Managing from the Strategic Core
The state is politically and administratively managed from the strategic core. Discussion is limited to the strategic plan that each organization is required to have, and the managerial strategy that each public management reform will choose. Although relevant as major management tools, does not discuss information technology, the Internet, and personnel. Among the management strategies developed in the private sector, quality control is the one that most management reforms in the OECD countries and in Brazil have been adopting. This is because, in the evaluation process, it is not limited to the profit objective but sets a number of other criteria, which, being qualitative, adapt well to public management. On the other hand, management contracts are another essential tool for public management reform.
