Culture and Public Management Reforms: A Review and Research Agenda on the Basis of Experiences in Switzerland

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
The chapter summarizes evidence from Switzerland to suggest that culture proves to be an useful hypothesis to explain variations in Public Management Reforms (PMR) in different arrangements. Culture, which is among other things embedded in politics, society, and public administration seems to have a strong impact on reform initiation, impact, and outcome as well. The review shows that an optimal culture fit between traditional and desired values appears promising. The chapter concludes that public sector reforms should consider cultural, historical, and geopolitical factors additionally when trying to conceptualize PMR in different settings.
