The SIG welcomes colleagues studying any aspect of management and governance in the public sector although there are a number of areas of special interest within the group. These relate to the impacts of public service reform and include healthcare management, an emphasis on the extent and nature of organizational and institutional change, the improvement agenda and the effects of reform on strategy and HRM. The SIG is interested in research conducted at macro, meso and micro levels of organization, on any part of the public sector (e.g. central government, local government, health services) and also the third sector. There is also a significant theme within the wider PMG SIG which considers a multi-disciplinary focus on healthcare organization and management issues as a platform for developing understanding and practice. Anyone wishing to join the SIG should contact the SIG Chair (see below for contact details).
