IS PUBLIC? THE PUBLIC AS RATIONAL CHOOSER: THE PUBLIC CHOICE PERSPECTIVE THIS VIEW, COMMONLY KNOWN AS THE UTILITARIAN PERSPECTIVE, PERSPECTIVE PURSUES INDIVIDUAL INTEREST INTEREST, PLEASURE, AND HAPPINESS WITHOUT PARTICULAR CONCERN FOR COMMUNITY VALUES AND NOTIONS SUCH AS ETHICS, A quot;GREATER GOOD,quot; OR THE POSSIBILITY OF ETHICS GREATER GOOD A PUBLIC INTEREST. THEREFORE, THE DOMINANT PERSPECTIVE MUST BE INDIVIDUALISTIC. www.ginandjar.com 37
  38. 38. WHAT IS PUBLIC? THE PRIMARY ASSUMPTION IS THAT PUBLIC ACTION MUST BE UNDERSTOOD AS THE ACTION OF MOTIVATED INDIVIDUALS WHOSE INTERESTS TYPICALLY DIFFER. EACH INDIVIDUAL IS A RATIONAL CALCULATOR PURSUING HIS OR HER OWN INTERESTS GOVERNMENT AND SOCIAL INTERESTS. ORDER SIMPLY PROVIDE A STABLE ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH FREE INDIVIDUAL CHOICE MAY BE EXERCISED. www.ginandjar.com 38
  39. 39. WHAT IS PUBLIC? THE PUBLIC AS REPRESENTED: THE LEGISLATIVE PERSPECTIVE MODERN DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT IN PRACTICE HAS BEEN REPRESENTATIVE RATHER THAN DIRECT. BECAUSE ELECTED OFFICIALS DIRECTLY REPRESENT THE PUBLIC, THEY HAVE THE MOST LEGITIMATE CLAIM FOR A PUBLIC PERSPECTIVE ON PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION, AND PUBLIC ADMINISTRATORS ARE EXPECTED TO OPERATE THE AGENCIES THAT LEGISLATORS ESTABLISH AND TO OBEY AND ENFORCE THE LAWS THAT LEGISLATORS PASS PASS. www.ginandjar.com 39
  40. 40. WHAT IS PUBLIC? THE PUBLIC AS CUSTOMER: THE SERVICE-PROVIDING CUSTOMER SERVICE PROVIDING PERSPECTIVE ONE OF THE MOST INTERESTING PERSPECTIVES ON THE PUBLIC IS THAT OF THE CUSTOMER. HERE CUSTOMERS IS CUSTOMER DEFINED AS THE INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS SERVED BY SO-CALLED STREET-LEVEL BUREAUCRATS. www.ginandjar.com 40
  41. 41. WHAT IS PUBLIC? SCHOOL-CHILDREN, SCHOOL CHILDREN ARE THE CUSTOMERS OF TEACHERS, TEACHERS COUNSELORS, PRINCIPALS, SUPERINTENDENTS, AND SC OO O SCHOOL BOARDS; VICTIMS OF CRIME (AS WELL AS S; C SO C ( S S THOSE WHO COMMIT THE CRIMES) ARE THE CUSTOMERS OF THE POLICE; AND THOSE WHO ARE ILL OR HANDICAPPED, HANDICAPPED EITHER PHYSICALLY OR EMOTIONALLY, EMOTIONALLY ARE CUSTOMERS OF THE WIDE RANGE OF MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS IN PUBLIC HEALTH AGENCIES. ALL CITIZENS ARE AT ONE TIME OR AN OTHER CUSTOMERS OF GOVERNMENT. www.ginandjar.com 41
  42. 42. WHAT IS PUBLIC? THE PUBLIC AS CITIZEN THE CONCEPT OF CITIZENSHIP IS CLOSELY TIED TO THE ORIGINS OF THE MODERN FIELD OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION. IN EARLY CONCEPTS OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION CITIZENS WERE THE PUBLIC (FREDERICKSON AND CHANDLER, 1984). IN THE 1930s, PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION BEGAN TO DRIFT AWAY FROM ITS EMPHASIS ON CITIZENSHIP AND MOVE MOSTLY TOWARD ADMINISTRATIVE ISSUES. www.ginandjar.com 42
  43. 43. WHAT IS PUBLIC? IN PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION, THERE HAS BEEN RENEWED INTEREST IN THE CONCEPT OF CITIZENSHIPS. GENERALLY, THE MODERN DEVELOPMENT OF THE CITIZENSHIP PERSPECTIVE IN PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION ASSUMES THAT A VIGOROUS CITIZENRY IS COMPATIBLE WITH AN EFFECTIVE PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION. INDEED, CITIZENSHIP THEORISTS ARGUE THAT AN INFORMED AND ACTIVE CITIZENRY IS ESSCNTIAL TO EFFECTIVE GOVERNMENT ADMINISTRATION. www.ginandjar.com 43
  44. 44. WHAT IS PUBLIC? STRONG DEMOCRACY REQUIRES UNMEDIATED SELF- Q GOVERNMENT BY AN ENGAGED CITIZENRY. IT REQUIRES INSTITUTIONS THAT WOULD INVOLVE INDIVIDUALS AT BOTH THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND THE NATIONAL LEVEL IN COMMON TALK, COMMON DECISION MAKING AND POLITICAL JUDGEMENT, AND COMMON ACTION. (MARONE, 1990) www.ginandjar.com 44
  45. 45. DEFINITIONS OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION THE ORGANIZATION AND MANAGEMENT OF MEN AND MATERIALS TO ACHIEVE THE PURPOSES OF GOVERNMENT THE ART AND SCIENCE OF MANAGEMENT AS APPLIED TO AFFAIRS OF STATE (WALDO, 1955) www.ginandjar.com 45
