Public value : theory and practice

John Benington (Editor), Mark H. Moore (Editor)
Since Mark H. Moore published his seminal book Creating Public Value, public value has become an essential frame of reference for policymakers and managers around the world. It has enabled academics and practitioners to make better sense of the complex issues facing governments, citizens and communities, and to lead and manage public and voluntary services more effectively. However, the political, economic and social environment is changing dramatically and today's public leaders and managers are under pressure not only to deliver more for less but also to engage more actively with citizens and civil society
