Public sector strategy, concepts, cases and tools, Mark Crowder, Mohammad Roohanifar and Trevor A. Brown

"Public Sector Strategy explores how strategic decisions are developed and implemented in the public sector, and examines the psychology underpinning strategic decision-making. Combining knowledge from traditional perspectives with contemporary insights on strategic management, this book considers how managers make their decisions and provides key concepts and practical tools to aid delivery of strategy within highly institutionalized settings. This book provides theoretical grounding, real-life global cases and practical examples of strategic decisions in an international public-sector context by working through the underpinnings of strategy, the influencing factors of strategic decision-making, strategic implementation, and strategic tools in practice. It should be a core textbook for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students studying Public Sector Strategy and Strategic Management more broadly. It will also be of benefit for public sector managers, consultants, and private sector organizations who wish to interact with the public sector"--, Provided by publisher
