The Public Administration Casebook is a practice-based collection that speaks to the lived experience of students and prepares them to become more effective practioners of public and non-profit sectors by providing case studies arranged around major themes in public administration.

Key Features:

  • The 14 case studies are organized by main themes of public administration including political context of public administration, bureaucracy and organizational structure, organizational culture, leadership, human relations administration, budgeting, ethics, and decision making.

  • Since they reflect actual experience, each case contains one or two secondary themes illustrating how the fundamental concepts and issues that students learn about function in concert in the real world.

  • Students worked with the text authors to create, develop, and write each of these case studies so that the material better reflects current workplace realities and therefore results in a more meaningful learning experience for everyone.

  • The focus on students provides a teaching case methodology that serves as an easily adaptable model for other instructors.
