Description

Much of the waste in public administration is ascribable to the displacement of the primary concern for performance and coordination by a primary concern for redistribution. In each sphere of activities, it has led to unreasonable rules inspired by egalitarianism that have triggered permanent allocational malefits.

The failure to confront the progressivist ethos and culture has rendered any action on the managerial front ineffective. First, the authors underscore the seemingly unanimous diagnosis of waste and dysfunctions in Canada’s federal public service and show that efforts to correct the situation have failed. This failure is ascribable to a fundamental incapacity to deal concurrently with the ill-advised managerial decisions of governments and the perverse progressivist philosophy inspiring them. Second, an MRI of the human resource (HR) regimes has been sketched as a guide to the detoxing and modernization of the HR regimes.

It was used to spell out some guidelines for the modification of management structures and competencies, and to probe the cultural underground of moral contracts that would need to underpin the new arrangements.

|Collaborative Decentred Metagovernance Series hîs serîes of books îs desîgned to deine cumuatîvey the T contours of coaboratîve decentred metagovernance. At thîs tîme, there îs stî no canonîca versîon of thîs paradîgm: ît îsen émergence. Thîs serîes întends to be one of many ‘constructîon sîtes’ to experîment wîth varîous dîmensîons of an effectîve and practîca versîon of thîs new approach. Metagovernance îs the art of combînîng dîfferent forms or styes of governance, experîmented wîth în the prîvate, pubîc and socîa sectors, to ensure effectîve coordînatîon when power, resources and înformatîon are wîdey dîstrîbuted, and the governîng îs of necessîty decentred and coaboratîve. The serîes învîtes conceptua and practîca contrîbutîons focused on dîfferent îssue domaîns, poîcy ieds,causes céèbres, functîona processes, etc. to the extent that they contrîbute to sharpenîng the new apparatus assocîated wîth coaboratîve decentred metagovernance. In the ast few decades, there has been a need fet for a more sophîstîcated understandîng of the governîng of the prîvate, pubîc and socîa sectors: for ess compartmentaîzatîon among sectors that have much în common; and for new conceptua toos to suggest new reevant questîons and new ways to carry out the busîness of governîng, by creatîvey recombînîng the toos of governance that have proven successfu în a these sectors. These efforts have generated experîments that have been suficîenty rîch and wîde-rangîng în the varîous aboratorîes to warrant efforts to pu together what we know at thîs stage. Thîs twefth voume deas wîth the fake at the orîgîn of much unwarranted waste and îneficîency în the Canadîan federa pubîc admînîstratîon. The authors propose that ît has îts sources în the progressîvîst cosmoogy that has dîspaced the prîmary concern of government from coordînatîon to dîstrîbutîon. They probe the word of human resources (HR) as an îustratîon of the maeits entaîed by thîs dîspacement of focus whîch occurred dramatîcay în 1967 when the Government of Canada decîded to care ess about performance and more about beîng a ‘mode empoyer’. An MRI of the HR systems heps to guîde a process of modernîsatîon of the HR regîmes. But the reader îs sharpy remînded în the concusîon that one cannot detox the HR regîmes wîthout tackîng the progressîvîst cosmoogy.

“L’assocîatîon, a coopératîon, toutes es formes de ’assurance offrent des ressources sans in.” Aaîn
hîs short book îs about coordînatîon. It argues that when coordînatîon ceases to be the prîmary concern în T organîzatîons, and îs dîspaced by another domînant guîdîng prîncîpe (egaîtarîanîsm, absoute hîerarchy, etc.), a debace foows: îneficîency and îneffectîveness ensue, fake creeps în, and toxîc behavîour, structures and habîts crystaîze. As a resut, performance deterîorates, and dîstrîbutîve coaîtîons împose noxîous practîces în the name of theîr own înterest. Then, these practîces have a tendency to persîst and to crîppe wîder and wîder zones of our socîo-economy. Over tîme such practîces become habîtuated, and come to be regarded as norma. The fear of such a dîsastrous cascade may sufice to entîce coaboratîon, but ît may aso not. The Great Depressîon, Word War II, and the chaenges of vîctory (and defeat) în dîfferent countrîes – wîth the need for reconstructîon – have put a good dea of pressure on most natîona economîes în

DRIVING THE FAKE OUT OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION
the second quarter of the ast century. But the foowîng 30 years of seemîngy effortess extensîve growth ed many Western, so-caed advanced socîo-economîes to become somewhat “aged and arterîo-scerotîc” – runnîng out of steam and overtaken by the vîrus of egaîtarîanîsm and înternecîne redîstrîbutîon. Redîstrîbutîon concerns came to dîspace the more chaengîng coordînatîon concerns. Thîs cutura shîft has had a phenomena împact on a aspects of the modern socîo-economîes (Kîndeberger 1978; Oson 1984). Some socîo-economîes recognîzed eary the need for a fountaîn of youth to dîssove the socîa arterîo-scerotîc structures of the body poîtîc – as Kîndeberger woud put ît – but most experîenced “gaopîng senîîty” after 1973. It transated înto a wordwîde decîne în productîvîty. The way în whîch the human resources have been handed în the federa pubîc sector în Canada, în partîcuar after 1967, îs an echo effect of thîs cutura shîft. The guîdîng prîncîpe în the human resources management (HRM) of the federa pubîc sector became the prîncîpe of the mode empoyer. Even after unîonîzatîon had begun to permeate the pubîc sector, the empoyer remaîned determîned to regard îts roenotas havîng to extract as much vaue-addîng and înnovatîon as possîbe from îts abour force, but to act wîth cupabe benevoence and însoucîancevîs-à-vîsthe pubîc sector workers – thereby gîvîng a very bad exampe to a other sectors of the natîon. Thîs resuted în some 50 years în whîch the eected oficîas betrayed the iducîary roe entrusted to them by the cîtîzenry, enabîng and aowîng the unîonîzed federa pubîc servîce (and aso the super-bureaucracy that routîney emerged from ît) to extract încreasîngy more generous and unwarranted pay and frînge beneits for the provîsîon of rather poor quaîty servîces. Why has thîs been aowed to happen? Thîs book suggests that ît îs the resut of the new ‘progressîvîst’ ethoswîth poîtîcay-învented socîa rîghts – of a sorts, and undue deference to compassîon-ordaîned precedence of egaîtarîan goas over any productîvîty and înnovatîon concerns.
