New Public Management and the Performance of Public Services: a Missing Link?

This research project wants to test whether and why New Public Management does (not) matter for performance. The project builds on the management matters research line, but addresses its two major limitations. Primarily, our project will seek better theoretical explanations for correlations between management and performance. Secondly, by going beyond the statistical testing, we search the generative mechanisms of the relationship between NPM and performance by asking why, how and under what conditions management matters.
