Program Overview

New challenges from consistent change across sectors both domestically and globally have arisen and demands on government have increased. However, the public sector has often merely reacted due to poor adaptation in a rapidly evolving international, economic, social, and cultural environment. Fragmented and fractious inter-governmental arrangements characterized by slow bureaucratic processes, conflicting rules, competing objectives, organizational stovepipes, and overlapping programs are significant impediments to meeting public needs. The course will examine the new Grand Challenges in public administration through an examination of behavioral public administration, democracy, and managing public organizations. Participants will be encouraged to seek innovative and ambitious goals to develop paradigm shifts in thinking and significant changes in government functioning that will generate large individual, governmental, and societal impacts. Moreover, participants in this course will learn how to lead and manage the public interest by thinking critically, solving problems, and making evidence-informed decisions in a complex and dynamic environment.

Program Objectives
