Description:

This book shows students entering the public service as well as professionals in the field how to become ethically competent to provide the leadership needed to advance the public interest. The contributors address three central questions: --What does it mean to be ethically competent?--How does one achieve a satisfactory level of ethical competence?--How does ethical competence contribute to effective public service leadership? The book doesn't just talk about ethics. The authors describe how ethical competence should guide organizational conduct, with prescriptions based on: --Knowledge of the normative foundations of public administrative ethics,--A thorough grounding in organization theory and behavior, and--Knowledge of organization development and the design approach. All chapters are original, and written by experts in the PA field for this book. The editors have reviewed and personally edited each contribution to ensure readability and overall comprehensiveness. They have also written an especially useful introductory chapter, conclusion, and detailed section openers.
