Prof. Benon Basheka, Vice Chancellor Uganda Technology and Management University (UTAMU), has published a new book on Public Management in Africa.

The cover of the new book titled; “New Public Management in Africa: Emerging Issues and Lessons” was recently released by the publishers in the USA.

Published by Taylor & Francis, the book is edited by Benon C. Basheka (PhD) is a Professor of Public Administration and Management; and Lukamba-Muhiya Tshombe, an associate professor in public management and administration at the Vaal Triangle Campus of North-West University of South Africa.

The 240 paged book addresses much-needed theoretical foundations for the NPM discussion, and reflects on the role of already implemented reforms in the development of several African states.

Book Description:

The administrative sciences were strongly dominated by public administration's turn to managerial perspectives in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, and "New Public Management" promised to produce efficient, responsible, and client-oriented public services. The reforms carried out in this pursuit were often accompanied by great optimism and rapid, enthusiastic steps toward implementation.  Even in highly developed industrial countries, however, it was often overlooked that such fundamental reforms must consider not only the political and cultural contexts of the implementing country, but also the specific conditions required for any successful reforms. New Public Management in Africa: Emerging Issues and Lessons provides much-needed theoretical foundations for the NPM discussion, and reflects on the role of already implemented reforms in the development of several African states.

The individual contributions provide important analyses of academic discourse, practical policy, achievements, and desiderata. The book provides a valuable impetus for public administration research in and on African states, but it also contributes directly to policymaking by sharing findings on the results of reforms to date and adjustments required for these reforms to succeed. For public administration researchers outside of Africa, this book offers a report on New Public Management reforms in African states and information that is unavailable or difficult to find elsewhere, contributing much to the exchange between African administration science research and that of other states, and demonstrating that African administrative research is well-prepared to help resolve global challenges.

 

 

Two students under the UTAMU-MUST PhD programme this week successfully defended their PhD theses. UTAMU in partnership with Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST) has been running a Phd Programme which has been a great success since it started in November 2013.

The students who successfully defended their theses before a panel of examiners and an audience included George Lukwago and Kyatuha Ovia Mwisaka.

Lukwago’s thesis titled “Developing a Constructive Validity for Motivation of Employees in the National Agricultural Research Organization (NARO) - Uganda: Validation of Herzberg’s Theory” focused on understanding “Employee Motivation.” He argues that motivation is known as a key factor in employee job satisfaction an area that has not been given much attention and investigation to identify the key motivational factors related to agricultural research.

Mwisaka defended her thesis titled “Bureaucracy and Decision Making in Public and Private Universities in Uganda: A Comparative Study.”

Asiimwe also defended his thesis titled “Corporate Governance Practices and Performance of Kampala Capital City Authority (Uganda) and City of Kigali: A Correlational Comparative Study.”
