The key questions addressed in this chapter are: How have public management reforms developed in Denmark? What are the key management tools in place and what explains their use? What are the outcomes and implications of public management reform in Denmark? This chapter describes how Denmark has turned into a Neo-Weberian State using digital era governance elements where a modernized and efficient state, spurred on by the Danish Ministry of Finance, is aided by a digital reform effort focusing on outcomes and results, and a more integrated and holistic approach. The outcome of the various modernization programmes and reforms in Denmark over the last decades is a rather robust and well performing public sector. This is confirmed by the various international rankings where Denmark consistently scores high on most management and governance criteria.

This chapter is situated at the nexus of two literatures: theoretical ideas from political science on the relationship between politics and markets, and the more recent public policy phenomenon of public–private partnerships (PPPs). It aims first to map some of the primary theoretical underpinnings describing the enduring relationship between governments and businesses. It then focuses on the adoption of PPPs as a popular infrastructure policy, and asks to what extent a particular political-market logic for the adoption of PPP policies appears to exist in leading jurisdictions such as the UK, Australia and Canada. It suggests that the empirical evidence on the undue influence of business over political decision making is not one sided and that the arena is still hotly contested. It also suggests that the policy logic of PPPs may be dependent on the relative maturity of governance systems, the relative maturity of PPP markets, and the political and public management environments in question. A taxonomy based on Kingdon’s conceptualization of the policy window is presented. The chapter also comments on the development of the PPP phenomenon over the last three decades and highlights particular characteristics influencing the policy path.
