bourgeoisie (Irving Markovitz) 3. Corporatist Systems can be royalist, military, social (Spain, Argentina, Scandinavia) The Myth: Classical NonPartisanism The Politics/Administration Dichotomy: The Role of Non-Partisan Movements and
Generic Management POSDECORB (Luther Gulick) (Planning, Organizing, Staffing, Directing, Coordinating, Reporting, and Budgeting) How Neutral? Differences between the public and
the private sector- How much, or how little? 1. No significant differences between personnel in large private vs. public organizations 2. Differences in the structures within which the individual has to work
3. The bureaucracy is an institution of government Government: Differences from the private sectorDifference in Product 4. Private- emphasis is on profit, economy and efficiency
5. Public- need to account for the political and social- not what is always efficient 6. Issue- motivation or its absence in the public sector Recruitment: The Only Game in Town (for Reform)
KEY: The recruitment of professionals and specialists contradicts with the issue of political control a. Problem- management, eg. the Department, often does not control recruitment b. Legislation sets the rules- merit system with civil service commission overseeing the
process c. Civil Service Commission or Office of Personnel acts as an intermediary THE PROBLEM Management of the public sector organization is separated from the
major management functionseg. promotion, firing, discipline, collective bargaining The Bottom Line Government Has THE Monopoly of Power (Ultimately Life and Death)

or judicial review c. Problem of bureaucratic lethargy- resists change Lethargy (Dong Eun Kim) Origins of bureaucratic
power-2 d. Bureaucracies are COMPLEX ORGANIZATIONS and are difficult to control e. Bureaucrats have the market cornered on expertise f. Bureaucrats play "bureaucratic politics" behind the politicians' backs
