Seminar on ‘Public Value Management and how to manage external providers in public service delivery’ with Professor John Alford

In this session John Alford will present an argument about how public value management has become a dominant and important trend in research and practice in public management and governance. Taking his cue from Mark Moore’s concept of “creating public value”, John Alford will explore how government managers can work with external providers in a variety of ways to create value that is appreciated by the public. Paul Du Gay from CBS will respond to John Alford’s presentation. After that there will be an open discussion. The target audience for this session is researchers and public management practitioners in government and external providers in private sector companies, NGOs and associations.
