All three sections of 587 in Winter Term 2011 will continue to emphasize common themes such as performance management, strategic planning, and inter-institutional network development. But they will offer distinct differences in terms of applied content, reflecting the growing diversity of the FS student body. Indeed the original course was developed at a point when almost all FS students headed to public service in the US federal government. That obviously has changed and so this revised set of offerings is intended to respond to that diversity and give students greater ability to tailor core course selection to their own interests and needs.
Public Management 587: Comparative and International Perspectives. Jamie Gillies will teach this section and use public management case material drawn primarily from outside the United States. This will focus on a range of national cases, including Canada, and also consider international management perspective. The course is designed for students who have prior expertise in international or comparative politics and governance.
