Administrative reform and innovation are the most important mantras in public administration today. The reader discusses the essential dynamic and change involved in administrative systems. With substantial annotated material from the volume editors which blends the theoretical implications of administrative changes with useful and highly comparative cases, this volume seeks to understand how change and innovation affects governance, how the administrative system copes with the needs of innovative management. The volume argues that set in the systemic ecological perspective administrative change would involve not only the changes within the administrative system but also modifications in the functioning of the system. Change is very often introduced to bring about a holistic transformation of the organization or bureaucratic complex.