  46. 46. OTHER WAYS TO DEFINE PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION MAY BE DEFINED AS THE COORDINATION OF INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP EFFORTS TO CARRY OUT PUBLIC POLICY IT IS MAINLY OCCUPIED WITH THE DAILY WORK OF GOVERNMENTS www.ginandjar.com 46
  47. 47. OTHER WAYS TO DEFINE PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION CONCERNS ITSELF MORE WITH HOW POLITICIANS IN GOVERNMENT AND NON-ELECTED PUBLIC SECTOR EMPLOYEES DEVICE POLICY, SUSTAIN THE MACHINERY OF GOVERNMENT AND ENSURE POLICIES ARE PUT INTO PRACTICE. (CHANDLER, 2000) www.ginandjar.com 47
  48. 48. OTHER WAYS TO DEFINE PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION THE OCCUPATIONAL SECTOR, ENTERPRISES, AND ACTIVITIES HAVING TO DO WITH THE FORMULATION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF POLICY OF GOVERNMENTAL AND OTHER PUBLIC PROGRAMS AND THE MANAGEMENT OF ORGANIZATIONS AND ACTIVITIES INVOLVED THE ACADEMIC FIELD CONCERNED WITH THE STUDY OF IMPROVEMENT OF, AND TRAINING FOR THE ACTIVITIES , MENTIONED IN NO 1 (ABOVE) (MARTINI, 1998) www.ginandjar.com 48
  49. 49. OTHER WAYS TO DEFINE PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION THE ADMINISTRATION OR MANGEMENT OF MATTERS WHICH HAVE PRINCIPALLY TO DO WITH THE SOCIETY, POLITY, AND ITS SUBPARTS WHICH ARE NOT ESSENTIALLY PRIVATE, FAMILIAL, COMMERCIAL, OR INDIVIDUALISTIC. DISCIPLINED STUDY OF SUCH MATTERS. IN ITS SIMPLEST MEANING, PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION HAS TO DO WITH MANAGING THE REALM OF GOVERNMENTAL AND OTHER PUBLIC ACTIVITIES (MARTINI, 1998) www.ginandjar.com 49
  50. 50. PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION OCUPATION/ ACADEMIC FIELD PROFESSION TEACHING RESEARCH www.ginandjar.com 50
  51. 51. MAIN CONCERNS OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION 1. ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR AND THE BEHAVIOR OF PEOPLE IN PUBLIC ORGANIZATIONS; 2. 2 THE TECHNOLOGY OF MANAGEMENT AND THE INSTITUTIONS OF POLICY IMPLEMENTATION; 3. 3 THE PUBLIC INTEREST AS IT RELATES TO INDIVIDUAL ETHICAL CHOICE AND PUBLIC AFFAIRS. (BAILEY, 1968) www.ginandjar.com 51
  52. 52. APPROACHES TO PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION MANAGEMENT POLITICAL LEGAL www.ginandjar.com 52
  53. 53. APPROACHES TO PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION MANAGERIAL APPROACH PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION IS GEARED TOWARD THE MAXIMIZATION OF EFFECTIVENESS, EFFICIENCY, EFFECTIVENESS EFFICIENCY AND ECONOMY (ROSENBLOOM, 2005) www.ginandjar.com 53
  54. 54. PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION AS MANAGEMENT PLANING PROCESS PLANNING BUDGETING ADMINISTRATION STRUCTURES PRIVATE ORGANIZING PROCEDURES HUMAN RESOURCES PUBLIC GOALS STANDARD IMPLEMENTING OPERATING PROCEDURES MONITORING CONTROLLING EVALUATION FEED BACK www.ginandjar.com 54
  55. 55. APPROACHES TO PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION POLITICAL APPROACH RESPONSIBILITY AND RESPONSIVENESS OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENCIES AND THE BUREAUCRACIES TO THE ELECTED OFFICIALS (THE CHIEF EXECUTIVES, THE LEGISLATORS). IT IS OF CENTRAL IMPORTANCE IN A GOVERNMENT BASED INCREASINGLY ON THE EXERCISE OF DISCRETIONARY POWER BY THE AGENCIES OF ADMINISTRATION. (ROSENBLOOM, (ROSENBLOOM 2005) www.ginandjar.com 55
  56. 56. APPROACHES TO PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION LEGAL APPROACH AN ADMINISTRATIVE AGENCY IS A GOVERNMENTAL AUTHORITY, OTHER THAN A COURT AND OTHER THAN A LEGISLATIVE BODY, WHICH AFFECTS THE RIGHTS OF PRIVATE PARTIES THROUGH EITHER ADJUDICATION, RULE , MAKING, INVESTIGATING, PROSECUTING, NEGOTIATING, SETTLING, OR INFORMALLY ACTING. THE LEGAL APPROACH TO PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION EMPHASIZES THE RULE OF LAW. (ROSENBLOOM, 2005) www.ginandjar.com 56
  57. 57. PUBLIC vs PRIVATE A COMMON USAGE OF ‘PUBLIC’ IS TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN THE ‘PUBLIC SECTOR’ AND THE ‘PRIVATE SECTOR , WHICH PUBLIC SECTOR PRIVATE SECTOR’ ESSENTIALLY REVOLVES AROUND DIFFERENCE OF OWNERSHIP (CO C O S (COLLECTIVE OWNERSHIP, IN THE NAME OF ALL CITIZEN, , O C , VERSUS INDIVIDUAL OWNERSHIP) AND MOTIVE ( SOCIAL ) PURPOSE VERSUS PROFIT).
