Unit 1. The study of public administration and bureaucracy. Is contemporary public administration theory more influential than its classical counterpart? -- Can public administration be international in scope? -- Is bureaucracy the best option for organizing government? -- Unit 2. Dilemmas of public policy. Is it possible to balance efficiency and equity in public policy? -- Do bureaucrats have more influence on public policy than other branches of government do? -- Is it possible to coordinate federal, state, and local governments in a way that allows policy making to be more efficient? -- Unit 3. The politics-administration dichotomy. Do bureaucrats need to be politically neutral to be effective? -- Should government run like a business? -- Should governments use the private sector to deliver public services? -- Unit 4. Functions of government workers : administration, management, and budgeting. Does performance management lead to better policy outcomes? -- Is employment equity necessary? -- Is it possible to motivate workers in a manner that increases job satisfaction in the public sector? -- Should incrementalism be the guiding budgeting philosophy of public agencies? -- Do we need more budget flexibility for discretionary spending compared to entitlements? -- Unit 5. Administrative ethics. Should whistleblowing be encouraged in the public service? -- Are external controls effective tools for ensuring principled conduct? -- Should public employees have collective bargaining rights? -- Unit 6.
