Chapter 27: Public management and program effectiveness in US public administration

Carolyn J. Hill


This chapter describes how public management and program evaluation research communities address questions of program effectiveness and how they explore possible associations with public management. It depicts an accumulating, but disperse, body of knowledge. Further, it depicts research silos, where public management researchers are relatively absent from recent and robust methodological and substantive developments in the program evaluation field. The chapter suggests that public management researchers can more effectively engage in research on program effectiveness and public management by addressing both what questions garner research attention, as well as how they are addressed.
