PUAD-5100: Organizational Designs for Governance and Public Management
Description: This class examines the organizational designs of government for the purposes of governance and public management. It encompasses the basic constitutional and political designs of government; the structures and principles governing the relationship between the partisan-political and non-partisan public-service institutions of government; the organization and roles of the central executive and corporate policy and management agencies; the organization of portfolios, departments and agencies for the management of policy and operational functions; and, the structures and processes of accountability for governance and public management. The class is focused on the Canadian system of government but addresses basic questions of organizational theory and design in a comparative context.
