Aspects of Public Management Modernization and the Problems of its Implementation
Keywords:public sector, education, modernization, new public management.
The article addresses the challenges of 21st century public management. It requires good and
accommodating public service, effective management of finances, the adaptation of business management
experience, the expansion of public services, readjustment of services to segmented society, active
cooperation with communities and active help to the sphere of politics. For that purpose, “the new
public management“ methods are being implemented. Authors argue that a “softer“ version of “the
new public management“ is often identified as “the new office of the state“, and is more acceptable
for public management of continental European states (especially Mid-European countries), because
it promotes the development and expansion of a civil society.
