The Public Management and Leadership specialisation focuses on how management and leadership shape the performance of organizations in the public sector. In times of increasing complexity, management is needed to ensure that public organizations operate in an effective, efficient and reliable manner. At the same time, leadership is necessary for public organizations to be adaptive, responsive and innovative. This specialisation connects state-of-the-art theory and research on management and leadership to contemporary trends in the public sector, such as collaborative networks, co-producing citizens, transformative organizational change and post-bureaucratic forms of organizing such as teamwork. The four specialisation courses of this program are built around the challenges that public organizations face. In today’s labour market, there is a great need for organizational professionals who understand how the performance of public sector organizations can be improved, and how strategic insights can be translated into effective organizational action. These are the professionals that the Public Management and Leadership specialisation aims to educate.
