Aspects of Public Management Modernization and the Problems of its Implementation

Vainius Smalskys, Eugenijus Skietrys


The article addresses the challenges of 21st century public management. It requires good and accommodating public service, effective management of finances, the adaptation of business management experience, the expansion of public services, readjustment of services to segmented society, actine cooperation with communities and active help to the sphere of politics. For that purpose, “the new public management“ methods are being implemented. Authors argue that a “softer“ version of “the new public management“ is often identified as “the new office of the state“, and is more acceptable for public management of continental European states (especially Mid-European countries), because it promotes the development and expansion of a civil society.
