"Changing Public Sector Values has 7 captured the essence of the 'new public administration' movement...a first-rate book that is accessible to both scholars and students". -- Stuart C. Gilman, Georgetown University

"The breadth of Van Wart's treatment of public sector values is truly impressive. He takes 'values, ' an abstraction often thrown into discourse with little connection to concrete reality, and shows how it is fundamentally embedded in public organizations and management. Van Wart examines individual, professional, organizational, legal, and public interest values, lucidity linking them to analysis and decision making. The result is a rich volume that offers the reader comprehensive and useful insights". -- Terry L. Cooper, University of Southern California

Managing values is an organizational priority of the highest order. Ethics are derived from values, and organizational leaders and managers have a responsibility to clarify values, support values consensus, and monitor compliance. Giving all major schools of thought equal coverage, this volume examines values from the individual administrator's perspective, from the cultural framework, and from the functional standpoint. Designed to be is useful to both students and practitioners, the book presents examples drawn from all levels of government, with emphasis on such current topics as downsizing, withdrawing tenure, management reductions, organizational redesign, job restructuring, service provision shifts, privatization, and internal competition.
