Huitink, David M. Van Slyke, and Trevor L. Ospina and Erica Gabrielle Foldy. Aristigueta and Robert B. In place of Wilson's first generation split, Gulick advocated a "seamless web of discretion and interaction". Gulick, Urwick, and the new generation of administrators built on the work of contemporary behavioural, administrative, and organizational scholars including Henri Fayol , Fredrick Winslow Taylor , Paul Appleby, Frank Goodnow, and Willam Willoughby.
The new generation of organizational theories no longer relied upon logical assumptions and generalizations about human nature like classical and enlightened theorists.
Gulick developed a comprehensive, generic theory of organization that emphasized the scientific method, efficiency, professionalism, structural reform, and executive control. Gulick summarized the duties of administrators with an acronym; POSDCORB , which stands for planning, organizing, staffing, directing, coordinating, reporting, and budgeting. Fayol developed a systematic, point treatment of private management. Second-generation theorists drew upon private management practices for administrative sciences.
A single, generic management theory bleeding the borders between the private and the public sector was thought to be possible. With the general theory, the administrative theory could be focused on governmental organizations.
The mids theorists challenged Wilson and Gulick. The politics-administration dichotomy remained the centre of criticism.
Public Administration experienced a kind of heyday due to the successful war effort and successful post war reconstruction in Western Europe and Japan. Government was popular as was President Eisenhower. In the s and s, government itself came under fire as ineffective, inefficient, and largely a wasted effort.
The costly American intervention in Vietnam along with domestic scandals including the bugging of Democratic party headquarters the Watergate scandal are two examples of self-destructive government behaviour that alienated citizens.
The costly Vietnam War alienated U. Public administration would have to distance itself from politics to answer this call and remain effective.
Elected officials supported these reforms. The Hoover Commission , chaired by University of Chicago professor Louis Brownlow , to examine reorganization of government. Brownlow subsequently founded the Public Administration Service PAS at the university, an organization which has provided consulting services to all levels of government until the s.
Later on, the human factor became a predominant concern and emphasis in the study of public administration. This period witnessed the development and inclusion of other social sciences knowledge, predominantly, psychology, anthropology, and sociology, into the study of public administration Jeong, Appleby Policy and Administration , Frank Marini 'Towards a New Public Administration' , and others that have contributed positively in these endeavors. In the s, new public management became prevalent throughout the bureaucracies of the US, the UK and, to a lesser extent, in Canada.
The original public management theories have roots attributed to policy analysis, according to Richard Elmore in his article published in the " Journal of Policy Analysis and Management ". In New Public Management, people are viewed as economic units not democratic participants which is the hazard of linking an MBA business administration, economic and employer-based model too closely with the public administration governmental, public good sector.
Nevertheless, the NPM model one of four described by Elmore in , including the "generic model" is still widely accepted at multiple levels of government e. In the late s, Janet and Robert Denhardt proposed a new public services model in response to the dominance of NPM. One example of this is openforum. Another new public service model is what has been called New Public Governance, an approach which includes a centralization of power; an increased number, role and influence of partisan-political staff; personal-politicization of appointments to the senior public service; and, the assumption that the public service is promiscuously partisan for the government of the day.
Thus, the same public policy and public administration was to apply to all citizens, inclusive of disability.
