Organized by Deborah Wilson, this conference was co-funded by the Public Services Programme and the Centre for Market and Public Organisation. It took place on Friday 30 April 2010 at The Bristol Institute of Public Affairs.
How public services are managed, and how their management affects public service outcomes, will come under increasing scrutiny as budgets are squeezed through the 2010s by national and local governments. This one-day workshop considered evidence on the effects of alternative management practices across a range of public service contexts, including hospitals, children’s services and not-for-profit organisations.
