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: American Bureaucratic Politics. Barry Rabe will teach this section and use public management case material drawn from the federal and sub-federal levels of the United States. The course is designed for students who have prior expertise in American politics and governance and will have a strong intergovernmental emphasis.
