Titel: Towards a Typology of Adaptive Governance
The Role of Decision-Making and Accountability
Forfatter: Wang, Cancan; Medaglia, Rony; Zheng, Lei
Resume: The increasing complexity of public issues and the rapid advancement of IT development and services (e.g., social media, big data) put high demands on government to develop internal capacity to evaluate, respond to, and implement new technologies and internal processes. Moreover, as governments in the last decades have increasingly transferred their capacities externally through outsourcing projects, following the tenets of New Public Management, they are often left with reduced skill sets and limited capacity. This has created challenges for governments to adapt within a short time to deal with potentially disruptive changes, especially in the implementation of new information technologies. Confronted with such challenges, governments have sought to deliver public services through new working relationships with private and non-government organizations. Such relationships are characterized by the voluntary combination of separate private and public organizations into a coherent service delivery system (Dawes and Eglene 2004), namely the public-private collaboration. In such new organizational set-ups, established mechanisms of governance that imply enhancing control and enforcing procedures are found no longer suitable for reacting and adapting quickly to changes in the environment (Gong and Janssen 2012). Governments are thus expected to adopt new organizational structures in order to accommodate the evolving and dynamic collaborative relationships around government.
