Public Management Methodology and Tools: NPM and Citistat

Via mlq3, New Public Management (NPM) principles as written about by Willy Prilles, and Governing by Numbers via Citistat as explained by Urbano de la Cruz.

Update (05-01-07): Willy Prilles explains his thoughts on NPM and Privatization where he states three conclusions:

"One, it is unwise to put our faith wholly on market forces to provide all the goods and services required by society. Two, it is a disservice to NPM to assume that privatization is the only way achieve a lean state; there are other tools that can pretty much achieve the same objective, such as decentralization. Finally, the devil is in the details; there is no one-size-fits-all formula to pursue NPM, and the choice of the most appropriate tools depends on a given context."

I agree 100%.
