The rigid, hierarchical and bureaucratic form of public administration, which has predominated for most of the twentieth century, is changing to a flexible, market based form of public administration. This is not simply a matter of reform or a minor change in management style, but a change in the role of government in society and the relationship between government and citizenry. The public sectors of western countries have undergone major change as governments try to responds to the challenges of technological change, globalization and international competitiveness.
