Public Management

Public Management is one of the subfields of political science and politics on the whole. The term Public Management hints at the resemblance that the political structure bears to the social and private sector. Therefore, some of the management methods used there can also be applied to politics. Public Management seems to appear especially helpful in developed nations, where all kinds of structures already have been shaped well.

A Master in Public Management is interdisciplinary, involving Public Administration, Public Relations, Human Rights, Humanities, as well as Cultural Studies, where culture is understood as one of the most powerful aspects that influence modern multicultural societies. Professionals trained with a Master in Public Management acquire skills of decision-making and dealing with conflicts of interests and public infrastructures by performing policy analysis.

Masters in Public Management. People negotiate daily. As a matter of fact negotiation happens several times a day. Despite the frequency of negotiations few people know how to negotiate well and achieve the most optimal outcomes. Many people believe that good negotiators are born. However, in reality anyone can improve their negotiation skills very considerably through training. At the Center for Public Policy and Competitiveness, we teach a negotiation framework that has proved effective both locally and globally. In the current public policy context leaders often need to manage change and this requires incorporating of multiple stakeholders interests which requires excellent negotiation skills. The challenges faced in negotiating with Senators, Governors, Executive Directors and Union staff have one unique technical difficulty- your opponent in one issue may be an ally in the next. Oftentimes public meetings are contentious or participants are deeply divided along issues of resources, values or even identity. Diffusing contentious situations and arriving at a workable solution is both an art and a science that requires a specific set of skills and practice. Individuals involved in analysis, formulation and implementation of public policy need to know the fundamentals of negotiations. They not only need to have the goal in mind, but they must also know how they will achieve the goal. Reaching the goal requires them to know how to say “no” while maintaining a relationship, how to close a deal on time-not too early nor too late, how to present the main interests clearly, how to...
